Lipedema-Lipoedema-Lipödem Provider Worldwide Directory
This provider directory has been compiled by the worldwide network of lipedema ladies. While this is not a recommendation for any particular provider, those listed were added by someone who had been treated or knew of them. If you have a provider, or are a provider, who is diagnosing, treating or caring for lipedema patients and would like to be added to the directory, please contact Simone at [email protected] with information and she will follow up with you.
American Lymphedema Framework Project (ALFP) provides a search directory to locate trained specialists in lymphedema management. These therapists are generally trained in lipedema as well and can be very helpful for both diagnosis and treatment. DIRECTORY HERE
Special thanks to Maria Kokkinou Boege, founder and director of MY LIPOEDEMA JOURNEY-FOR LADIES GLOBALLY, who provided a comprehensive listing of surgeons to expand our directory. And to all the lipedema ladies who ongoingly contribute to this directory. (5 October 2017).
About The Friedman Center
The Friedman Center for Lymphedema Research and Treatment at The Center for Advanced Medicine at Northwell Health in New York was founded in 2013. Its focus has been on offering solutions for patients with lymphedema, a debilitating condition that occurs in many patients after cancer treatment.
The Friedman Center’s scope of care now includes treatment for lipedema, a condition that can also result in lymphedema. To that end, the Friedman Center has created the Lipedema Project, a comprehensive program to increase awareness and provide education, research and treatment for lipedema. The Friedman Center is proud to sponsor the lipedema documentary, The Disease They Call FAT, the 1st International Symposium on Lipedema, the Lipedema Think Tank, the Lipedema Solutions Forum for women with lipedema in April 2015 and this online CME eduring materials course for physicians.
