I have had two LVA (Lymphedema) surgeries with Dr. Wei Chen at the University of Iowa the past year (one 12/21 and one 6/13). He has helped me immensely. The work he has done on me and his findings with others similar to me will be included in a medical journal soon. I am early stages and even diagnostic tests said I didn’t have Lymphedema but surgery showed I have it in both legs. He is an amazing dr and I love his staff. Very kind and passionate about helping sufferers of Lymphedema.
Just wanted to let people know he is able to help many. It’s tricky with insurance and isn't cheap without insurance but please let me know if you questions. Very minimal pain and it has changed my life. He is doing cutting edge work in the field of Lymphedema surgeries. I am a 14 year survivor of Adeno Cervical Cancer (44 lymph nodes removed), radical hysterectomy, and radiation. I use compression stockings, do physical therapy, as well as a Flexitouch (nightly pump) machine. There is hope. <3
