It is estimated that lymphoedema impacts more than 120 million people world-wide. It is still an incurable condition. Recent advances in microsurgery show promising results. We would like to explain the new surgical procedures and our philosophy around management.
Lymphoedema results from lymphatic obstruction. The retention of lymphatic fluid results in swelling of tissues.
Lymphoedema can be inherited (primary) or more frequently it is secondary as a result of cancer treatments, radiation or parasitic infections.
