Dr. Granzow is an internationally respected expert in lymphedema and lipedema surgery. Serving as Professor of Plastic Surgery at UCLA, he is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery and Head and Neck Surgery. He frequently lectures worldwide and publishes in leading medical journals.
Dr. Granzow is committed to advancing surgical innovations in lymphedema and lipedema treatment. He created the FLOSM lymphedema treatment system, the first of its kind in the world, incorporating lymphedema surgeries and therapy to successfully target each stage of lymphedema. For lipedema patients, Dr. Granzow’s surgical technique LipisuctionSM, safely and effectively removes pathologic fat while protecting lymphatic pathways.
Dr. Granzow’s FLOSM treatment system for patients with primary/congenital or secondary lymphedema is individually based on each patient’s stage of lymphatic disorder and specific symptoms. The FLOSM treatment system incorporates Vascularized Lymph Node Transfer (VLNT), Lymphaticovenous Anastomosis (LVA), and Suction-Assisted Protein Lipectomy (SAPL), which are lymphedema surgeries that have been proven safe and effective in leading medical journals for decades.
Lipedema is an often-misunderstood fat disorder in which pathologic fat accumulates commonly in the legs and arms, and can be very painful. Dr. Granzow uses the LipisuctionSM surgical technique to remove pathologic fat while protecting the patient’s lymphatic system. For lipedema patients who also develop lymphedema, Dr. Granzow prescribes the FLOSM lymphedema treatment program in conjunction to treat both disorders.
