At Oxford Lymphoedema Practice, we take pride in monitoring the outcomes from our surgery. The measurement of successful outcomes depends on each individual patient, and their expectations. We tailor our treatments to the individual, choosing a package of surgical care that is best suited to you.

Publications and presentations

We regularly present the outcomes of our surgery at national and international meetings, meaning they are subject to rigorous review by the World’s top lymphoedema surgeons and physicians. In addition, we have published scientific papers detailing the results of our LVA surgery (as this is the operation we have been doing for longest).

Providing a proven and effective treatment for Lymphoedema delivered by world experts



It would be impossible for me to fully explain the difference that the improvement in my Lymphedema has made to my quality of life so far - Thank you!



Please thank Mr Gore who saw me for his very helpful letter, it is good to know that there is somewhere to turn to for clarity on lymphoedema



I think the service you have given me has been the best medical experience I have ever had, the team is very professional but with a really great empathy for the patient which makes one feel very comfortable and cared for.



My left leg is still staying soft and maintaining a good shape. I have noticed a reduction in my thigh area recently just by looking!



The surgery has made a big difference to my mobility, which has enabled me to do things that I want to do. The pain has lessened, which has improved my quality of life. Everyone in the practice I've had contact with has been kind and understanding. They've worked hard to make things better for me.



Many thanks for your wonderful service. You've changed my life by correcting my painful lymphoedema. Coming to see you was the best thing. All my thanks for making such a difference to my and our lives.
