Varicose Veins Coupled with Lipoedema Creates Complex Cases
Dr Lekich, as a Phlebologist of 14 years, specialises in the most complicated venous conditions that compound the burden associated with Lipoedema. Onsite ultrasound is used by Dr Lekich for comprehensive mapping, assessment, planning and treatment of the often combined venous and Lipoedema diseases. This comprehensive approach to treating both conditions reduces the burden on the lymphatics and reduces the risk of complications associated with these comorbidities. Due to Dr Lekich’s experience he often attracts patients with the most complicated leg conditions that require comprehensive treatment of both conditions. Surgery for the Lipoedema itself is minimally invasive, stagged, a bilateral (both legs together) to methodically remove the Lipoedema tissue. Dr Lekich has 25 years of experience working in operating theatres and 14 of these years working as a Phlebologist (specialised in treatment of varicose veins, Lipoedema and Lymphoedema).
