Hi everybody my name is Hank Bartenbach.
I am twenty years old and I have had PWS and vascular malformation's (hemangeoma's). I have been haveing laser treatments for about fourteen years. I am on my third laser at this time.
I live in Nevada and I have been looking for the technolgy in my area that can remove my malformation because they are to big to be removed my laser treatment. The doctors told my parents ten years ago that I could get the blood supply to my face cut off but it would leave the chance to loose my eye site so my parents did not do it.
I have been looking for the technolgy that can cut off the blood supply to certain spots on my head so the laser treatment will make it go away and it will not fill back up with blood.

If anybody could help please?

If anyone has any questions please ask.

Talk to everybody soon.

Hank B
