New and Emerging Treatments for Lymphedema -- 2014

Lymphedema is the swelling that occurs when a blockage in the lymphatic system prevents the lymph fluid in the arm or leg from draining adequately. As the fluid accumulates, the swelling continues. It frequently follows surgery for cancer and is an ongoing challenge for the patient. This talk by the Director of the Lymphedema Clinic focuses on the new and emerging treatments for this condition. Speaker: Stanley Rockson, MD
