I attended a lymphedema seminar in Palm Springs in November and met noted lymphedema surgeon, Dr. Jay Granzow. Dr. Granzow shared information on his lymphedema surgery procedures – VLNT, LVA, and SAPL and offered me guidance on how to treat his San Diego patients with manual lymphatic drainage when they return home.
I also learned about the treatment of post-cancer pelvic lymphedema and treating lymphedema patients with HIV. The Ketogenic diet is being investigated as an option for lymphedema patients with obesity or a cancer history.
