Vascular Birthmark Institute
of New York
The Vascular Birthmark Institute of New York was founded by Dr. Milton Waner and Dr. Alejandro Berenstein.
Dr. Waner is an internationally recognized expert and a pioneer in the treatment of hemangiomas and vascular malformations. His colleague, Dr. Berenstein is a renowned endovascular surgeon who heads the Hyman-Newman Institute for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
For the past 20 years, Dr. Waner has restricted his practice to the treatment of hemangiomas and vascular malformations. He has accumulated a wealth of experience and we believe that he has performed more surgeries in this field than anyone else. Dr. Waner has developed a unique approach to children and adults with vascular lesions; he was the first to advocate for early intervention of infantile hemangiomas. The Vascular Birthmark Institute provides diagnosis and treatment for children and adults suffering from the following conditions:
- Vascular Tumors
- Infantile Hemangiomas (most common)
- Pyogenic granuloma
- RICH, NICH
- Kaposiform Hemangioendothelioma
- Other vascular tumors
- Vascular Malformations
- Osler-Weber-Rendu Syndrome (Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia)
- Other vascular Birthmarks
- Midline venular Malformation: aka ‘Stork bite’, Angel’s kiss
- Other congenital birthmarks
- Nevus (pigmented and nonpigmented)
- Congenital lipomatosis
- Neurofibromatosis, plexiform neurofibromas
The physicians at the Vascular Birthmark Institute of New York believe that effective treatment starts with an accurate diagnosis. Our doctors have earned a reputation as the go-to clinic for difficult cases, cases that have been misdiagnosed in the past and patients who have not been able to find an effective treatment for their condition.
Dr. Waner is considered a world authority in hemangiomas and vascular malformations and has remained at the forefront of his field for many years. If you or a loved one has been suffering from a hemangioma or malformation and you are looking for an experienced physician that can help, we believe that our doctors provide skill and experience for a favorable outcome.
Our mission is to continue to provide world-class care in the diagnosis, treatment, management, and research of all vascular birthmarks.
