WASHINGTON, Jan. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Center for Vein Restoration (CVR), the nation's largest physician-lead
This coverage comes at an important time—over 40 million Americans suffer from varicose veins or spider veins, symptoms of an often undiagnosed disorder known as venous insufficiency, or vein disease. Vein disease may initially present as moderate leg pain, or just a cosmetic concern, but it can progress into skin discoloration, mobility issues, a heightened risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), lymphedema or venous ulcers, if left untreated.
"We can easily stop the progression of the disease, patients just need to know when to come see us," says Dr. Eddie Fernandez, a physician and Regional Medical Director for Maryland South with CVR. Dr. Fernandez, who has practices in Rockville and Silver Spring, Maryland, is trained in all modern vein treatment modalities, which can be performed in-office, painlessly and without the use of general anesthesia. Patients return to normal activity immediately following treatment.
CVR is headquartered in Greenbelt, Maryland and has 31 locations in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. alone. "The communities in the DMV have a special place in the history of CVR," says CEO and President Dr. Sanjiv Lakhanpal. "Our first procedure as a company was performed right here in 2007, and since then our organization has become synonymous with clinical excellence and superior patient care."
The Center for Vein Restoration now has over 70 centers in 13 states throughout the U.S. and has recently expanded to the Arizona and Illinois markets to meet the demand for vein care specialists.

ABOUT VENOUS INSUFFICIENCY
Venous insufficiency, the cause of significant suffering due to the sequelae of venous hypertension, most commonly arises as achy, tired and heavy legs. It may or may not be associated with varicose veins, spider veins or skin changes including venous ulcerations and indiscriminately affects between 30–40 million Americans. Numerous factors including age, weight, prolonged sitting or standing, genetics or a history of DVT (blood clots) can increase the risk of developing this common and often underdiagnosed disorder. Treatment options have evolved to an array of minimally invasive procedures in an office setting.
