February 26, 2016
The New Jersey Vein and Arterial Institute Offers Groundbreaking Vascular Surgery Solutions
TOMS RIVER, NJ – Ocean County Foot and Ankle Surgical Associates, P.C., a well-known Ocean County based Podiatric office with three branch offices in Toms River, Forked River and Whiting, is now accepting patients at their newest location, a vascular suite in Toms River. Operating as NJ VAIN, or the New Jersey Vein and Arterial Institute, this new medical suite offers solutions to patients who suffer from peripheral artery disease (PAD) which causes poor circulation and blockages in the legs and feet.
The new 3,460 square foot state-of-the-art facility is specifically tailored for efficiency and patient care, ease of access and patient comfort. Patients are welcomed into a relaxing atmosphere where comfort and safety is of the utmost importance. The lower extremity bypass surgery procedure can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours and patients are able to leave the premise after a 90 minute recovery period.
“We’re extremely excited to offer this service to residents of Ocean and Monmouth Counties,” said Dr. Russell D. Petranto, Managing Partner of Ocean County Foot and Ankle Surgical Associates, P.C.. “There is a large volume of patients with this condition in the area and we’re giving them an opportunity to get the treatment that they need right here at our office, saving them from a trip to the hospital, or worse, down the road, an amputation.”
Patients suffering from peripheral artery disease (PAD) can exhibit symptoms that range from minor discomfort to extreme pain, the inability to walk and in the most advanced cases, the serious risk of limb loss due to lack of blood flow.
The minimally invasive treatments done at NJ VAIN at Ocean County Foot and Ankle Surgical Associates P.C. consist of either a quick removal of plaque or calcified material in the artery, or in more severe cases the use of angioplasty or stenting. Ocean County Foot and Ankle Surgical Associates P.C. has already treated over 50 cases at NJ VAIN since it’s soft opening in January. “Here at OCFA it’s our mission to stay on the cutting edge of medical advances,” said Dr. Petranto. “Our innovative offerings help us to improve the quality of life of our patients to the best of our abilities.”
