Lymphedema is a chronic and progressive condition characterized by swelling of the extremities or the head and neck region. Certified lymphedema specialists at TIRR Memorial Hermann and the Memorial Hermann Rehabilitation Network offer comprehensive treatment for lymphedema to reduce swelling, improve comfort, increase overall mobility and prevent further complications.
Pre-surgical Lymphedema Evaluation
We offer pre-surgical evaluations for baseline extremity measurements, skin assessment, therapeutic exercises and lymphedema education.
Complete Decongestive Therapy
We use Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) to treat patients with lymphedema. This effective comprehensive approach incorporates:
- Manual lymphatic drainage
- Skin care
- Compression bandaging
- Therapeutic exercises
- Self-care training
- Patient and family education
Once maximum volume reduction is achieved, the patient will be fitted for a compression garment and instructed to continue with exercises, skin care and self-manual lymphatic drainage. Follow up visits will be scheduled as needed.
- A prescription from a doctor is needed for lymphedema management
