Lymphoedema Service

Lymphoedema is a swelling that occurs when the lymphatic system does not drain fluid properly. It can affect any part of the body but is most often seen in the arms or legs.

Lymphoedema management requires specialist intervention and our dedicated therapy staff provide a personalised care plan for each patient.

The innovative approach we take ensures we remain at the forefront of current developments in the management of lymphoedema. Bupa Cromwell Hospital invests heavily in modern technology and staff development to support a cutting edge and modern approach to treatment.
