Lymphoedema

 

Lymphoedema

is swelling caused by damaged or abnormal lymphatic vessels. It is a chronic condition that requires ongoing monitoring and treatment.
It can occur following treatment for breast cancer or any other cancer surgery where lymph nodes are removed or damaged.
Treatment aims to prevent progression of this condition through early detection, swelling reduction and maintenance.

Early detection:
Using the latest tissue analysis equipment, we are able to detect early changes in tissue fluid before it can be seen or even felt. This means we are able to pick up early onset
lymphoedema and start treatment, which is essential to prevent progression of this condition.

Conditions treated:

  • Primary lymphoedema
  • Secondary lymphoedema
  • Head and neck lymphoedema
  • Breast, trunk and abdominal lymphoedema
  • Post surgical scar tissue
