The Vascular Society of New Jersey is the state's preeminent professional association for vascular surgeons.
The objectives of the VSNJ are:


  • to establish standards of proficiency in the recognition and care of vascular disease;

  • to promote adherence by the membership to these standards;

  • to enhance and disseminate education in vascular disease at the resident, post graduate and lay levels; and

  • to encourage research in the etiology and modalities of treatment of vascular disease.


The active membership consists of Board certified surgeons in the area who are currently practicing vascular surgery. Qualification for admission to the Society is dependent upon training, demonstrated skills, and adherence to ethical and moral standards as exemplified by members of the national vascular societies—International Cardiovascular Society (ICVS) and/or Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS). There are five categories of membership: Active, Senior, Honorary, Candidate and Associate.


VSNJ is front and center on significant legislative and regulatory issues, including licensure of vascular techs, licensure of ambulatory surgery centers, PIP and out of network reimbursement, and health insurance policy. VSNJ has the benefit of strong management and lobbying by the Advocacy and Management Group, led by Rachel Holland. It provides timely quarterly information to all members through the VSNJ Quarterly Report, and the VSNJ website.


VSNJ also provides outstanding education, with nationally-recognized speakers at the Annual Spring meeting (traditionally in March), and the Fall membership meeting (October/November).

Dear Friends and Fellow Society Members,


I am honored and humbled to have been elected as the 42nd President of the Vascular Society of New Jersey. I would like to thank the members of the Board and past presidents for their ongoing help and guidance in advancing the mission of our Society.  We strive to provide the finest relevant educational conferences, political awareness and advocacy for our Society and a platform to build camaraderie among our membership.  

Please feel free to reach out to me or the leadership committee if you have any concerns or thoughts about how we can enhance the value of the Society.  Your input is crucial to improving our effectiveness as Society and to provide the most meaningful experience for our members.  I look forward to working with you over the next two years.


Best Regards,

The Vascular Society of NJ abhors the lack of respect for the lives of all members of society no matter what their race, creed or orientation as we work every day to treat all of our patients with equality and dignity.  We condemn the medical injustices faced by people of color and stand to gain an understanding of how we can help bridge that gap in order for all who need help to have the opportunity to receive it.  We firmly believe there is no place in our world for racism, intolerance and discrimination.


Thank you to our

2024 Annual Spring Meeting Sponsors!
