Vascularized Lymph Node Transfer (Lymphedema Treatment)

Vascularized Lymph Node Transfer (VLNT) is an innovative treatment option for patients who have already developed lymphedema.  If the traditional treatment option for lymphedema (physical therapy) is not providing symptom relief, VLNT can offer new hope to patients living with lymphedema.   During this procedure, our plastic surgeons will relocate healthy lymph nodes to a region where lymph nodes were removed due to previous cancer surgery.
