The Vascular Anomalies & Malformations Program or VAMP is a highly specialized, multi-disciplinary, collaborative core team of physicians serving as the premier regional referral center in New Jersey for management of all vascular anomalies including hemangiomas and vascular malformations. At VAMP, we provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art, multi-disciplinary diagnostic and therapeutic services for patients with vascular anomalies. We also aim to increase patient, community, and physician awareness about vascular anomalies and malformations throughout New Jersey and beyond.
The VAMP team and affiliated colleagues provide a coordinated treatment plan tailored to each patient’s specific problem. We aim to educate patients and their families such that a realistic expectation of the course of the disease as well as treatment outcomes exists. As mentioned, treatment options are broad requiring the expertise of many different specialists each with unique sets of skills and experience. These include surgical resection and reconstruction, catheter-based techniques such as embolization and sclerotherapy, laser therapy, medical therapy, and simple observation with regular follow-up. Often times, a combination of these methods is necessary for optimal results. The VAMP team meets on a regular basis to discuss each and every patient’s case individually. Options are discussed and the safest, most appropriate treatment plan is chosen and offered considering all possible risks and benefits.
