Our Vein Clinic in Bronx-Grand Concourse, New York
Center for Vein Restoration’s vein center in Bronx-Grand Concourse, New York, is a 5.2-mile-long thoroughfare in the borough of the Bronx in New York City. Grand Concourse runs through several neighborhoods, including Bedford Park, Concourse, Highbridge, Fordham, Mott Haven, Norwood, and Tremont.
The Bronx’s most famous street, The Grand Concourse, has a rich and interesting history, dating back to 1890 when it was designed by a French immigrant to resemble the Champs-Élysées in Paris and connect the borough of Manhattan to the northern Bronx.
When visiting the Concourse, the Bronx Museum of the Arts is a must-see and features sculptures, portraits, and special events. Admission is always free, but visitors may reserve their free tickets in advance.
The Edgar Allan Poe Cottage, the former home of the American writer located in the Fordham neighborhood of the Bronx, was a “quiet cottage, surrounded by fields and orchards and far from the noisy and polluted city.” Poe wrote some of his most famous works in the cottage, including Annabel Lee, Eureka,
and The Bells.
One can reach our vein center via the Major Deegan Expressway or Grand Concourse.

Services at Center for Vein Restoration, Bronx-Grand Concourse
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:
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.
