Elephantiasis (Lymphatic Filariasis)

Hi Doc and all of you guys
One of my relatives was involved in an accident few years ago and the leg was injured. Now she has developed this disease called Elephantiasis, her legs have been swollen for some time now and they turned almost black.
Can you refer me to any specialist who can cure this kind of ailment.
Any other advise will be appreciated regarding the cure of this ailment.

Thanks and God bless

Dear Mandisa
She needs to see a surgeon ( a vascular surgeon if possible) and as soon as possible.
