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.

Our Vein Clinic in Columbia, South Carolina

Center for Vein Restoration’s vein clinic in Columbia offers South Carolinians state-of-the-art outpatient vein care for those suffering from the unsightly, debilitating symptoms of venous insufficiency (vein disease). Symptoms include leg veins such as varicose veins and spider veins, leg pain, cramping, itching, heaviness, restless legs, ulcers, and deep vein thrombosis.

Relief from your vein problems starts with a consultation with our board-certified vein doctor and the caring staff. After a thorough examination, including a painless duplex ultrasound which uses sound waves to “see” your leg's veins, our vein doctor will review your treatment plan. Cutting-edge treatment options provided at our Columbia, South Carolina, vein center are minimally invasive, take an hour or less to complete, are performed under local anesthetics, and allow patients to return to normal activities immediately with few restrictions.

In addition to great vein care, our South Carolina vein clinic patients have various interesting things to do and see while in town. The capital of the state, Columbia, is the second-largest city in South Carolina. It is the proud home of the University of South Carolina, the state's flagship public university.

Services at Center for Vein Restoration, Columbia

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 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.
