Message from the Chief

Saum Rahimi, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Chief, Division of Vascular Surgery

I am honored and proud to lead this Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy into the future. Our team is comprised of outstanding clinical faculty, staff and research assistants. Norman Rosenberg, MD, one of the pioneers in Vascular Surgery started this Division and we have evolved into one of the leading vascular centers in the country. Our mission, shared with the entirety of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, is to provide excellence in clinical care first and foremost. Our patient centered approach is our core value and what builds from that is our ability to provide outstanding education, research, and community service.

Our center of excellence offers comprehensive, state of the art services for the treatment of all vascular disease processes. The large clinical volume we have has allowed us to expand our knowledge and expertise, streamline medical and surgical care, and provide our community with the best patient experience possible. Our goal is to provide personalized, efficient, quality medical and surgical care in an academic setting.

As an academic center, we are constantly reviewing our results, researching and developing new methods of treatment, participating in clinical trials for new medical devices, and advancing our approach to patient care as technology improves. We appreciate and look forward to the opportunity to evaluate and treat our patients. It is truly a privilege for us to be able to care for your family and loved ones.
