The Vein Center for Women was started as a part of Dr. Surya's practice in 2003, and since then has grown into a center that has provided treatment for many patients who come from Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, and from other places in NJ. Most patients refer their friends, local physicians refer patients and patients search online and come in to see us. We have maintained a 5-star rating all these years without fail by providing good service to all our patients. Close to 98% of new patients seen in the center, decide to stay and complete treatment with us and are happy with their results and experience.

The mission statement of the vein center is:

Knowledge + Women's Health

The Vein Center for Women was started by combining the knowledge in venous diseases and a personal interest in women’s health.

Beauty inside out

As we believe that if ones inner health is good, the beauty would naturally be seen and that is exactly what we try to treat each patient with.

Total Health

The center follows a protocol in evaluating its patients as a whole, giving them information, education and assistance in achieving “Total health”.

Our treatment modalities include medical, supportive, conservative and surgical treatment of venous diseases as and when needed. Both our newer and traditional treatments include state-of-the-art Endo-venous Closure Treatment, Ultrasound-guided Sclerotherapy, Stabphlebectomy; all tailored to each patient's needs.
