Center for Vein Restoration: 15+ Years in Venous Care and Growing Strong

Established in 2007 by world-renowned and respected cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon Sanjiv Lakhanpal, MD, FACS, CVR exists to provide venous health care that radically improves lives. Dr. Lakhanpal envisioned providing safe, personalized, and positive treatment for a woefully underserved population suffering from venous insufficiency.

At its beginning, Dr. Lakhanpal cared for approximately 100 patients from a single clinic in the Washington, DC, area. Since then, CVR has expanded to 100+ locations (and growing), with 70+ board-certified physicians in twenty-two states impacting the lives of over 200,000 patients annually and achieving a 98 percent patient satisfaction rating.

"The partnership with Virginia Vein Center, and particularly with an immensely talented, empathetic, and experienced physician such as Dr. Markovitz, helps fulfill CVR's mission to improve lives in the communities we serve. Together, we provide state-of-the-art vascular care in a compassionate and affordable manner in an environment of clinical excellence, integrity, mutual respect, and trust.
Alliances like this with Virginia Vein Care go a long way to redefine and strengthen the care of patients with venous disorders throughout the United States." – Sanjiv Lakhanpal, MD, FACS, Founder & CEO, Center for Vein Restoration

About Venous Insufficiency

Venous insufficiency, the cause of significant suffering due to the sequelae of venous hypertension, most commonly arises as achy, tired, and heavy legs. This common and underdiagnosed disorder affects between 30 to 40 million Americans. Risk factors include age, weight, prolonged sitting or standing, genetics, and DVT (blood clot) history. Treatment options have evolved to an array of minimally invasive procedures in an office setting.
