Vascular Anomalies

Diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of vascular anomalies can be complex. These conditions often require the expertise of several types of pediatric specialists. That’s why we created the Vascular Anomalies Program — an integrated, multidisciplinary approach offering coordinated, compassionate care for infants, children and adolescents. 

Conditions We Treat

One in 10 children in this country is born with a vascular anomaly — a birthmark or a growth made up of blood vessels (arteries, veins, capillaries and/or lymphatic vessels). Many of these growths require medical therapy, laser treatment and/or surgery.

Why Choose Our Vascular Anomalies Program

At the UChicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital, an integrated multidisciplinary team of experts works together to evaluate patients and coordinate treatments for vascular anomalies.
