About Center for Vein Restoration, Dothan, Alabama
Our sole focus is on the best patient experience and clinical outcomes when treating vascular disease, starting with a thorough initial evaluation. One of our highly trained vascular technicians (VT) will perform an ultrasound of both legs to determine the extent of the problem. This ultrasound thoroughly examines the deep and superficial veins throughout each leg. The VT will note all issues within the venous system (the network of veins that delivers blood back to the heart).
Your vascular specialist will meet with you, examine your legs, present your scan findings, and review your treatment options. If your symptoms, physical exam, and ultrasound reveals that treatment is needed, a treatment plan is developed with you. Before you leave our clinic, you will understand your venous disease, have an opportunity to ask any questions, and know a path toward getting your legs feeling and looking great again.

Services at Center for Vein Restoration, Dothan, Alabama
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 disease
When the tiny valves in your leg veins fail to circulate blood back to the heart, the result can be leg pain, itching, swelling, cramping, varicose veins, spider veins, feelings of heaviness, skin discoloration, or ulcers that are difficult to heal. Known as venous insufficiency, the vein condition is progressive, meaning it will get worse without treatment.
If you have any one or more of these vein problems, our experienced vein specialists can help.
Vein treatment types
Thanks to medical advancements in treating venous disease, varicose and spider veins can be corrected using minimally invasive, office-based procedures. Your CVR doctor will recommend the treatment option(s) best for you based on your unique needs.
Treatments include (but are not limited to) direct injection of medicated microfoam into diseased veins called ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy, a proprietary medical adhesive that closes off varicose veins called VenaSeal, and heat treatment of affected veins via laser ablation or radiofrequency ablation, to name a few.
