Vascular Surgery

The Vascular Surgery program at Rutgers Health, including the New Jersey Vascular Center, provides treatment for vascular conditions ranging from medical therapy to open vascular surgery. As a leading vascular practice in New Jersey, we specialize in using leading-edge technologies for minimally invasive endovascular procedures.

The Vascular Center performs minimally invasive and traditional surgery with the most up-to-date equipment for the following conditions:

  • Aortic aneurysms

Our center offers many treatments and services to meet the needs of people facing vascular conditions. This includes:

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair using:
    • Endovascular stent graft repair
  • Carotid artery repair
    • Carotid endarterectomy

    • Angioplasty
    • Aneurysm repair
    • Artery bypass
    • Endarterectomy
    • Stenting
  • Thoracoabdominal aneurysm repair
    • Endovascular stent grafts
    • Open repair
  • Varicose veins
    • Endovenous radiofrequency saphenous ablation
    • Microphlebectomy
    • Sclerotherapy
    • Varicose vein removal/treatment

We also conduct evaluations of the arterial system of the lower and upper extremities using the duplex ultrasound, Doppler, and pulse volume recording tests to identify disease symptoms.

A unique characteristic of the Vascular Center is that we have access to our own vascular laboratory. Our lab is one of the premier noninvasive vascular diagnostic testing facilities in New Jersey and it has accreditation from the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission, an organization that monitors and certifies tests, facilities, and equipment.

Physicians who serve our program are on the faculty of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, a part of Rutgers University, one of the top research institutions in America. Our doctors are active in research and teach about all aspects of vascular surgery. Each brings leading-edge knowledge from the classroom to the exam room.
