BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., April 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- For the 4th year, Dr. David Amron M.D. will be a featured speaker at the Fat Disorders Research Society Conference leading the Comprehensive Review of Science, Safety & Efficacy for Lipedema/Dercum's Surgery panel and break out sessions highlighting the advances in surgical treatment options for lipedema. FDRS, founded in 2009, is an organization dedicated to investment in comprehensive research, collaboration, management advocacy and care to improve the lives of those with fat disorders. Their annual conference is the most important global convergence for practitioners and patients on fat-related diseases.
"Although first named in the 1940's, the crucial issue with lipedema has been the poorly understood disease biology, for which patients have historically had limited treatment options in terms of diagnostics, effective treatment protocols or long-term care to relieve their symptoms and eliminate the health and wellness issues associated with this chronic disease, making the FDRS conference and their work vitally important," said Dr. Amron.
After over a dozen years working on the most difficult cases gaining a masterful understanding of the disease biology and the combination of holistic and surgical protocols to serve the lipedema community, Dr. Amron dedicated his personal practice to concentrate on lipedema patient care, and has performed more than 2,000 lipedema surgeries. The Roxbury Institute is now one of the world's most comprehensive centers for not only surgical but pre- and post-operative care as well as ongoing treatment planning.
A patient advocate, Dr. Amron created the Lipedema Society to encourage public advocacy, awareness, education, support and resources for those affected by lipedema. The Lipedema Society also sponsors a fellowship program to train qualified surgeons from around the world in lipedema surgery. His protocols and programs will be presented at the FDRS Conference.
According to Dr. Amron, "Integrated albeit modified forms of advanced liposuction to remove the diseased fat is the best treatment available and starts a healing cascade. We identify and remove the diseased fat from the patient relieving pain and increasing mobility, but as a result, the body then restores metabolic, hormonal and endocrine systems towards normalcy, giving the patient a chance to systematically normalize and heal physically, mentally and emotionally."
An estimated 17 million women in the U.S. alone suffer from this often debilitating, painful and life-threatening syndrome as well the isolation, depression, and stigma of the disease.
Annually the FDRS conference brings together the world's top physicians, clinicians, researchers, nutritionists and patients with compression and lymphatic drainage experts as well as hormone, fitness and inflammation specialists to educate the medical community as well as patients and caregivers to increase awareness of lipedema, Dercums Disease and other related fat disorders.
