Treatment for Vascular Tumor
Many infants and children are impacted by various forms of vascular tumors. While many congenital and other vascular tumors are benign, they can cause discomfort and deformity. From the common strawberry mark of an infantile hemangioma, to congenital hemangiomas that can cause bleeding disorders or organ damage, our experts at Vascular Birthmark Institute can offer accurate diagnosis and treatment options at our clinic in New York.
Treatment for vascular tumors varies based on the type of tumor and the impact it has on the child. Some vascular tumors or hemangiomas disappear on their own after several months or a few years. Others may need laser therapy, medication or surgical treatment to limit their appearance and impact on the body. Our team of vascular specialists at Vascular Birthmark Institute offer advanced options in medical care for our patients with different types of vascular tumors. We offer a personalized approach in creating treatment plans that address the patient’s and family’s concerns.
