Our Lymphedema treatment program focuses on post-surgical swelling following any surgery and following breast cancer treatments. We see those who feel their swelling is impeding the healing and functional movement following surgery of a knee, shoulder, arm, hip or other body part. Or those who are at risk of lymphedema, or may have a history of edema/swelling prior to surgical procedures.
Your treatment is provided by Occupational Therapists who are Certified Lymphedema Therapists, internationally certified through the Lymphology Association of North America, certified in the Breast Cancer Rehab and Strength After Breast Cancer (Strength ABC) program.
