The Division of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery provides comprehensive and multidisciplinary approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the vascular system. Particular expertise in minimally invasive reconstructive procedures for arterial insufficiency of the extremities, endovascular treatment of Thoracic and Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, and comprehensive surgical and interventional treatment of carotid arterial disease for the prevention of stroke is available.

Other areas of interest include the evaluation and treatment of upper extremity vascular disorders, diabetic foot problems, hemodialysis access, renovascular hypertension, mesenteric insufficiency, chronic venous diseases and deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and injuries related to or derived from trauma. All University Hospital vascular surgeons are certified by the American Board of Surgery and all have earned added qualifications in vascular surgery. Our vascular laboratory offers a full spectrum of noninvasive blood flow analyses for the diagnosis of arterial and venous peripheral vascular disease.

In addition to clinical work, the vascular surgeons are engaged in research activities and recently completed national, prospective Carotid Revascularization Endarterectomy versus Stenting Trial (CREST). This study was developed and based at New Jersey Medical School and compared the two therapies for treating carotid artery stenosis to prevent recurrent strokes.
