In his venous practice, Dr. Lekich has conservatively managed Lipoedema for over 10 years. He shifted to the surgical management of the disease once he established the purpose-built, licensed, Miami Private Hospital and training in Germany with Dr Heck.

Dr Lekich has collaborated with the world’s leading Lipoedema Surgeon, Dr Heck of Germany’s LipoClinic.  Dr Lekich has made several visits to Germany for personalised training with Dr Heck who has become his mentor and good friend.  Dr Heck has also personally spent a number of days visiting Miami Private Hospital in 2017 hosted by Dr. Lekich.  This technique of Lipo-Extraction has been perfected over 14 years, now making it available in Australia.

Apart from Dr Lekich’s extensive training in microsurgery, minimally invasive management of venous disease and Lipoedema surgery, he has a formal law degree, has been admitted to the Bar and has completed a Masters of Business Administration.
