May 4, 2021, Greenbelt, MD: Center for Vein Restoration (CVR), the national leader in treating varicose and spider veins, has announced a new partnership with Dr. John Mathai, owner of Premier Vein Specialists in York and Hanover, Pennsylvania. These clinics are the sixth and seventh CVR locations in PA.

A cardiac surgeon, Dr. John Mathai specializes in phlebology and is an expert in diagnosing and treating venous disorders. He is double board-certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Thoracic Surgery and is a Member of the American College of Phlebology.

“Assuring a good fit is an essential part of the growth and vibrancy that Center for Vein Restoration enjoys,” said Dr. Sanjiv Lakhanpal, CEO & President of CVR. “For an organization that is as physician-centric as CVR, adding an eminently qualified vein specialist such as Dr. Mathai is advantageous for the company. Still, more importantly, having a skilled professional like Dr. Mathai is most beneficial to the patients he serves,” added Dr. Lakhanpal.

Dr. Mathai is devoted to building trusting relationships with his patients. He accomplishes this by making every patient feel comfortable and welcome in his practice. He takes the time to explain the diagnosis and treatment plan thoroughly and is in constant communication during a procedure so that the patient understands every step and is at ease.


Venous insufficiency, the cause of significant suffering due to the sequelae of venous hypertension, most commonly arises as achy, tired, and heavy legs. It may or may not be associated with varicose veins, spider veins, or skin changes, including venous ulcerations, and indiscriminately affects between 30–40 million Americans. Numerous factors, including age, weight, prolonged sitting or standing, genetics, or a history of DVT (blood clots), can increase the risk of developing this common and often underdiagnosed disorder. Treatment options have evolved to an array of minimally invasive procedures in an office setting.


Center for Vein Restoration (CVR) is the largest physician-led practice treating vein disease in the country. Having performed its first procedure in 2007 under President and CEO Dr. Sanjiv Lakhanpal, Center for Vein Restoration has since become nationally recognized as the clinical leader in treating chronic venous insufficiency. With 100+ centers and growing, CVR has over 600 employees and conducts over 200,000 patient interactions annually. To learn more about CVR and its mission, visit or by phone at 240-965-3915.
