conditions and Services


Newark Vein and Vascular Center was created to provide a much-needed service to individuals throughout the metropolitan areas of East Orange and Newark, New Jersey — high-quality, patient-focused care for skin and vein conditions. Located in the urban community of Newark, it continues to be one of the few healthcare providers in the region to deliver preventative care and effective treatment in these specialty health areas.

Meet The Team

The interdisciplinary team at Newark Vein and Vascular Center is overseen by Medical Director and board-certified vascular surgeon, Dr. Gordon D. Lutchman, MD, DABVLM, FACS. His career spans over 40 years, and he is skilled in treating a full range of vein conditions, from spider veins and swollen legs to varicose veins and venous ulcers.

Dr. Lutchman and a talented team of specialists excel at delivering patients successful treatments and positive outcomes. Since venous diseases manifest differently in each patient, these providers offer comprehensive preventative vein screenings and evaluations to take a personalized approach to care.
They ask patients about their medical history to better understand their unique needs, make more accurate diagnoses, and select the proper treatment.

Collectively, the team has over 30 years of experience delivering compassionate and patient-centered care for vein and skin concerns. This level of expertise earned Newark Vein and Vascular Center official recognition from the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission and allowed it to become one of the first nationally-recognized vein centers in Newark, NJ.
Vital Access to High-Quality Services
At Newark Vein and Vascular Center, physicians use the latest methods and technology for treatment. When patients come in for care, they can expect a clean and welcoming environment and rest assured knowing they are in the hands of highly experienced professionals.

These providers perform a host of services designed to identify, treat, and prevent skin and vein diseases. A common diagnostic tool for these health issues is a venous ultrasound study. A registered vascular technician uses a detailed Doppler ultrasound to detect features in the veins that require treatment, such as unusual twisting or deep vein thrombosis. This test is fundamental in helping the provider develop the best treatment plan.

The treatment the physician will recommend depends on the patient’s specific condition. For instance, a patient may undergo endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) if they have large veins susceptible to becoming varicose. This simple procedure may also prevent the complications of varicose veins, such as blood clots and skin ulcers.

Another treatment option is sclerotherapy for large veins. This foam injection treatment is inserted directly into the affected area to stimulate blood flow to the veins. Similarly, sclerotherapy with asclera treats spider veins and small varicose veins while reducing the discomfort that comes from the procedure.

Regardless of the type of treatment, individuals can trust that the specialists at Newark Vein and Vascular Center will proceed with tenderness. These providers take time to understand how their patients feel about diagnoses, treatments, and preventative solutions, focusing on making them as comfortable as possible. Additionally, to serve a greater number of people in urban communities, the providers accept most forms of health insurance.
