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.

Why Choose Us

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:

  • Advocacy: helping you get the services you need at school and in the community
  • Care coordination: scheduling multiple appointments, tests, procedures and at-home care when and where you need it
  • Collaboration: helping you create a support system and connecting you with similar families
  • Communication: keeping your primary care and community providers informed
  • Encouragement and help to ease fears/concerns: offering medical play therapy and procedure/surgery demonstrations

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.
