Thank you for your continued interest in our monthly eNews.
Dr. Reid reviewed and comments on a very large lymphedema survey of over 2000 Danish woman.

Development in self-reported arm-lymphedema in Danish women treated for early-stage breast cancer in 2005 and 2006 - A nationwide follow-up study
There are nearly 3,000,000 breast cancer survivors in the United States and lymphedema is one of the most concerning complications of breast cancer therapy. Lymphedema impacts many aspects of a woman's daily life, including family social activities. In addition, lymphedema can affect a woman's sense of well-being and body image.

Because of the fundamental impact that lymphedema can have, it is important to have good information concerning the incidence and severity of the lymphedema.

Ask Kelly

Dear Kelly,

I have a prescription from my doctor (after recommendation from my therapist) for one of your compression garments.  I am going to be in California in August, is it possible to be seen at your office?

Thanks in advance, Juliette (you can use my name)

Dear Juliette,

Yes!  While we have authorized providers all over the country, we do on-site measuring, fitting and insurance billing.  We have folks travel from all over the country (and internationally) to come to our office.  We have on site certified fitters.  Please email me or call us toll free to set-up a time.  Most of the time we can expedite the custom order and measure you in the morning and fit you the same day or the next day (depending on the difficulty of the pattern).  We look forward to hearing from you!
