    Treatments

    At the Vein Institute of New Jersey, we take a comprehensive approach to treating your vein problems.

    After obtaining a history and performing a physical exam in a comfortable, patient-friendly environment, you will undergo a noninvasive doppler and ultrasound exam at our prestigious, ICAVL accredited vascular lab to determine the areas of your venous problems (dilated veins, faulty valves, and areas of clot).

    Based on the information collected, a custom, individualized treatment plan will be formulated by your doctor and discussed with you in detail. Veins that are cosmetically unappealing, or cause pain or other symptoms are prime candidates for treatment.

    Our faculty of specialists use the industry’s latest technologies to perform minimally invasive procedures to treat venous issues. These procedures include:

    Arterial Disease (PAD)

    • Aneurysms
      • Thoracic, Abdominal Aorta,Peripheral

    I have been coming to The Cardiovascular Care Group fro nearly two decades! Initially with my Dad who had terrible PAD and they were able to save his legs for nearly 12 years. I come here now to have my varicose veins removed. They have been as great for me as they were for my Dad! The staff is wonderful—always caring and courteous and the really do care about me!

    A.

    I started with The Cardiovascular Care Group long ago when I wanted my legs to simply look better! Now, I need the to help improve the circulation to my kidneys. The entire group is wonderful as is the staff.

    J.

    My primary care physician referred me to Dr. P initially. I wanted to go to NYC so I went to the city first. I came to The Cardiovascular Care Group for a second opinion and have never left nor regretted it! My aneurysm was fixed without any problems, I was home in less than 24 hours and the doctors and Physician Assistants are not only skilled but really nice. The office staff went out of their way to make certain everything was perfect BEFORE I went to the hospital!

    L.

    I had a TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack Ed.) and was really scared! I researched all of the Vascular Surgeons in New Jersey and decided on Dr.S. I am so glad I did. When I called for an appointment the person heard how was and made sure I got in immediately. The procedure on my carotid artery (angioplasty and stent) was performed that week by Dr. K. Everything went great and the team was amazing! At a time when medicine is getting more scary, The Cardiovascular Care Group is a very welcome change!

    R.

    My Dad had gangrene of the foot. Our surgeon told us he needed an amputation of the entire leg! I was told to see Dr. K. for a second opinion. He saw us, did some simple ultrasound tests in his office and the following week he was able to fix the circulation problems in Dad’s leg. It is now three years later and Dad is running after my children every Tuesday when I go to work!
