About Center for Vein Restoration in Niles, Illinois
Center for Vein Restoration (CVR) is proud to serve patients at our Niles vein clinic. The physicians and staff at CVR Niles 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 Niles, Illinois
Niles is a village in Cook County, Illinois, located about 15 miles from Chicago, making it a quick 25-minute drive to the Windy City. With its mixed urban and suburban feel, Niles offers a variety of things to do and see. For example, the Leaning Tower of Niles is a Chicago area landmark located near the North Branch of the Chicago River. The half-size replica of the Leaning Tower of Pisa was built in 1934 by a local industrialist as part of a recreation park for employees and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Center for Vein Restoration’s vein center in Niles is one of five CVR vein clinics in Illinois. We are proud to serve the Chicagoland community, providing state-of-the-art vein care in a caring, affordable manner.
A certified vein care physician supervises each Center for Vein Restoration vein clinic. Our vein doctors are on the cutting edge of vascular medicine. They have shared their knowledge and expertise in many respected medical publications, including the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of Vascular Surgery, and Phlebology.
Our minimally invasive vein treatments are performed as an outpatient in our in-offices, which are accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission. One of the venous disease treatments we provide is sclerotherapy. This proven method for eliminating the symptoms of varicose veins and spider veins uses a safe solution to seal the damaged vein. The vein is eventually absorbed by the body and fades.
Our staff will ensure your safety and comfort from the day of your first consultation and throughout your recovery. Center for Vein Restoration prides itself on excellent customer service and a compassionate bedside manner.

Services at Center for Vein Restoration, Niles
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.
