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.

Our Vein Clinic in Suffolk, Virginia
Center for Vein Restoration's Suffolk, Virginia, vein center is in an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia (meaning that it has no county). Suffolk is in the Hampton Roads metropolitan area in Southeast Virginia, which includes Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach.
A quiet rural town, Suffolk is a major peanut processing center and transportation hub. Visitors to Suffolk Seaboard Station Railroad Museum can go back in time into Suffolk’s rail past. Built in 1885, the Queen Anne-style building has remained unchanged over the years. Another historic landmark is Riddick's Folly House Museum. Built in 1837, “Riddick’s Folly,” as it’s known, has four floors, twenty-one rooms, and sixteen fireplaces. Penciled messages left on the walls by Union and Confederate soldiers are still legible today. It is open to the public.

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