Understanding Knee’s basic Anatomy Lymphedema is a medical condition in which lymphatic-fluid build-up causes tissue swelling. In the case of Breast Cancer, Lymphedema causes chronic swelling that progresses over time in n the upper extremity ipsilateral to the axillary node dissection. In some cases, the swelling occurs in the region where the radiation treatment has been performed. This condition is chronic & gets severe over time.

With the introduction of Super Microsurgery, now it's possible to treat Lymphedema surgically. Lymphatic Venous Anastomosis (LVA) For Lymphedema Lymphatic Venous Anastomosis or LVA is an advanced Super Microsurgery used to treat a bit simpler cases of Lymphedema. We prefer this procedure when patients feel unsatisfied with the alternate Lymphedema management treatment. This procedure is highly effective & can reduce the possibility of advanced Lymphedema. Under this procedure, the still intact (not damaged) lymphatic vessels are connected to the nearby vein. This allows the lymph fluid to return to the circulatory system in the region away from the heart, reducing the deposition and resultant swelling in the region.
