About Center for Vein Restoration in Fairbanks, Alaska
Center for Vein Restoration (CVR) is proud to serve patients at our Fairbanks vein clinic. The physicians and staff CVR Fairbanks have decades of collective experience treating symptoms of vein diseases such as varicose veins, spider veins, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and other vein conditions related to chronic venous insufficiency (vein disease).
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. Commitment to patient care goes beyond physician credentials, however. Our entire team works together to provide our patients with a level of comfort and understanding.
Our Vein Clinic in Fairbanks, Alaska
Fairbanks, Alaska, is located approximately 360 miles north of Anchorage and 120 miles south of the Arctic Circle and is famous for long summer days where the sun never seems to set and long dark days where the sun never seems to appear. While it's one of the coldest cities in the United States, there is no shortage of things to do when visiting Fairbanks. The Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum is TripAdvisor's #1-rated attraction in Fairbanks and boasts much more than just antique cars.
When visiting CVR's Fairbanks vein clinic, explore Chena River State Recreation Area, a 254,080-acre state preserve located just east of Fairbanks. It features campgrounds, hiking, fishing, ATV, snowmachine, and sled dog trails. After a busy day recreating, relax at Chena Hot Springs Resort, offering visitors a 156° geothermal hot springs to soak their cares away.
Meet Dr. Liao
Peter Liao, MD, Ph.D., is the lead physician at CVR's Fairbanks vein clinic. He has over two decades of experience helping patients live free of the discomfort of vein disease and teaches other physicians to do the same. He completed a fellowship in surgical endoscopy and advanced laparoscopy and later returned as faculty to teach residents general surgery, flexible endoscopy, and advanced laparoscopy.
After serving as the director of a minimally invasive bariatric program, Dr. Liao turned his focus to the minimally invasive treatment of chronic venous insufficiency (vein disease).
Meet Cynthia Smith
Cynthia "CJ" Smith, PA-C is devoted to educating her patients about chronic venous insufficiency, applying her advanced education and training to help her patients overcome the distressing symptoms of vein disease.

Services at Center for Vein Restoration, Fairbanks
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 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 in-office treatment requires only local anesthetics, and recovery and symptom relief are fast, and there is little to no scarring.
