Top Facial AVM Doctors, Specialists, Experts?

My surgeon is awesome, but she thought she was treating a vascular malformation and now lab tests show I have an AVM.

Looks like Suen in Arkansas may be the best in the U.S.? But I’ve only just begun to look at this, so I’d like to hear about doctors and other experts I can consult with and where I might possibly go for surgery.


Hi MikeW. I was a patient of Dr. Suen’s as well. He is a brilliant surgeon and extremely compassionate and communicative. Where is your AVM located and where do you live?

Hi Debra. Dr. Suen looks great. I’ve not been his patient, just heard about him a couple days ago after my AVM diagnosis. My AVM is in my face and was previously called a hemangioma and then a vascular malformation.

I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Allah yardimcin olsun kardesim, isin zor. Ben 33 yildir ugrasiyorum. Umarim bi cozum bulursun.

Dr. James Suen at UAMS in Little Rock, Arkansas is an expert in everything head & neck. He has been treating my son for 13 years. He saved my son’s life. He has written many books on AVM’s, participates in seminars all over the world as well as treats patients from around the world.
He is also an expert on trigeminal neuralgia, which my son has as well.
Dr. Suen is the most compassionate and knowledgeable doctor.
Our only wish is that we sought a second opinion from him 2 years earlier than we did. My son would have been spared so much pain and mistreatment. He literally saved my son’s life!!!
I recommend him so highly.
