Lymphedema Treatment for Chronic Swelling

Lymphedema is a chronic, life-long condition that causes progressive swelling of an area of the body (arm, leg, or face) that is experiencing lymphatic dysfunction. Lymphedema may be caused by a variety of reasons including radiation therapy, surgery, trauma, or illness and it can be managed.

Specially trained physical and/or occupational therapists work with patients to provide comprehensive treatment to decrease swelling and mange it long-term. Treatment can involve a variety of methods including:

  • Comprehensive evaluations to determine individualized treatment plans and therapeutic goals.
  • Work with doctors to recommend lymphedema management products such as compression garments, lymphedema pumps, and other specialized lymphedema products.
  • Provide specialized and individualized treatment that may include therapeutic exercise, manual lymph drainage, multi-component bandaging, skin and wound care, and custom home programs.
  • Train and educate patients and their caregivers to manage lymphedema long-term

Your Story is our Story - Glens Falls Hospital "From Cheri and Dr. DeCunzo to the teams of providers assigned to my surgeries and the incredibly kind and attentive nurses of the surgical floor, to say my time at Glens Falls Hospital was a "good experience" is quite the understatement. I feel so fortunate to have been in such fantastic care and can now report I am back to full duties as mom, wife, and 'Dr. Erin'. " Erin Wright Bennington, VT
