In our Department (15 beds), both primary and secondary lymphedema cases are treated. Autologous lymph-node-transfers, lymphatico-venous anastomoses and debulking procedures are performed upon indication; in breast-cancer lymphedema patients, lymphatic surgery is combined to breast reconstructive procedures (>40 microsurgical reconstructions/year). Specialized physiotherapists take over conservative therapy.

Lymphoedema is poorly recognised and frequently managed by non-specialist doctors.  We are one of the few centres in the world that specialise in the management of these complex conditions. We have 17 years experience in the diagnosis and management of paediatric and primary lymphoedema.   The clinic provides a multidisciplinary approach with geneticists, dermatologists, lymphoedema and MLD  therapists.  We provide treatment  both centrally and in collaboration with local therapists.  We are world leaders in discovering the genetic causes of these conditions.
