Delivering Advanced Lymphedema Treatment
More than 4 million Americans suffer from lymphedema, a chronic condition that causes abnormal and painful swelling in certain areas of the body, such as the arms and legs. Lymphedema can have debilitating effects on a person’s quality of life, but our team at the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Center offers innovative treatment that minimizes — or completely eliminates — the symptoms of this condition.
Our specially trained surgeons have mastered a unique procedure that involves the harvesting and transferring of healthy lymph nodes and vessels from an unaffected part of the body to the areas that need treatment. Following the procedure, patients typically experience an overall decrease or complete resolution of lymphedema symptoms.
