About Center for Vein Restoration in Portage, Michigan

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

Patients who come to the Center in Portage are usually residents of Kalamazoo County or the surrounding counties. More than 46,000 people call Portage home, and others visit for medical treatment, to see the sights, or for other reasons. Because the city of Kalamazoo shares a boundary with Portage, there are also many people from that city who come for treatment from Dr. Kelsey and her dedicated staff. There is ample parking and the opportunity to get questions answered for patients who need or are considering vein treatment of any kind. That allows people who may not be sure what can be done for them to get the answers they want and need, so they can make informed medical decisions.

Meet Dr. Ford

Dr. Ford is a member of the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons and the American Osteopathic Association. She is Board Certified through the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery.

Dr. Ford served as a staff general surgeon at Kosciusko Community Hospital in Warsaw, Indiana since 2012, providing inpatient and outpatient care for patients with venous disease. She also previously served as Chief of Surgery with Three Rivers Health in Three Rivers, Michigan.

“As a general surgeon practicing in a community where people had no access to treatment of their varicose veins, I integrated treatment of venous insufficiency into my surgical practice. I became passionate about the treatment of venous disease as I realized how many people were under- diagnosed and under-treated and how rewarding it was to be able to help treat people with vein problems.”

Services at Center for Vein Restoration, Portage

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.
