Welcome to hemangioma.com
Welcome to Hemangioma.com, a Web site for Dr. Barry Zide, D.M.D., M.D.
Dr. Zide has treated hundreds of hemangioma cases of the face and body and can recommend excellent treatment options. Information provided on this site is provided as an educational tool only, and is not intended to be substituted for consultation with a qualified medical professional such as Dr. Zide.
Due to the nature of hemangioma cases, our focus is on the final outcome instead of immediate, post-operative results. We begin surgery early since the ultimate goal is to have children looking good for nursery school. For hemangiomas of the scalp, we begin as early as four months; for other hemangiomas in children we usually start after one year, as anesthesia is safer.
For further information on correct treatment of hemangiomas, before-and-after photos that show the results of correct treatment, and useful links about the nature of and treatment of hemangiomas, please take a look around this site. If after exploring this Web site you still have questions or would like to set up a consultation, please call or email Dr. Zide directly via the contact page.
