Lymphedema (protein-rich swelling) may result from surgical removal and/or radiation of lymph nodes due to cancer. However, it can also result from chronic swelling due to venous insufficiency or malformation of the lymphatic system.
Complete Decongestive Physiotherapy is the most effective treatment in the management of lymphedema and is offered through our physical therapy department.
Treatment, consisting of manual lymph drainage, compression therapy, skin and nail care and remedial exercises are administered by our rehab team who have specialized training in lymphedema treatment.
Recommendations and fitting for appropriate support stockings is also available.
