Team-Based Care

We'll work with you and your doctors to create a personalized care plan. Your cancer rehabilitation care team may include:

Manage Lymphedema

Surgery or radiation treatment may remove or damage parts of your lymphatic system. This increases your risk of developing lymphedema, or swelling due to a build-up of lymph fluid. Your physical therapist will work with you to help manage lymphedema.
