Surgeons in the Division of Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery at Cincinnati Children’s play a key role in a number of multidisciplinary programs and services that involve highly specialized training and expertise. These programs and centers include the Colorectal Center for Children, the Fetal Care Center of Cincinnati and the Surgical Weight Loss Program for Teens. Each year, our surgeons from general surgery and specialized programs and centers perform more than 3,700 procedures and have 8,000 clinic visits with patients.
One of only three facilities in the United States that is considered a national referral center for children and young adults with complex hemangiomas, other rare vascular tumors and vascular malformations. The center currently follows about 2,000 patients, adding about 450 new patients each year.
The Hemangioma and Vascular Malformation Program is a partnership between the Cincinnati Children’s Hematology / Oncology Division and the Division of Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery. The center’s multidisciplinary team specializes in establishing an accurate diagnosis, something that can be challenging due to the complex nature of these conditions.
An accurate diagnosis is important because it allows the team to develop the most effective treatment plan. Read more.
