Enhancing and providing optimal care for patients with breast cancer
and the side effects associated with treatment is the mission of the
Beaumont Lymphedemic Clinic. Patients are seen on the second and fourth
Thursdays of each month. Our Physician Director, who is a specialist in lymphedema, evaluates each patient in person.
The clinic’s hours are 8 – 11:30 a.m. Patients are
referred, as needed, to the Royal Oak and Troy physical therapy
departments for lymphedema management.
We also provide four educational sessions per year at the Cancer
Center at Beaumont, Royal Oak. These sessions provide in-depth
lymphedema information to patients regarding:
Topics specific to breast cancer are also discussed. These include
post-mastectomy pain syndrome, shoulder dysfunction and axillary
syndromes. We encourage all patients at high risk for lymphedema or now
diagnosed with it to attend these sessions. Though lymphedema can be distressing, together we can help prevent and effectively manage it.
