We understand that lymphedema and lipedema are devastating. They make it hard to work, enjoy hobbies and sports, and are especially hard on relationships with family and friends. Since 2005, Dr. Granzow has consistently improved the lives of patients using the most advanced and effective surgery and treatment options. His comprehensive lymphedema treatment program, the FLO System®, was the first successful truly integrated system of surgery and therapy for lymphedema. Dr. Granzow’s Lipisuction® lymphatic sparing lipedema surgery effectively treats lipedema, even in severe cases.
We work side-by-side with each patient for every step of the journey, from initial consultation to surgery and beyond. We have successfully made lymphedema and lipedema treatment affordable for our patients through insurance coverage.
Our Center has extensive experience and success in treating primary and secondary lymphedema patients, even in chronic and severe cases. Dr. Granzow’s comprehensive lymphedema treatment program, FLO System®, can consistently and effectively reduce the volume of an arm or leg back down to that of an unaffected arm or leg. Dr. Granzow’s lymphedema treatment program also consistently reduces the compression and therapy patients require for their daily routine. As a leading researcher in lymphedema surgery, Dr. Granzow’s amazing patient results have been published in prominent medical publications and at medical conferences worldwide.
Dr. Granzow is one of the world’s preeminent lymphedema and lipedema surgeons. He is a pioneer in lymphedema surgery and created the first integrated lymphedema surgery treatment system, known as the FLO System®. He also pioneered the Lipisuction® lymphatic sparing lipedema surgery treatment system to effectively treat lipedema. He has successfully treated hundreds of patients who experience lasting improvements. Dr. Granzow has been performing lymphedema and lipedema surgery since 2005, frequently lectures worldwide, and publishes in leading medical journals.
We care deeply about patients’ wellbeing and their quality of life. We listen to our patients to fully understand their struggles with lymphedema or lipedema to formulate the best treatment plan so that they can accomplish their goals and realize their dreams. With Dr. Granzow’s expert surgical skills and the latest in imaging techniques, we are able to improve our patients’ quality of life significantly. We help to make surgery affordable to lymphedema and lipedema patients by working with insurance to pay for over 90% of surgeries.
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 LipectomySM(SAPLSM), 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.
