Benefits of compression treatment of Lipedema
Dr Thomas Wright, USA
Medical director of Laser, Lipo and Vein Center, USA. He is one of the first two hundred plus surgeons in the nation to become a diplomat of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. Dr. Wright brings a multidisciplinary, comprehensive approach to treating causes of edema from treating venous insufficiency with saphenous ablations to managing lymphedema and lipedema. His comprehensive approach is to first evaluate the venous and lymphatic system with a physical exam and Venous Doppler Ultrasound, which provides invaluable information on the presence of extremity edema and its cause. He has authored and presented several scientific papers on new surgical techniques for the treatment of venous insufficiency and has received several awards and honors for his original research in the treatment of venous insufficiency.
