Vascular Birthmark Institute

 

The Vascular Birthmark Institute of New York was founded by
Co-Directors, Milton Waner, MD and Alejandro Berenstein, MD.

Dr. Waner is an internationally recognized expert and a pioneer in the treatment of hemangiomas and vascular malformations. His colleague, Dr. Berenstein is a renowned endovascular surgeon who heads the Hyman-Newman Institute for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

 

For the past 15 years, Dr. Waner has restricted his practice to the

treatment of hemangiomas and vascular malformations. We believe he is the only physician in the world to have done so. As a result of this, he has accumulated a wealth of experience and we believe that he has performed more surgeries in this field than anyone else.  Dr. Waner has developed a unique approach to children and adults with hemangiomas and vascular malformations and he is responsible for convincing physicians to operate earlier on children with hemangiomas.

 

Our mission is to continue to provide world-class care in the diagnosis, treatment, management, and research of all vascular birthmarks.


Annual "Picnic in the Park" Event

Thank you to all our wonderful patients and participants - volunteers and friends for making the Picnic in the Park such an incredible event. 500 attended the event... an incredible turn-out for the very first one. I had the opportunity to listen and watch parents hug, cry and laugh together - children played together, and new friends were made. We will post photos as soon as they are available. The drawings from the children are so wonderful and we will have them up and ready for your votes soon. Please join our discussion forum at www.wanerkids.org/forum and continue the community and support. It was an incredible day and emotional day for everyone. We truly have the very best parents... hope to see you all soon.
