The Vanguard Vascular and Vein Center is a center of excellence established for the evaluation and treatment of both venous and arterial disease. Our practice was established in 1993 and is the
premiere vascular surgical practice in the region. The Vanguard Vein Center is dedicated to providing world class care for both varicose and spider venous disorders. We have board certified
vascular surgeons who are recognized experts in venous and arterial care.
Our main office is located in the Medical Arts Pavilion on the campus of Southern Ocean County Hospital, in Manahawkin New Jersey. Our facility offers comprehensive evaluation and
treatment of your varicose and spider veins. Our facility combines the quality and safety of a hospital setting with the convenience, comfort and efficiency of an office setting. Your
entire care, from your first office visit, your diagnostic ultrasound, and then your procedure will be performed in our comfortable office setting.
We are committed to remain on the cutting edge of the rapidly growing technology in vascular care. This technology represents a paradigm shift from conventional surgical care. We
now view minimally invasive procedures as the main treatment option for the vast majority of vascular and venous patients. These non-surgical techniques now allow for more precise and less
painful treatment and at the same time allow for a rapid return to full activity. We encourage you to look through our web site to learn more about our staff and venous disease.
All of our doctors are board certified in Vascular and General Surgery. Each of our physicians has undergone intensive additional training in vascular surgery and interventional (minimally invasive)
vascular procedures. They are instrumental in the development and maintenance of a state-of-the-art vascular program. Our mission is to provide the latest technology and techniques in vascular care to achieve
the best possible outcome for our patients. We pride ourselves on our reputation as the regions' specialist in the comprehensive management and treatment for venous and arterial disease.
