Vein Treatment and Access Care

At Vein Treatment and Access Care, you will be consulting with board certified vascular surgeons from Highland Park Surgical Associates. These people are not only experts in performing the multiple types venous corrective procedures, but also in providing the lasting care that may be required. The degree to which we may recommend (or not recommend) a procedure is guided by the severity of the situation and the patient’s overall health. In fact, the many of our patients do not require any type of procedure, only the correct conservative care and continued monitoring. Varicose veins alone, in the absence of complications, demand nothing more than a pair of good compression stockings and the willingness to use them regularly. The decision to proceed further should be based on the presence of persistent symptoms. This decision should be patient-driven and doctor-guided, not doctor-driven. Remember this, whether you choose to work with us or any other group. On the other hand, once a patient manifests skin damage, our focus shifts to wound healing and our level of fervor in recommending a specific therapy increases. We do this in order to avoid the complications and health risks of a chronic wound, the time lost from work and other meaningful activities, and the risk of infection. Our reputation is for providing the most up-to-date care in the most appropriate manner for each patient we encounter. We do not strive to perform the greatest number of procedures in central Jersey. We make sure you understand the expected benefits, alternatives, and risks to any intervention we undertake and encourage you to ask questions if you feel anything is left unclear or unanswered. Your health, safety, and comfort are always our first and foremost priorities; and this we will never compromise. Please understand that if we feel you are not an appropriate candidate for a certain procedure, we won’t do it, even if it means losing your business to dr. X’s vein shop. Although we make our living treating varicose veins, it might surprise you to know that some of our most gratifying results have occurred after providing charity care to indigent patients with neglected and advanced venous disease. You can always count on our honest opinion and know that we will treat you as we would our own family member. We look forward to knowing you.

Hemodialysis Access

Many patients may require hemodialysis to remove fluid and toxins from the body which accumulate when the kidneys are not functioning normally. In order for this to be performed we must be able to deliver a continuous flow of blood from the patient to the dialysis machine and back to the patient during a dialysis treatment. In general, patients undergo hemodialysis three times per week. The most efficient and safest way of providing blood flow is by creating an access in the arm through a surgical procedure. The two major types of these are the arteriovenous fistula (AV fistula) and the AV graft.

Reflux Care


Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease or GERD affects nearly 1 in 3 people throughout their lifetime. The majority of people suffering from GERD manage this disease ineffectively with medications like proton pump inhibitors. Increasingly these medications are being found to have drastic side-effects and may even stop working. Along with your gastroenterologist, primary care or ENT physician we work closely to coordinating the care of patients suffering from GERD. In some circumstances, a large hiatal hernia is associated with GERD. At Highland Park Surgical Associates we have the ability to both repair these hernias and address your reflux symptoms.
