The Center for Vascular Anomalies

The Center for Vascular Birthmarks offers the most comprehensive care for adults and children affected by vascular birthmarks or tumors.

Many babies are born with birthmarks. While 90 percent of these marks will disappear by the child’s first birthday, 10 percent of children have a significant birthmark that requires the treatment of a specialist. Our highly skilled staff members offer expert assistance to you and your family throughout the treatment process. As a rule the sooner a vascular birthmark is treated the easier it is to take care of and the better the overall cosmetic outcome, so do not wait. With most birthmarks treatment should begin in the first two to three months of life.
