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.

Our specially-trained lymphedema rehab team provides treatment, including:
