Oxford Lymphoedema Practice

The Oxford Lymphoedema Practice is the UK’s leading practice for all surgery for lymphoedema. Our surgeons are highly skilled and highly trained by the world leaders in each type of surgery, having travelled across the globe to learn the techniques. OLP offers multiple Lymphaticovenular Anastomoses (LVA), Liposuction for Lymphoedema (LFL), and vascularized Lymph Node Transfer (LNT) as well as a screening programme for patients at risk of developing lymphoedema.

LVA: This surgery was pioneered by Professor Koshimo in Japan. It joins the lymphatic channels to veins in order to bypass any blockage. It is a highly technical but low risk surgery.

LFL: is large volume liposuction and should not be confused with cosmetic liposuction. It dramatically reduces long standing and advanced lymphoedema giving the patient a normal sized limb again.

LNT: This surgery transplants a healthy lymph node section into the damaged area allowing new pathways to develop over time.

Lipoedema UK

Lipoedema UK are incredibly proud to be the first UK charity for Lipoedema. We are dedicated to raising awareness of Lipoedema, advocating better treatment and our aim is to generate medical interest in the condition leading to new research. Lipoedema UK Board consists of women with Lipoedema and clinicians working in the Lymphoedema clinic at St George’s Hospital in London and throughout the UK. Our work includes educating doctors, health professionals and the public about Lipoedema and its symptoms. It is shocking that a disease first described in the 1940s is still so misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Most women have lived with the condition for decades before realising they have it. Our aim is to put Lipoedema on the medical radar, tackle misdiagnosis and help women get access to the treatment they need, much, much earlier.

We aim to give factual information about the condition, advice on treatments and be a reliable source of information on the options available. We also understand how important emotional support is to cope with the everyday challenges that the condition creates. We have members of all ages from eighteen to 80. Our member’s conferences are a great way of meeting leading experts and making friends who understand your issues. Please support Lipoedema UK. It’s a herculean task ahead of us and requires substantial funding and effort. We would also like to hear your news and stories for our newsletter.
