Meet the International Birthmark Institute Team

Because some birthmarks may grow in sensitive areas such as eyes, throat, nose or genitals; their removal has to be carefully planned so as not to damage any organs and not to cause disfigurement.

The The International Birthmark Institute (TIBI) is composed of a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals that span many pediatric disciplines. Our team of specialists can carefully asses and remove birthmarks with precision and care.
