About Center for Vein Restoration in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Center for Vein Restoration (CVR) is proud to serve patients at our Albuquerque vein clinic. The physicians and staff at CVR Albuquerque have decades of collective experience treating symptoms of vein diseases such as varicose veins, spider veins, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and other vein conditions related to chronic venous insufficiency (vein disease).

The board-certified physicians at Center for Vein Restoration are world-renowned vein specialists, authors, lecturers, and trainers on the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating vein disease. Commitment to patient care goes beyond physician credentials, however. Our entire team works together to provide our patients with a level of comfort and understanding.

Our Vein Clinic in Albuquerque, New Mexico

You’ll receive expert care at Center for Vein Restoration in Albuquerque, New Mexico’s largest city. Also known as “the Duke City,” Albuquerque boasts a rich culture with indoor and outdoor attractions for visitors of all kinds.

Out-of-area visitors will love learning about local wildlife at the ABQ BioPark, where they can visit the zoo and aquarium before heading to the park’s botanic garden which has more than 30 acres of plant and vegetation exhibits. The garden also features a BUGarium, a highly acclaimed series of displays showcasing different bugs and insects nationwide.

Albuquerque’s Botanic Garden ranked as one of the best 12 in the country by the Travel Channel. It’s not an attraction visitors want to miss!

Afterward, get immersed in the city’s wildlife by taking a desert hike through one of Albuquerque’s many scenic trails, ranging from beginning to more difficult levels of terrain. Among the most popular is the Petroglyph National Monument, a steep, 17-mile-long slope of volcanic basalt with several different trails and recreational areas. Three of its four trails offer glimpses of the Petroglyph itself — a spread of volcanic rock with about 24,000 carvings done by early Spanish settlers and Native Americans.

October visitors are in luck — the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta runs from dawn through dusk for nine days. The highly anticipated show lights up the sky with dazzling displays of hot air balloons of all colors, making for what locals call the best time of the year.

Explore more stunning scenery with a trip on the Sandia Peak Tramway, which allows visitors to gaze with wonder as they ascend to the peak of the 10,378-foot-high Sandia Mountains before being treated to an astonishing panoramic view of the 11,000 square miles surrounding them. The spectacular experience offers both fine and casual dining options at the top of the tram, giving guests the rare opportunity to elevate themselves even more with a mouthwatering meal while already fully immersed in the pinnacle of Albuquerque’s breathtaking landscapes.

Indulge further in the modernized and authentic Southwestern flavors of the city by visiting some of its countless taquerias, burrito shops, and other Mexican eateries. Several can be found intertwined with the businesses that make up Old Town, considered the “crossroads of the Southwest.” The community quickly became a staple of Albuquerque culture following its inception by Governor Francisco Cuervo y Valdés in 1706 and has grown to include more than 150 shops, restaurants, museums, and interactive cultural experiences.

Visitors can finish their trip with a vibrant educational adventure at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, described as the Gateway to the 19 Pueblos of Mexico. Featuring exhibits from Pueblo artists, a store stocked with traditional and antique souvenirs, and a kitchen serving up authentic Indigenous cuisine, the IPCC makes the perfect final stop for anyone visiting New Mexico — the ‘Land of Enchantment.’

Services at Center for Vein Restoration, Albuquerque

Our board-certified vascular surgeons offer a wide range of innovative treatment options for leg pain, swelling, cramping, itching, varicose veins, spider veins, restless leg syndrome, ulcers, and other symptoms of vascular disease.

Symptoms of vein problems

When the tiny valves in your leg veins fail to circulate blood back to the heart it can be a sign of venous disease.

The result can be:

These symptoms are often the result of venous insufficiency and are unlikely to heal on their own. This common vein condition is progressive, meaning it will get worse without treatment.

Vein treatment options

Vein care providers at vein treatment clinics use the most advanced minimally invasive treatments available today. CVR’s modern outpatient treatment plans are far superior to the older vein-stripping methods used in the past.

Treatments include VenaSeal, a proprietary medical adhesive that safely closes off varicose veins, and ClariVein, a two-in-one approach that uses an ablation device to inject a sclerosing agent that closes the vein with a tiny rotating wire tip, which destroys the diseased vein.

At Center for Vein Restoration we offer a wide variety of other treatment options including:

Vein treatments take approximately an hour or less to complete, and patients can return to their normal routine immediately with few restrictions. No staples or stitches are required because a simple band-aid covers the tiny incisions. Our in-office treatment requires only local anesthetics and recovery and symptom relief are fast, and there is little to no scarring.
