About This Presentation
Do you struggle with symptoms of lymphedema? It’s estimated that 5-25% of those who have surgery for breast cancer will develop some degree of lymphedema. How is lymphedema diagnosed? Can it be prevented? Can it be managed? What physical therapy treatment options are available?
Join our three panelists for an evening educational seminar and discussion to learn answers to these questions and more!
