Center for Vein Restoration (CVR) is America’s largest physician-led, patient-centric vein center. Established in 2007, world-renowned and respected cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon Sanjiv Lakhanpal, MD, FACS, embarked on creating a venous health care provider that radically improved lives. He envisioned providing safe, personalized, and positive treatment for a woefully underserved population suffering from venous insufficiency.


Today, Dr. Lakhanpal is the President & CEO of Center for Vein Restoration. He is a stalwart advocate for and contributor to advancements in the care of patients suffering from chronic venous disorders. CVR has grown into the nation’s leader in varicose and spider vein care, offering a variety of nearly pain-free solutions to eliminate unsightly and uncomfortable veins.


Beginning with Dr. Lakhanpal caring for approximately 100 patients out of a single clinic in the Washington, DC area, CVR has expanded to 100+ locations (and growing), with 80+ board-certified physicians in twenty-two states impacting the lives of over 200,000 patients annually.


CVR offers comprehensive treatment plans customized to each patient’s clinical and financial needs. Our physicians are trained using state-of-the-art equipment to perform the most modern vein closure modalities.

CVR’s Venous and Lymphatic Medicine Fellowship

Center for Vein Restoration was granted a Venous and Lymphatic Medicine Fellowship by the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine in 2017. The fellowship is a 12-month post-graduate medical education training program is designed to provide broad training in the diagnosis and management of patients suffering from chronic venous disorders.


Up to twelve fellows learn all aspects of non-invasive duplex scanning of the venous and arterial systems as well as diagnosis and management of superficial and deep venous disorders. Students leave with expertise in all methods for treating superficial venous insufficiency, including laser and radiofrequency endovenous ablations, non-thermal technologies such as mechanochemical ablations (Clarivein), cyanoacrylate (Venaseal), Polidocanol microfoam (Varithena), ambulatory micro-stab phlebectomy, ultrasound-guided foam, and cosmetic sclerotherapy.
