Lymphedema Program

Patients who have breast or abdominal surgery or radiation therapy might be at risk for lymphedema, a form of fluid retention resulting from the loss of normal lymph channel drainage.

Piedmont Augusta's certified lymphedema therapists provide patient education and treatment to reduce lymphedema and the complications it can cause.

Patients who are receiving lengthy treatments have greater privacy and comfort. Trained professionals closely monitor each patient’s response to treatment in all locations.
