Our Philosophy

our philosophy vs. the conference model

Many other institutions practice what’s called the “Vascular Anomaly Conference Model,” where the patient is presented in front of a large group of medical professionals. Our group feels that the conference model approach can be stressful for adult patients, and traumatic for children. This method often results in the patients and families leaving the room confused, without a clear treatment plan or knowing who is taking primary responsibility for their care.

How Your Medical Challenge is Handled here

Each patient is individually evaluated by an expert physician of The AVM Center of New York at Lenox Hill. Then all of the appropriate specialists (who practice together and are in daily contact) review the situation and make recommendations. The patient and family is then seen privately by the specialist most expert in the problem, with arrangements for other specialists in the group to be seen as needed.
