GM5 –LS (Lymphoedema Surgery) January 26, 2014 Lymphedema awareness and assistance program

On occasion of Republic day of India, this special campaign was planned. This was one of the most successful programs arranged in Aurangabad city. It was a grand success with overwhelming response and participation of patients and social workers. The local Government authority working in filariasis national program helped to identify endemic areas of filarial lymphedema. The post cancer lymphedema patients were traced with active participation and assistance of Oncologists, Orthopedicians, Surgeons and many other volunteers. The newspapers helped in mass awareness and appeal for participation of needy patients in this program. The uniqueness of this campaign was providence of medical, surgical and rehabilitation care to patients. The surgical treatment for lymphedema is available at very few centers in the world. Still we need lot of support in terms of volunteers and finances to make these advanced treatments available to underprivileged people at mass basis. We are optimistic and hopeful.
