The Lymphedema Clinic
Women & Infants’ Program in Women’s Oncology offers a Lymphedema Clinic. This comprehensive approach to lymphedema management can reduce the build-up of lymphatic fluid in the arms and legs. This clinic focuses on prevention, treatment, and maintenance of lymphedema.
The most effective treatment is manual lymphatic drainage therapy. This technique is used to open the lymphatic system to help drain the affected limbs. Our lymphedema therapists have advanced training and have been certified to use a combination of specific treatments, called complete decongestive therapy (CDT). This includes:
- Lymphatic drainage massage.
- Compression bandaging of the involved limb(s).
- Education in proper diet, exercise and skin care precautions.
