Downers Grove is a village in DuPage County, Illinois. A vibrant suburban community, Downers Grove is 25 miles from Chicago’s Loop District. People in and around Chi-town don’t have to venture into the city to enjoy many cultural and leisure pursuits offered in Downers Grove. Downers Grove Park District is home to the Downers Grove Museum, which provides educational programming and leisure opportunities, including a picnic area, a wildflower pathway, and a 150-acre nature center at Lyman Woods.

As the nation’s leader in vein care, Center for Vein Restoration brings the knowledge and compassionate treatment that we are known for to Downers Grove. Each of our 100+ vein clinic locations is supervised by a physician certified in vascular medicine and supported by experienced, caring staff.
With a sole focus on vein health, Center for Vein Restoration offers many minimally invasive surgical procedures to eliminate the discomfort and unsightly appearance of varicose veins and spider veins. Proven techniques such as sclerotherapy, laser ablation, and radiofrequency ablation use a safe, proven medicine or thermal heat to eliminate malfunctioning varicose veins. Uncomfortable varicose and spider veins eventually fade along with the discomfort. Ambulatory phlebotomy removes varicose veins through two tiny incisions.

Services at Center for Vein Restoration, Downers Grove
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 outpatient vein treatments require only local anesthetics. Recovery and symptom relief are fast, and there is little to no scarring.
