About Center for Vein Restoration in Virginia Beach, Virginia

Center for Vein Restoration (CVR) is proud to serve patients at our Virginia Beach vein clinic. The physicians and staff at CVR Virginia Beach 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 Virginia Beach, Virginia

Center for Vein Restoration’s vein clinic in Virginia Beach is one of our two locations in Southern Virginia (the other being CVR's Suffolk, Virginia, vein care center). At these and all CVR vein centers, we offer an in-depth consultation with duplex ultrasound in order to “see” and access your veins.

If recommended, our vein doctor is an expert at treating unsightly painful symptoms of venous insufficiency using minimally invasive outpatient procedures. These procedures include sclerotherapy, laser ablation, radiofrequency ablation, or ambulatory phlebectomy VenaSeal, Varithena, and more.

Situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay, Virginia Beach offers countless opportunities for even the busiest beachgoers to soak up the sunshine. In addition to being an angler’s dream, the area is perfect for watersports like surfing, kayaking, parasailing, paddle boating, and jet skiing. Various boat tours are popular as well.

Take a leisurely stroll down the Virginia Beach Boardwalk, which spans three miles from Second Street to 40th Street and boasts scenic ocean views with every step of the way. You can even stop and enjoy a meal in front of the water at one of the boardwalk’s many restaurants.

Built in 1895, the Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum is nestled in the historic de Witt Cottage and offers guests the chance to learn about the “evolution of the art of decoy carving” as they navigate its interactive computer exhibits and original oil and watercolor paintings. Visitors will be dazzled by both craftsmanship and attention to detail as they observe expert carvers create incredible works of art before heading to the gift shop to select some stunning, hand-made souvenirs.

The boardwalk is also the proud home of the Virginia Beach Surf & Rescue Museum, less than five miles from our vein clinic. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the museum celebrates the area’s coastal regions through maritime-themed exhibits, allowing visitors to learn about the origins of the beachfront, the boardwalk, and the building itself. A new project in April 2024 explores the uncovering of several pieces of a shipwreck that washed up on the shore of Croatan Beach. The rudder ship’s rudder dates back to between 1860 and 1920, according to estimates from Virginia State Underwater Archaeologist Brendan Burke.

Meanwhile, the museum provides a strategically placed camera that allows viewers to check out the waves and beachfront from the comfort of their own homes before heading out to the shore.

About 10 miles from our clinic, you’ll find a true slice of history at the Cape Henry Lighthouse, constructed with the same type of Aquia sandstone as a large portion of Washington, D.C. The lighthouse was the first federally funded public works project of the newly formed United States government and guided travelers to safety for nearly a century. It’s now surrounded by the Joint Expeditionary Base Fort Story.

Just a bit further down the road from our Virginia Beach vein clinic, visitors can stop by the famed Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center, which offers one-of-a-kind opportunities to interact with wildlife in spectacular ways. Go on a guided tour of dolphins and sea turtles and watch from behind the scenes. At the same time, experts feed the rays and Komodo dragons and learn about the water quality process that enables the 50,000-gallon Chesapeake Bay aquarium exhibit that cycles 600 gallons of water each minute.

Those traveling with children are sure to enjoy Grommet Island Park, a 15,000-square-foot space boasting a fully accessible playground with a sensory board and other accommodations.

Anyone looking for even more outdoor adventure is sure to enjoy the wonders that await them at First Landing State Park. From hiking and biking to fishing, swimming, camping, and crabbing, Virginia’s most popular state park has 20 miles of trails and 1.5 miles of Chesapeake Bay beachfront. It’s described as “an oasis within urban Virginia Beach.”

Ultimately, Virginia Beach offers a pristine blend of coastal elegance, outdoor adventure, history, and relaxation, making it an ideal destination for travelers of all kinds.

Services at Center for Vein Restoration, Virginia Beach

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:

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 in-office treatment requires only local anesthetics and recovery and symptom relief are fast, and there is little to no scarring.
