WHAT TO EXPECT
LymphedemaMD is a relaxing and serene clinic for treatment, education, and resources – designed for your comfort and well-being. There are four private treatment rooms where you will receive individualized attention and services from our therapists who have been chosen for their exceptional commitment to lymphedema treatment. If your therapist believes you are a good candidate for vasopneumatic compression pump therapy then you will enjoy relaxing in our pump room which has a homey “living room” environment—where you let the pump do all the work!
Your initial visit is an evaluation by a doctor. We will also schedule you to see one of our therapists, if needed. There will be a thorough review of your family history and an evaluation and measurement of your affected limb(s). Based on this information, a personalized lymphedema treatment plan will be developed for you.
The time and frequency of your Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) sessions will be determined by your therapist and your availability. Each session will consist of a combination of manual lymph drainage, compression bandaging, exercise, nutrition education, and skin care counseling. Vasopneumatic compression pump therapy may also be part of the treatment plan.
LymphedemaMD accepts all major medical insurance. We also accept Medicare and Tricare.
Monday – Friday, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. We also offer therapy sessions outside our normal working hours on an as needed basis.
