Lymphedema Treatment & Support

Carroll Hospital 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’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.

Lymphedema Treatment Costs
Not covered by insurance, patients must pay for the cost of these services out of pocket. The costs are:

  • Intake appointment – $65 per session
  • Upper extremity (arm) – $85 per session
  • Lower extremity (leg) – $95 per session.

Partial or full funding for services may be available through a grant from the Maryland Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® for breast cancer patients. Assistance is dependent upon the availability of funds.

Lymphedema treatment is provided in the Dixon Building on the Carroll Hospital campus. Call 410-871-6161 for more information or to make an appointment.
