(757) 668-8684

The Hemangiomas and Vascular Birthmarks  Program provides care for children with vascular anomalies from birth to age 21. 

Some of the conditions we treat include the following:

  • Hemangiomas
  • Port wine stains
  • Venous malformations
  • Lymphatic malformations ("cystic hygromas")
  • Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs)

What work-up is needed prior to the first appointment?

No pre-referral work-up is required for most conditions. The patient should bring any related imaging studies with results, office notes or other pertinent information. This information can also be faxed to (757) 668-8788. Please include the appointment date and time on the fax to ensure timely processing.

When will my patient be able to obtain an appointment?

The Vascular Team meets the second and third Friday of the month; your patient will be seen at the earliest appointment available.

Which provider will see my patient at the first appointment?

The center’s core staff consists of specialists in pediatric plastic surgery, head and neck surgery, and dermatology. This multispecialty approach allows the best possible outcome.

Where will my patient be seen?

The hemangiomas and vascular birthmarks team meet twice a month in the ENT clinic, located on the 2nd floor of CHKD in Norfolk.
