Lipedema is a Mirror Image of Lymphedema with Stanley Rockson, MD
Dr. Rockson speaks about how he became interested in lymphology, which led him to study lymphedema and later lipedema. He discusses the relationship between the two diseases and highlights some of the mysteries of lipedema, including capillary fragility and nociceptive pain response. He also notes the challenges of studying the lymphatic system, both as a biological and an educational issue, and advocates for more medical education and research in lymphatics. Dr. Stanley G. Rockson is Director of the Stanford Center for Lymphatic and Venous Disorders, Chief of Consultative Cardiology, and Professor of Lymphatic Research and Medicine at the Stanford School of Medicine.
