A board certified and highly respected cardiologist for over 20 years, Dr. Cohen has been a pioneer in the use of a wide variety of new catheter-based therapies for vascular diseases. Circulatory Care of New Jersey, is fundamentally unique in that it works exclusively with both veins and arteries but does so completely non-surgically.
"We focus on a variety of symptoms patients experience as a result of varicose veins: pain, discomfort, burning, swelling, ruptured veins or ulcers," says Dr. Cohen. "These are people who've had problems for years but have never had their veins worked on. With these methods patients can walk in and walk out in a matter of an hour."
Dr. Cohen and his vascular technologists employ an extremely detailed high-tech ultra-sound mapping system to try to map out your veins. Once they find a vein that's a problem, the idea is to close them either through lasers, injections and in some cases phlebectomy.
On the arterial side of the spectrum many patients who suffer from a lot of symptoms, discomfort and risk are not given bypass surgery. Current surgical techniques simply don't serve this population. These new technologies employed offer a great new option for a lot of patients.
"People who can only walk maybe four blocks see a surgeon and the
surgeon says, 'Keep walking, stop smoking, lose weight, come see me in a
year.' But these patients are not happy. So they come see me and they say,
'I've seen surgeons and they don't think I'm sick enough to get bypassed,
but I want to walk my dog, play 18 holes of golf,' and I can fix them in an
hour in an outpatient pr
