SPRINGFIELD — Advanced Vein Care Center (AVCC) is now part of Center for Vein Restoration (CVR), the largest physician-led vein center in the U.S., with more than 100 locations in 22 states and Washington, D.C.
Dr. K. Francis Lee, founder and medical director of AVCC, will continue as the lead physician, seeing patients full-time. The practitioners and office staff at AVCC will also remain at the Springfield location.
“I am excited about this opportunity to grow the practice and ensure its longevity,” Lee said. “I founded AVCC in 2006 in response to the increasing demand for advanced treatments for venous insufficiency, varicose veins, and other vein conditions. We have helped thousands of patients since that time with great success. CVR’s expertise and resources will allow us to treat even more patients.”
Center for Vein Restoration, established in 2007 by world-renowned cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon Dr. Sanjiv Lakhanpal, provides expert venous healthcare. Just as Lakhanpal envisioned, CVR offers safe, personalized, and positive treatment to people suffering from symptoms of venous insufficiency.
AVCC is the first CVR practice in Western Mass. and its third in the Commonwealth, with additional locations in Woburn and Framingham. CVR centers are also located in nearby Enfield, South Windsor, Bloomfield, and Glastonbury, Conn.
“Our partnership with Advanced Vein Care Center and Dr. Lee marks our expansion into Western Massachusetts,” Lakhanpal said. “Dr. Lee’s depth of expertise and history of clinical excellence and exceptional patient care are a perfect fit for the patient-centered, state-of-the-art vascular care we pride ourselves on. Alliances like this help us fulfill our commitment to caring for patients with venous disorders throughout the United States.”
