About Lymphedema Microsurgery

Dr. Cheng has been practicing Lymphedema microsurgery since 2000. He has invented some of the most advanced and effective surgical techniques to treat lymphedema. His ground-breaking innovation of vascularized submental lymph node (VSLN) and vascularized groin lymph node (VGLN) flap transfer to distal recipient site creates a physiologic drainage conduit to alter excess lymphatic fluid buildup and minimize the lymphedema associated side effects of tissue fibrosis and cellulitis. Dr. Cheng’s lymphedema microsurgery outcomes show statistically significant circumferential reduction rates of affected limb circumference and impressive decreases in the episodes of cellulitis on the lymphedematous limb. His practice is the first in the world to immediately release patients from wearing compression garments postoperatively.
