The highly specialized services of the Vascular Centers are designed to
provide comprehensive care in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders
affecting the circulatory system. Advanced imaging techniques, including
physiological studies, MRI, CT, ultrasound and angiography are combined
to detect abnormalities in blood vessel walls and deficiencies in blood flow.
Located at four convenient sites in northern New Jersey, our state-of-the-art
vascular centers offer the most advanced non-invasive techniques for identifying
the structure of blood vessels and measuring blood flow. Our experienced
team of physicians and technologists can pinpoint the exact location of
blockages, measure the degree of artery or vein impairment, and evaluate
the condition of vessel walls. We provide the latest methods for diagnosing
and evaluating stroke, phlebitis, varicose veins, aneurysms, renal artery
stenosis and peripheral arterial disease (PAD).
Once identified, many vascular conditions can be treated with innovative
minimally invasive procedures that increase patient comfort and speed
recovery, while reducing the risk of complications. Treatments include
medical therapies and catheter-based interventions, as well as traditional
surgical procedures. Our renowned team of vascular specialists offers
patients access to cutting-edge treatment modalities that are not available
elsewhere. Participation in prestigious clinical research trials provides
patients with the next generation of stent-graft devices and other technological advances.
Education and Screening
The Vascular Center provides patient education and screening for people
at risk for developing vascular disease. Informative sessions conducted
by our professional staff outline the symptoms of vascular disease and
the latest trends in treatment. Our Vascular Centers provide education
and training for physicians in practice, as well as physicians-in-training
and technologists. Our residency and fellowship programs are accredited
by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and
offer highly specialized experience in the field of vascular surgery.
The Vascular Centers located at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, Saint
Barnabas Medical Center and the Barnabas Health Ambulatory Care Center
are certified by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission for Vascular
Testing and are staffed by registered vascular technologists.
