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
CVR’s vein center in Portage is located in Kalamazoo County, the smaller of the two main cities included in the Kalamazoo-Portage metropolitan area. Because Portage shares a boundary with Kalamazoo, a city in southern Michigan, Dr. Ford, and her caring vein center staff welcome patients from both areas to treat vein conditions.
Considered one of the best places to live in Michigan, Portage offers residents a dense suburban feel and with plenty of things to do. For example, the Air Zoo Aerospace & Science Center is an aviation museum and indoor amusement park next to the Kalamazoo-Battle Creek International Airport in Portage.

Meet Dr. Ford
Adria L. Ford, DO, earned her medical degree at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in East Lansing, Michigan. She completed an internship and residency at Metro Health in Grand Rapids, Michigan, before dedicating her career to treating chronic venous insufficiency. She is pleased to treat vein disease using minimally invasive outpatient procedures that allow her patients to resume normal activity immediately, with few restrictions.
“I enjoy being able to educate and help people improve their quality of life though the treatment of venous insufficiency using a simple office-based procedure to do it. People experience relief from the throbbing, heaviness, and swelling, among other symptoms, that their varicose veins cause, and it also helps them feel better about the appearance of their legs. People are amazed by the ease of the procedure and how quickly they feel relief after suffering for years and years.”
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.
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:
Feelings of heaviness
These symptoms are often the result of venous insufficiency and are unlikely to heal on their own. This common vein condition is progressive and will likely worsen 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 outpatient vein treatments require only local anesthetics. Recovery and symptom relief are fast, and there is little to no scarring.
