Hemangiomas and vascular malformations; genetic predispositions to cancer
Dr. Adrienne M. Hammill is trained in pediatrics and hematology/oncology and is particularly interested in bringing new and/ or better medical therapy options to the treatment of vascular anomalies. She is one of the medical physicians for the Hemangioma and Vascular Malformations team. She obtained her schooling at the University of Texas Southwestern, and completed her residency and fellowship here at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. She is a dedicated professional and strives to improve the treatment of those she cares for. Dr. Hammill has a special interest in Sturge Weber syndrome and due to her dedicated involvement, Cincinnati Children’s has been named a site for the brain vascular malformations consortium, which is a clinical research group funded by National Institutes of Health and the rare disease network. She was nominated as a finalist for The Making a Difference Award in 2013 through the Patient Advisory Council. This nomination for staff was for their efforts to improve the patient’s experience in terms of lives saved, errors caught, kindness shown, and battles fought. A Cincinnati Children’s patient nominated Dr. Adrienne Hammill for making her feel secure and talking to her one-on-one as a friend not a doctor.
