At Penn Medicine, we've been expertly treating lymphatic disorders in adults for more than two decades, with more experience than any other program in the nation.

Interventional radiologist and pioneer Dr. Constantin Cope introduced the thoracic duct embolization procedure more than 20 years ago. Since then, experts at the Penn Center for Lymphatic Disorders have consistently developed advanced imaging and interventional technologies to treat lymphatic disorders.

With our innovative and collaborative approach to treatment, surgeons, interventional radiologists, anesthesiologists, and other specialists in lymphatic disorders work together to develop plans that are specific to each patient's individual needs. We're able to treat disorders that may once have been viewed as untreatable, all while using minimally invasive techniques. 

Treatment for Lymphatic Flow Disorders and Conditions

Our internationally recognized program is one of only two in the United States that is dedicated to providing advanced care for adult patients with lymphatic flow disorders and conditions, including:

Every week, our multidisciplinary team of interventional radiologists, nurse practitioners, case managers, plastic surgeons, pulmonologists, cardiologists, hepatologists and physical therapists, reviews new, current and prior cases.

We welcome patients from all over the world and critically review each individual case before scheduling. We work closely with you and your family, as well as insurance companies and referring providers, to get you the best possible care.
