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 North Florida, the Vascular Anomalies Program is led by the otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat, or "ENT") and hematology divisions at Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, Jacksonville. Working in close collaboration with Wolfson Children’s Hospital and University of Florida Health at Jacksonville, our Nemours Vascular Anomalies Program offers families renowned, board-certified Nemours pediatric experts from several medical specialties who come together to customize a treatment plan specific to your child’s every need — physically, socially and emotionally.
In addition to ENT specialists and surgeons, members of your child’s vascular anomaly care team may include interventional radiologists, plastic surgeons and other specialists as needed based on the location of the anomaly. 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 vascular anomaly experts across the Nemours Children’s Health System.
