Vascular Malformation Clinic - Pediatric

An abnormal cluster of capillaries, also known as hemangioma, may develop over time in infants and, if not treated properly, can cause obstruction to important bodily functions such as seeing, hearing, feeding and even breathing. Dr. Sherry Bayliff is available to offer evaluations and second opinions on complex and straightforward cases at the UK Vascular Malformation Clinic.

Every patient is unique and this requires individualized attention. At Kentucky Children’s Hospital, a multidisciplinary team of pediatric specialists, including pediatric surgeons, ophthalmologists, otolaryngologists and plastic surgeons, will work together to develop a comprehensive treatment plan to treat your child’s vascular malformation.

Treatment options for Hemangiomas can include any of the following based on your child’s evaluation:

  • A steroid regimen.
  • Medical therapies (such as Propranolol, a beta-blocker that requires a 24-hour hospital stay).
  • Chemotherapy.
  • Dr. Bayliff and her team will try to make surgery/laser therapy the last option for your child.
