Just an update on our case: We've hit a dead end road as far as further help in Nashville and we are flying to NY next week. We have an appointment with Dr. Levitin to talk about laser treatments and probable future surgery. I feel like this is really the direction we should have gone a year ago! I'm excited and hopeful!

Hello. I recently consulted a surgeon regarding my daughter's hemangioma. He was lovely and took time with us and my child and explained options well. Ultimately he advised us against surgery for several years. The difference between this surgeon and many others... he works in a teaching hospital and is therefore not motivated by money. Perhaps you could look for someone who is in s similar position.
