About Center for Vein Restoration in Grand Rapids, Michigan

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

Located just one mile from Calvin University and a mile and a half from the Woodland Mall, CVR in Grand Rapids sits on the Grand River, east of Lake Michigan in Kent County. Popular water sports in this area include kayaking, canoeing, and paddle boarding.

The city’s vibrant arts scene is punctuated by ArtPrize, an annual and highly-anticipated 18-day event launched in 2009 that has evolved to showcase residents’ creativity through exhibits in galleries, storefronts, parks, museums, breweries, and various public spaces.

Art is also overflowing at the Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM), famous for its stunning architecture and expansive 125,000-square-foot exhibition space. Visitors will find themselves immersed in both horticulture and humanities at the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, which highlights greenery and the arts, serving as a staple of the Midwest since its formation in 1995.

From there, explore some more Grand Rapids history with a trip to the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum, less than 10 miles from our clinic. The museum, part of the Presidential Libraries system of the National Archives and Records Administration, draws artifacts from museums all over the country and allows visitors far and wide to submerge themselves in the past while learning about the life of 38th President Gerald Ford.

Grand Rapids is also known for its vast array of culinary indulgences. Its 80+ craft breweries, coupled with its countless farm-to-table eateries, helped it soar to earn the number eight spot on the Top 10 Underrated Foodie Cities in the U.S. True to its name, one of the fastest Grand Rapids restaurants to find its way to fame is Electric Cheetah, a scratch-made kitchen that launched its own brand of syrupy sweet root beer in 2017.

Visitors can get their fill of adventure by taking a day trip to one of the many Grand Rapids parks, which are ideal for true outdoor indulgence. Boasting 1,400 scenic acres and six miles of Grand River waterfront, Millennium Park extends into Grandville, Walker, and Wyoming, making it one of the nation’s largest urban parks. Visitors can sunbathe on its six-acre beach, enjoy time on the water with a canoe, kayak, or paddle boat rental, and explore just under 18 miles of picturesque hiking and biking trails.

Looking for more wildlife? Stop by the John Ball Zoo, about 10 miles from our Grand Rapids clinic. The John Ball Zoo offers guided tours of over 200 species of animals from more than 30 countries, as well as inside looks behind the scenes, shopping and dining opportunities, and an abundance of educational entertainment for visitors of all ages.

Meet Dr. Kelsey

Laura Kelsey, MD, is a vein specialist with vast experience in using minimally invasive procedures to help patients overcome symptoms of venous disease, including leg pain, swelling, cramping, varicose veins, restless legs, ulcers, and more. Having spent most of her life in Michigan, she is a proud, active member of the Grand Rapids community. She is the lead physician in CVR’s Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Muskegon, Michigan, vein clinic locations.

Dr. Kelsey speaks English and Spanish.

Dr. Kelsey earned her medical degree at Michigan State University’s College of Human Medicine and is board certified in General Surgery. She is a member of the American College of Physicians, American Vein & Lymphatic Society, American Venous Forum, American Medical Association, Michigan State Medical Society, and Kent County Medical Society.

“Although I enjoy all facets of my practice, my special interest outside the treatment of superficial venous disease continues to be the prevention of venous thromboembolic events (vein conditions where a blood clot forms in a vein). To that end, I have given many presentations helping to educate physicians, having helped establish protocols for rehabilitation hospitals and outpatient surgical centers to assess VTE risk, use appropriate prophylaxis, and treat deep vein thrombosis.” – Dr. Laura Kelsey

Services at Center for Vein Restoration, Grand Rapids

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.
