Vascular Anomalies in Children

Lots of babies are born with birthmarks; some go away on their own without causing problems, but others won’t and can cause problems. A vascular anomaly is a kind of birthmark. They can be different sizes, so they may or may not be noticeable at birth. A vascular anomaly is a defect in blood vessels that may affect each part of the vasculature (capillaries, arteries, veins, lymphatics or a combination of these).  

The vascular anomalies clinic offers the expertise of a multidisciplinary team to take away your stress and help with diagnosis and the right treatment for your child, if needed. Our team helps babies, kids and young adults through 25 years of age.
