Our pediatric Vascular Anomalies Program in Florida provides advanced diagnostics and treatment for children from all over the world with a wide range of vascular anomalies (blood vessels that have developed abnormally), including hemangiomas and arteriovenous malformations. This coordinated, statewide multidisciplinary program is managed by Nemours experts who are at the forefront in providing the latest in medical, interventional (minimally invasive radiology) and surgical therapies. Our goals are to restore functionality and cure disease related to vascular malformations in children.
As part of the Nemours Children’s Health System — a pediatric network that spans across Florida, Delaware and Greater Philadelphia — we reach across borders to advance the research and science of these rare diseases so that children around globe can get the best care possible, even those who never enter our doors.
In Central Florida, the Vascular Anomalies Program is led by experts in interventional radiology at Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando. Our interventional radiologists are the only dual-trained pediatric diagnostic and interventional radiologists in the region, which means they’re experts at treating hemangiomas and other vascular malformations in children using advanced, minimally invasive, image-guided procedures that do not require open incisions. Here, specialists from many medical disciplines work closely to customize a treatment plan for your child’s every need — physically, socially and emotionally.
In addition to board-certified pediatric interventional radiologists, members of your child’s multidisciplinary vascular malformation care team may include otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat, or "ENT" specialists and surgeons), plastic surgeons, neurosurgeons and hematologists/oncologists. Along with highly qualified nurses, care coordinators and social workers, the team meets regularly to review every diagnosis and track treatment progress. In complex cases, we also teleconference and collaborate with hemangioma and other vascular anomaly experts across the Nemours Children’s Health System.
