Hemangiomas

Hemangiomas are local overgrowths of blood vessels that occur in infants, but may persists for many years. In some situations, they can be quite dangerous or disfiguring.

As a Director of the Children’s Hospital Vascular Anomalies Clinic and their Laser Surgery Specialist, Dr. Poole’s experience and expertise makes him uniquely qualified in the diagnoses and treatment of these conditions. Various treatments for hemangiomas may include: Oral medicines such as Propranalol/Hemangeol or steroids; topical treatments, or more aggressive systemic medications. In many cases, watchful waiting may be all that is undertaken. In some situations laser therapy presents the best option of treatment.

Lasers and Light Sources that may be used to treat Hemangiomas include:

  • V-Beam
  • GentleYag
  • GentleLase
  • Matrix CO2
