New Options for Managing Lymphedema

New Options for Managing Lymphedema

About This Campaign

'Lymphedema occurs when the lymph system is damaged or blocked. Fluid builds up in soft body tissues and causes swelling. It is a common problem that may be caused by cancer and cancer treatment. Lymphedema usually affects an arm or leg, but it can also affect other parts of the body. Lymphedema can cause long-term physical, psychological, and social problems for patients."

We invite you to attend an information session on vascularized lymph node transfer, lymphovenous bypass and liposuction for long-term lymphedema management presented by Dr. Pankaj Tiwari of Midwest Breast and Aesthetic Surgery.

It is exciting to know that more options are available for those dealing with lymphedema. Dr. Tiwari and his colleagues are performing these procedures so he will be able to share valuable information and answer questions during his presentation.

Light snacks and drinks will be provided.
Seating is limited so please RSVP.
