Event Details

Lymphedema: Minimizing Your Risk After Surgery
Thursday, October 10, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM Save to Outlook/iCal
Lymphedema is most frequently developed after a surgical procedure, such as mastectomy or pelvic surgery, which interferes with lymphatic drainage. Radiation Therapy to lymph node areas may also cause or increase lymphedema development. A licensed Lymphedema Therapist will discuss the pathophysiology of the lymphatic system, lymphedema treatment and management as well as daily life precautions to minimize the risk of lymphedema.

Space is limited and registration is required. Light refreshments will be served starting at 5:30 pm.
