It is estimated that varicose veins and venous disease are ten times more common than heart disease. However, this is not just a cosmetic issue. It can indicate an underlying vascular condition and should be evaluated in an accredited facility by a board-certified vascular surgeon. Board certification and accreditation are indications of quality care. 

Vascular surgeons are experts in the treatment of the vascular system and are fully trained not only in surgery,  but in the latest minimally invasive techniques. Experienced surgeons can customize treatments to each individual’s particular situation, whether minor or complex.

Dr. Jeffrey Gosin, of Shore Vascular and Vein Center in Somers Point, discusses treatment options and what you should be looking for in a vascular surgeon.
