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. There will also soon be a lymphedema clinic available for patients at Beaumont, Troy. 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.
