Lymphoedema is a swelling condition that usually affects the arms and legs. It is most often caused by the removal of the lymph nodes as part of treatment for cancer, though the swelling may not start for many years after surgery. It can also occur genetically.
Lymphoedema is not curable but the build up of fluid that causes the swelling can be treated and managed at the clinic and through suggested activities at home.
Patients must be referred to the clinic by their GP or consultant. Those referred will be invited to an assessment appointment lasting about two hours which includes a thorough consultation. After this, we will arrange a course of treatment or appointments to best help you.
Appointments are available every weekday, including an evening session on the first Wednesday of each month.
