First announced publicly in May 2023, Dr. Wei F. Chen will expand on initial findings about lymphatic dysfunctions of the brain. Groundbreaking revelations could lead to treatments for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, stroke recovery, and more.
If surgery can help these conditions, Dr. Chen is confident that lymphedema therapy can, too, and he believes it is time to focus on treating lymphedema of the brain.
