Diagnosis of vascular anomalies can be extremely difficult. Our multidisciplinary team effort is key, not only to making an accurate diagnosis of vascular anomalies, but also to improving treatment alternatives. Through our Vascular Anomalies Program, we are aiming to become a leading subspecialty center for patients faced with vascular anomalies. We see patients at Main Campus.

Vascular anomalies are congenital growths comprising abnormally developed blood vessels, including arteries, veins, lymphatic vessels, and/or capillaries. These are typically present at birth, but become apparent at different ages. There are two general types of vascular anomalies.

The treatment of vascular anomalies ranges from minimally invasive interventional procedure to extensive surgical procedures.

Subspecialty focus

Dr Abraham Levitin, Director of the Vascular Anomalies Program, is dedicated to vascular anomalies and their treatment using various interventional techniques.

Multidisciplinary team

The team of specialists within our unique program understand the frustration that thousands of patients and their families have experienced with the limited availability of dedicated medical centers that specifically deal with vascular anomalies.

Specialists from several departments, including dermatology, radiology, reconstructive surgery, genetics, pathology, hematology, ophthalmology and orthopaedics work together to appropriately diagnose and treat vascular anomalies.

The team meets regularly for case-discussions regarding our referral patients, as well as to discuss ongoing matters related to vascular anomalies.

Ongoing research

Through ongoing research activities, our physicians are working to significantly contribute to scientific literature and explore more effective means of diagnostic tools and alternative treatment options.
