Subglottic hemangioma
Bryce Duke

Bryce was diagnosed with a subglottic hemangioma at 9 weeks old after his breathing became very labored. Dr. Woolley performed 11 CO2 laser surgeries, one LTR surgery (to remove the hemangioma in Bryce’s airway and make his airway larger using cartilage from his ear) and one plastic surgery to remove the hemangioma from Bryce's lip. We lived in Montgomery at the time and never once minded or complained about the drive to Birmingham. Dr. Woolley and his staff and the rest of the hospital staff were amazing to us during those two years. Children's became a home away from home for us.
