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.

Our Vein Clinic in Dothan, Alabama

Dothan is often referred to as the “Peanut Capital of the World” because of its massive peanut production. Each Fall, the city becomes home to the National Peanut Festival, where visitors pay tribute to local peanut farmers and observe the harvest season with live music, parades, mouthwatering festival fare, and various peanut-themed events — a deep and delicious part of Dothan history since 1938.

Even outside the harvest season, a trip to Alabama's eighth-largest city has plenty to see and do at any time of the year. The seat of Houston County, a slight portion of Dothan extends into Dale and Henry counties, making it a central hub for culture and creativity — but surprisingly, that wasn’t always the case. A 1986 magazine article shining a light on the city’s lack of museum offerings at the time served as the catalyst for the formation of the famous Wiregrass Museum of Art. Just three miles from our Dothan clinic, the WMA now comprises 18,000 square feet of gallery space, a conference center, a vast range of educational programs, rotating exhibits, and year-round events.

Just a few blocks away, visitors will find what used to be Dothan’s Greyhound bus station. It underwent a brilliant transformation in 2000 and is now home to the George Washington Carver Interpretive Museum. Described as the “pulse of creativity and culture in the heart of the city,” the gallery aims to educate and inspire all guests on some of the most important elements of African American history.

Get your fill of the great outdoors at one of Dothan’s series of trailheads known for their scenery and versatility. The Dothan Trails system comprises 387 acres, including six separate loops for hiking and biking with varying levels of difficulty. Guests can also enjoy opportunities for exploration and education as they navigate the trails designed by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA).

Need even more nature? Peruse peculiar plants and herbs at the Dothan Area Botanical Gardens, located just off U.S. Highway 431. Open to visitors year-round, the DABG showcases picturesque displays of natural entertainment through its many seasonal exhibits. With a children’s garden, a tropical house, and Wings of Wonder—a 1,800-square-foot screened butterfly structure launched in 2022 that houses more than 500 native butterflies—the DABG is the perfect place for visitors of all ages to explore and get inspired by nature.

No trip to the city is complete without a visit to the Dothan Opera House. Manifesting music since 1915, the building’s acoustics are unbeatable, prompting the Atlanta Symphony to select the facility as its recording destination. The Dothan Opera House is on the National Register of Historic Buildings and has been recently renovated, enhancing its ability to uplift the city’s vibrant arts scene through elaborately choreographed dance recitals, emotional choral ensembles, compelling community theater presentations, and other poignant passion projects. The space’s historical elegance is matched by its versatility: its upper-level conference room is used for business seminars and meetings.

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.
