Steeped in history, Alexandria is a suburb of Washington, D.C., located only eight miles from the nation’s capital. The area offers a diverse range of attractions for visitors near and far.

Start your adventure by acquainting yourself with the city of Alexandria. Take a tour through Old Town and wander through its cobblestone streets lined with charming brick buildings and architecture. At night, get spooky with one of the city’s ghost and graveyard tours, delving deep into some of the many unsolved mysteries and tales from times of the past.

Our clinic is situated about 15 miles from George Washington’s Mount Vernon. Considered America’s most popular historic estate, the property spans 8,000 acres, 500 of which have been meticulously preserved beside the Potomac River.

The legendary estate is open 365 days a year and now sees about a million annual guests. It includes a mansion, several outbuildings, and four gardens. Visitors can also see the tomb of George and Martha Washington and pay their respects by attending a daily wreath-laying ceremony.

Take in some more Potomac waterfront views with a visit to the scenic Mount Vernon Trail, an 18-mile paved trail for pedestrians and cyclists stretching from George Washington’s Mount Vernon to Theodore Roosevelt Island. Constructed in the 1970s and 80s, the trail sees more than a million annual passersby. The portion north of Alexandria is considered one of the most traveled multi-use trails in the country during its peak season.

Immerse yourself in the city’s fascinating history at Gadsby’s Tavern Museum. Located about five miles from our Alexandria vein clinic, the museum comprises both a tavern and hotel. It was named for its former operator Englishman John Gadsby. The buildings were later saved from demolition due to a purchase by American Legion Post 24, prompting the start of restoration efforts. The buildings were then donated to the City of Alexandria in 1972, restored further, and re-opened for America’s Bicentennial Celebration in 1976.

Continue to honor our nation’s first president with a visit to the George Washington Masonic National Memorial. Completed in 1970, the memorial contains numerous artifacts and educational resources about the American Freemasons. Its large Square and Compasses emblem was added to the front lawn in 1999, increasing visibility and adding to the Masonic essence of the memorial itself.

As part of the African American History Division, the Alexandria Black History Museum promotes the city’s objective of building a welcoming community through equity and inclusion. Located just five miles from our Alexandria vein clinic, the museum also encompasses the Watson Reading Room and the Alexandria African American Heritage Park.

A bit further down the road, you’ll find the famed Torpedo Factory Arts Center. Transformed from a munitions plant from more than a century ago, the space was opened in 1974 and serves as a testament to the city’s devotion to public art.

Today, the Torpedo Factory Arts Center gets about half a million annual visitors. It’s used as a space to watch artists at work, participate in workshops, and purchase original pieces. The Torpedo Factory Arts Center is considered home to the country’s biggest collection of working artists’ open studios found under one roof.

CVR in Alexandria can be reached easily via I-395, making it a convenient and ambient stop for greater Washington, D.C. residents. The Metrorail system provides safe, clean, reliable transit service and connects Alexandria and Washington, D.C.

Services at Center for Vein Restoration, Alexandria

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 the following:

These symptoms are often the result of venous insufficiency and are unlikely to heal on their own. This common vein condition is progressive and will likely worsen 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 outpatient vein treatments require only local anesthetics. Recovery and symptom relief are fast, and there is little to no scarring.
