    Why Us..


    During the first consultation, we evaluate the patient and find the cause of lymphedema. We note if there are any complications arising due to Lymphedema, such as skin infection, final infection, bleeding, skin hardening and so on.

     The next step involves certain investigations if required, to understand the depth of the problem and sometimes to establish a diagnosis of lymphedema.

    Then the treatment is started with medicines (if required) and treatment specifically to lymphedema like manual lymphatic drainage and special bandaging of the lymphedema limb. Options of surgery is also discussed in cases where lymphedema can be helped by surgery.

    The surgical options range from Lymphatic venous shunt, Lymph node-venous shunt, Vascularized Lymph node transfer, liposuction and excisional procedures with skin grafting . A proper record of all patients is maintained with measurements charts to monitor to see the long term results. Dr. Anshuman Manaswi is one of the pioneers of Lymphedema surgeries in the country. We try to be a one stop solution offering center for the patients suffering from Lymphedema.

    How to Diagnose Lymphedema ?

    Clinical Examination

    Clinical examination is a must and can diagnose Lymphedema to a fair bit of accuracy. It also helps the clinician to know if there are any infection or any complication.


    lymphoscintigraphy is the gold standard to diagnose Lymphedema and to understand the level of obstruction. This is an OPD procedure were a very very small amount of radio tagged sulphur is injected in the affected limb and images are taken to identify the obstruction. The medicine only travels by the lymphatics, Hence a diagnosis can be make.

    MRI - Lymphangiography

    MRI with contrast, specific for lymphatic system can delineate the lymphatic structure to a very high degree of accuracy, this new procedure helps in diagnosing and planning the surgery. A very useful tool indeed, for lymphatic surgeons

    ICG fluroscence lymphography

    ICG fluroscence lymphography is a OPD procedure in which the ICG- dye is injected in the skin. ICG is only taken up by the Lymphatics and by using special instruments florescent image of the lymphatics can be seen. This is a very useful tool for Lymphatic mapping and it also picks up very early lymphedema through its specific patterns. This Investigation has the capacity to revolutionize and simplify the treatment of Lymphedema.
