Dr. Raj Sawh-Martinez, Medical Director for Pediatric Plastic Surgery at AdventHealth for Children, discusses some common reasons parents may seek out plastic surgical care for their child such as malformations, growths, traumatic accidents and more. Our team is here to provide the best resources and education so that you feel confident in the care we will provide.

Comprehensive Evaluation and Treatment of Vascular Anomalies

Vascular anomalies are birthmarks or growths that can cause cosmetic or functional problems. They are made up of blood vessels, including veins, arteries, capillaries or lymphatic vessels, that have developed abnormally. While some vascular anomalies may be present at birth or apparent soon after, others may not be detected until later in childhood.

We know that any abnormality in your child can be scary. Our multidisciplinary team of pediatric specialists is here for you and experienced in providing thorough evaluation and diagnosis for a full range of vascular anomalies. We will work in partnership with you to determine the best treatment plan for your child.
