What part of the body?  Different specialists would treat this,
depending on the location (e.g., skin vs. eye, etc.).

Dear Shaste,

Thanks for the clarification.  Given the area of the lymphangioma, I
would suggest an ENT physician (also known as otolaryngologists, head
and neck surgeons, etc.).  ENT surgeons deal with both adult and
pediatric patients, however, some ENT surgeons have practices more
heavily weighted toward pediatrics.  Below, I have assembled a list of
physicians gleaned from multiple departmental listings of ENT surgeons
throughout the NY area.  Other physicians at Columbia and ENT likely
also treat lymphangiomas, however, most of these other MDs focus on
other areas of otolaryngology (e.g., skull base surgery, sinus
surgery, cochlear implants, etc.).

You may also be interested in more information about lymphangiomas of
the head and neck region.  You can find a good article from eMedicine
here, written by the chairman of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear
Infirmary at Harvard Medical School:
