Annual Meeting

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

  1. to establish standards of proficiency
    in the recognition and care of vascular disease;
  2. to promote adherence by the membership to these standards;
  3. to enhance and disseminate education in vascular disease
    at the resident, post graduate and lay levels; and
  4. 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 Beverly Lynch and Lauren Myers. It provides timely monthly information to all members through the VSNJ Monthly 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).

Message from the President

Honesto Poblete, MD, President

To know what has to be done, then do it, comprises the whole philosophy of practical life.
- Sir William Osler

As a new year begins for the VSNJ council I want to recognize the great progress of the past year guided by Kurt Wengerter, MD as the Past President. By updating the newsletter and website he positioned the society for better communication and dissemination of information vital to the membership. Now with the most successful sponsorship drive for our Spring meeting we have strengthened our resources to advance the goals of the society.

The overarching goals of our society 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.
  • While the goals are well defined the best methods to reach these goals are more difficult to discern and ever changing. And, as true as the above quote is the devil remains in the details. As the year progresses the board will continue to define and implement these methods. I invite and implore all the members to aid us in achieving our goals.

    I hope to increase the ease of communication among all our members. I look forward to working together with all the members for our future success.

    Honesto "Sto" Poblete, MD, President
