Dr. Granzow is an internationally-known lymphedema surgeon who is Associate Professor of Surgery in the Division of Plastic Surgery at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and Assistant Chief of Plastic Surgery at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. He is Board Certified both by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.
Dr. Granzow is a premier specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of lymphedema. He is an internationally known expert in this field and performs the three types of lymphedema surgeries, which include Vascularized Lymph Node Transfer (VLNT), Lymphaticovenous Anastomosis (LVA), and Suction-Assisted Protein Lipectomy (SAPL).
Dr. Granzow was the first to successfully integrate these procedures into a comprehensive system known as the Functional Lymphatic Operations (FLO)SM System. This system integrates and combines these procedures with non-surgical lymphedema treatments to address specifically the fluid and solid stages of lymphedema and match each patient with the best procedure for their individual condition. Dr. Granzow has published his results in the leading medical journals.
VLNT, LVA and SAPL procedures each are most effective in treating specific lymphedema presentations, and no single procedure is best for all patients. Dr. Granzow carefully selects and matches each patient with the optimum therapy and surgical regimen to treat their lymphedema.
