My son has a nasal tip h. My pedi consulted a doc at johns Hopkins who recommended treatment with propanol. Is johns Hopkins fairly well respected in their treatment of h?

Hi and welcome,

I've never heard anything bad about John Hopkins and their treatment of birthmarks. Also, that is an appropriate treatment option.

Others will chime in soon, too. But come back if you have any more questions or if VBF can help in any way.

Hello, Propranolol is being used very often lately to treat hemangiomas. Specifically to treating hemangiomas at JH I am not sure; however, one of well respected experts is associated with Johns Hopkins related to syndromes related to vascular malformations.

My wife and I had our daughter treated at hopkins for a Hemangioma on her neck. The head of Pediatric Dermatology was great. She took pictures as she write a book on hemangiomas for other doctors (I think her name was Dr. Putkin). She was great with our daughter, put us on Propanolol and put us in the hospital overnight the first night just to be sure there wasn't any negative reactions to the drug.

We were happy with the results, and have a follow up with a plastic surgery consult about a possible removal (Daughter is 30 months)

propanol is the first step of many to trying to resolve them, they work on some not on others
