Dr. Wengerter's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Wengerter "Dr. Wengerter has practiced in the field of vascular surgery for over 20 years in both academic and private practice settings. He is a former Chief of Vascular Surgery at Albert Einstein College Hospital in NYC, and has served as Vascular Lab Director in three academic institutions. He trained and worked with Dr. Frank Veith, the renowned vascular surgeon at Montefiore Hospital in NYC where he served as an Associate Professor. He is an author on nearly 50 research papers and 25 textbook chapters and has presented over 30 invited lectures at local, national and international meetings. In 2013, he served as President of the Vascular Society of New Jersey and has actively participated in training over 20 Fellows in Vascular Surgery. He served as a volunteer Vascular Surgeon in 2011 at the Landstuhl US Army Hospital in Germany. Since completing his training, Dr. Wengerter has performed over 1000 reconstructive bypass and endovascular procedures to save circulation-compromised limbs. Much of his career has been devoted to this area of practice. Dr. Wengerter has led the advanced use of newer endovascular techniques of atherectomy and stent placement at Englewood to reduce the need for open surgery to save limbs. Dr. Wengerter has also been involved in the advancement of catheter-based endovascular techniques for aortic aneurysm repair and participated in the initial application of these procedures both at Montefiore and Englewood. He also performed the first purely percutaneous (through a skin puncture) repair of an aortic aneurysm at Englewood, avoiding skin incisions completely. Over the past 15 years Dr. Wengerter has worked closely with the renal service at Englewood Hospital to apply endovascular and surgical techniques to the care of vascular access for dialysis patients. After working at Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College Hospital for 9 years following his residency and fellowship at the same institutions, Dr. Wengerter was partner in Englewood Surgical Associates for 20 years, when it was purchased and dissolved by Englewood Hospital. After working for a short period as an employee of Englewood Hospital, in December 2016 he joined Rockland Thoracic and Vascular Associates, a group of thoracic and vascular surgeons located in Rockland County, NY, New York City (thoracic) and Bergen County, NJ. Dr. Wengerter graduated both undergraduate college and medical school with high honors (summa cum laude) and was admitted into the most prestigious academic honor societies at both levels: Phi Beta Kappa, and Alpha Omega Alpha. He has been recognized as a Top Doctor in both New York and New Jersey, most recently in 2016 as a "Top Doctor" in Bergen County. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wengerter "To provide our patients with the best vascular care possible. Vascular disease can be devestating, leading to stroke, limb loss, chronic wounds and death. Treatment of vascular disease requires a dedication to maintain up-to-date knowledge in a field that is constantly advancing. At the same time we must provide our patients with the attention they need to understand and handle the difficult issues and decisions that they face."
