Project Pink'd is excited to present Sean Figy M.D., a plastic and reconstructive surgery specialist with a specialty in reconstructive microsurgery and complex reconstruction. He also has an additional specialty in lymphatic surgeries. 

In this Straight Talk: Ask an Expert series with Dr. Figy we will explore new and emerging treatments for lymphedema. Cutting edge therapies such as lymphovenous bypass and vascularized lymph node transplants will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on how these therapies integrate into current treatment modalities.
