Children are born with tens of thousands of miles of blood vessels. Blood vessels include veins, capillaries, arteries and lymphatic vessels. When the blood vessels don’t develop the way they should, it’s called a “vascular anomaly” (also called a “vascular malformation”). Problems with blood vessels can involve more than one part of the body. That’s why at Nemours Children's we’ve put together a team with your child’s whole well-being in mind. We work closely together — and with you — to develop a treatment plan that cares for your child not just today, but as they grow.
At Nemours, we have special vascular anomaly expertise, leading and working with local, state and national vascular anomaly teams. We also have one of the largest pediatric interventional radiology program in the country. And some of our radiologists are among only a few hundred in the nation who are dual-fellowship-trained in both pediatric diagnostic and interventional radiology, or pediatric radiology and neuroradiology.
In addition, our nurse navigators, educators, social workers and Child Life specialists provide:
And, as a whole team, we work together to advance the research of vascular anomalies. We want to help kids around the globe get the best possible care — even those who never enter our doors.
