A neighbor told me about a news report on a female doctor in Chicago or Charleston who performs a surgery that reverses lymphedema. She is a plastic surgeon (Marge or Marga) who worked with female French surgeon from Paris. Most of the patients got lymphedema in the arm after a mastectomy and the news story said they had great results in 6 weeks. Did anybody see this broadcast? Does anyone have any information about this surgeon? Has anybody been treated by this doctor? I would really like to find out more about this doctor.
