Carroll Hospital Center offers a Lymphedema Treatment Program to assist those who are suffering from the swelling and/or discomfort of this disorder, which can accompany cancer treatments.
Carroll Hospital Center’s Lymphedema Treatment Program provides specialized care to those suffering from swelling in one or both arms or legs as a result of a blockage that prevents drainage of lymph fluid. Open to both men and women with lymphedema, the program involves special massage treatments to reduce pain and swelling that are provided by a certified massage and lymphedema therapist.
The program includes an initial intake appointment followed by subsequent two-hour treatment sessions as needed. A physician referral and advance payment are required prior to your first visit. Appointments are available Monday through Friday by calling 410-871-6161.
