Physical Rehabilitation Services

In conjunction with the Rusk Institute's Physical Therapy Department, the Supportive Services Program's Lymphedema Clinic provides screenings and treatment plans for patients with cancer-related lymphedema (limb swelling from fluid buildup caused by a compromised lymphatic system).

Evaluations conducted by Rusk's professional staff are held by appointment each Friday at the Perlmutter Cancer Center.

Patients interested in Lymphedema Clinic services should speak with their doctor or nurse.
