Meet the Vascular Anomalies Team

The Vascular Anomalies Center at Arkansas Children's is staffed by a closely integrated multidisciplinary team of physician specialists and related support staff representing the disciplines of Hematology/Oncology, Craniofacial Orthodontics, Pediatric Surgery, Research, Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery, Pathology, Radiology, Dermatology, Pediatrics, and Orthopedic Surgery. Clinical team members work together to provide the needed care appropriate for each patient.

The academic focus of Arkansas Children's is supported by vascular anomalies team members at many levels, from the teaching of medical students and residents about vascular anomalies and other subjects in our various disciplines to specialized training of practicing physicians from all over the United States and abroad regarding technical aspects of vascular anomaly diagnosis and treatment.

Research is also an important element of our program, again utilizing the strength of the multidisciplinary team approach. With the goal of not only continually advancing treatment options, but also discovering fundamental mechanisms of the underlying disease processes, team members have made a number of significant advances in the field.
