My daughter had a scalp hemangioma that we had surgically removed last month with Dr. Levitin. We debated long and hard about it, but I really feel we made the right decision. The surgery was about 1.5 hours long, she came out of anethesthia a little cranky, but I held her for awhile and she feel asleep for about an hour and then took a bottle of sugar water and then a bottle of formula and we were on our way after about 2 hours in the post op recovery room. She was a little off that night but was back to her normal self the next day. She had dissolvable stitches and no drain. Like I said, couldn't be happier, he head looks so good now. Scar is so minimal.
