Lymphedema Treatment Services (LTS) CLINIC
From the finest European spas and Clinics of Lymphology, Dr. Vodder’s Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) procedure made its debut in the United States in the 1980’s. Dr. Robert Lerner, “Pioneer of Lymphedema Treatment” introduced the modality to the U.S. by offering diagnosis, treatment and education through his many clinics. As one of New York’s leading surgeons, he had a desire to help patients suffering with lymphatic conditions that could be managed with MLD.
Working as an MLD specialist for the founder in a clinic, which was exclusively devoted to MLD, provided Lerner with invaluable experience with a diverse population of patients in need of MLD services. As knowledge expanded, interest in Manual Lymph Drainage grew, and so did the staff.
Elisa DiFalco became Clinic Director of LTS (Lymphedema Treatment Services) Clinic of Lauderhill, owned by the DiFalco
family and under the direction of Physician-In-Chief, Michael King, M.D., a renowned Cardiologist and Lymphatic Specialist. The LTS Clinic was a member of the NLN and compression garment dealers of Juzo, Sigvaris, Med-Assist, Reid Sleeve & Circaid products.
Additionally, the LTS Clinic offered:
- physician expert diagnosis
- certified orthotic and compression garment fitting
- support groups
- insurance consulting and expert witnesses.
This full service clinic understands the role of the MLD modality in the American health care system, billing,
patient education, and therapeutic goals & outcomes, hence establishing itself as a “clinic day” site for
three of America’s leading Lymphedema schools.
