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
Center for Vein Restoration’s Albuquerque clinic serves the residents of New Mexico’s largest city. Our mission is to offer the most advanced treatments for varicose veins, spider veins, and other vascular disorders.
Our office is conveniently located in the Spruce Park neighborhood, east of downtown and near the University of Mexico. We offer a full slate of therapies to reduce the pain and swelling of varicose veins. Among the treatments Center for Vein Restoration provides is sclerotherapy. This simple procedure uses a safe solution to eliminate spider veins and smaller varicose veins.
Endovenous laser ablation and endovenous radiofrequency ablation are often used to treat large varicose veins. In these procedures, thermal heat from laser or radiofrequency waves seal the damaged vein, so blood diverts to nearby healthy veins. Another proven method, ambulatory phlebectomy, removes the clogged vein through two tiny incisions.
Center for Vein Restoration uses innovative ways to treat vein disease. These newer techniques include VenaSeal, a procedure that binds the walls of the varicose veins with a proprietary medical adhesive. Another method is Varithena, during which a microfoam is injected into the vein to collapse it. During the ClariVein procedure, mechanical destruction of the vein with a sclerosing agent is fast and comfortable using a local anesthetic. All these treatments are done in our clinics with little to no anesthesia. We also work with our patients to ensure a full recovery.
Our physician and staff will discuss lifestyle changes to reduce the pain and swelling of varicose veins, such as exercise, proper diet, and wearing compression stockings. Your CVR vein physician deeply listens to your concerns. After a thorough health history and ultrasound, a treatment plan to help you look and feel your best.
Steeped in Native American and Spanish culture and cuisine, Albuquerque offers a variety of recreational, dining, and cultural activities. Not far from the city’s modern downtown is Old Town Albuquerque. Founded as a Spanish colony in 1706, the area is lined with historic adobe buildings, including the San Felipe de Neri Church and five museums. Visitors and locals alike can learn about the city’s Native American history at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. In addition to its cultural pleasures, Albuquerque is famous for its hot air balloons, so you can take in the city from the sky.

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:
Feelings of heaviness
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.
