What to Expect During Clinic

After registering, you will be asked to complete a medical history form and insurance paperwork. Don’t forget to bring your child’s insurance card.

When your child’s name is called, one of our team members will guide you into the clinic and take your child’s height and weight.

In the exam room, you will meet one of our specialty nurses who will ask you some questions about your child’s medical history.

Our physicians will visit with you and your child and examine the area with the vascular anomaly. Then they will determine if any tests are needed and work with you to develop a treatment plan based on your child’s individual needs.

Experts in Diagnosis and Treatment

The initial evaluation is one of the most important steps – not only does it increase the chances of a successful outcome, but it allows parents the opportunity to become informed and ask questions. We use state-of-the-art diagnostics and treatments, including medical, surgical and laser therapy.

  • Medical – medication can be an effective treatment option for many types of vascular anomalies. If found and diagnosed early, medication can help prevent the anomaly from growing.
  • Surgical – surgical removal of vascular anomalies performed by a multidisciplinary team of surgeons (pediatric, head and neck and plastic surgeons).
  • Laser – laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment for some types of anomalies such as hemangiomas and port-wine stains.  Lasers deliver pulses of light energy into the skin, destroying abnormal blood vessels.
