Vascular Birthmark Symptoms
The most obvious symptom of a vascular birthmark is the discoloration of the skin. However, in certain cases they may cause pain, discomfort or even affect sight, depending on the size and location of the malformation. It is important to make an appointment with Dr. Greg Levitin at the Vascular Birthmark Center for an accurate diagnosis of the nature of the birthmark. You are welcome to ask questions throughout the process, as Dr. Levitin encourages open dialogue at the Vascular Birthmark Center.
Facial Nerve Monitoring
Many treatment centers estimate risks as high as 50% for facial nerve damage as a result of certain vascular birthmark malformation treatments. However, using an intraoperative nerve monitoring system has allowed Dr. Greg Levitin to reduce the potential risk to less than 1%. The two types of conditions which pose the most risk are venous malformations followed by lymphatic malformations, due the increased likelihood of damage occurring to the facial nerves.
Dr. Levitin is committed to ensuring the best-case scenario is by far the most likely outcome, providing patients with peace of mind from knowing that receiving treatment for a vascular birthmark is not a high-risk gamble. The diagnosis and treatment options are discussed in a way that allows patients to make informed decisions about their own care, with the expert guidance of Dr. Levitin.
