Saturated, monounsaturated and trans fats all occur naturally in food. To the naked eye, these fats all look the same. At room temperature, however, unsaturated fats are liquid (oil, for example), whereas saturated and trans fats are solid (butter, for example). Also, in the way that these fats affect the body, they could not be more different from one another.Read More
A Message from John DiAngelo
Inspira Vascular Institute Established to Expand Our Vascular Surgery Expertise & Advanced Technology Capabilities in Vineland and Mullica Hill
I am pleased to announce that this new program offers increased access to care for patients on dialysis and those with compromised circulation related to diabetes and smoking. We offer a full range of services from minimally invasive procedures done in the interventional radiology lab to advanced procedures in the operating room.

In June, Inspira Health welcomed Holly Graves, M.D., a board-certified vascular surgeon to the medical staff of Inspira Medical Center Vineland. Named a “Top Doctor in Vascular Surgery” by SJ Magazine in 2019, she specializes in the diagnosis and comprehensive management of vascular disorders including the arterial, venous, and lymphatic systems. Dr. Graves provides both surgical and minimally invasive treatment options for her patients, including reconstructive surgical and endovascular techniques.
After receiving her medical degree from Columbia University, she completed both her surgical residency and her fellowship training in vascular surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
Sanjay Kumar, M.D., completed both his general surgery residency and his vascular surgery fellowship training at Cooper University Hospital.
Nauveed Iqbal, M.D., a general and vascular surgeon, completed his residency and fellowship training at St. Francis Medical Center in Wilmington, Delaware.

Timothy S. Pilla, M.D., received his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College and completed his residency at Graduate Hospital in Philadelphia.
David Lynch, M.D., FACS, completed his residency at Graduate Hospital in Philadelphia and served as a surgeon in the U.S. Air Force.
The new technology at Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill includes the region’s first hybrid operating room.
The hybrid OR provides advanced imaging technology for vascular surgeries. Far superior to former imaging, the new technology enables the surgeons to perform minimally-invasive procedures and more intricate surgical procedures with the highest precision.
“Automation, imaging accuracy and software enhancements allow imaging of multiple parts of blood vessel anatomy with a single injection,“ explains Pilla. Patients undergoing procedures in the Hybrid OR benefit from this reduced contrast use and radiation exposure, making it less likely that a procedure-related complication will occur. On the high-touch side, the hybrid OR patient enjoys views of scenic landscapes on six large TV panels and soothing music for a more relaxed experience.
