Treatment of Lymphoedema
Our main focus at AHLP is the treatment of lymphoedema. Lymphoedema is the accumulation of a protein rich fluid in the tissues caused by an interruption of the lymphatic flow. This can be due to genetic abnormality, surgery, trauma or cancer treatments. It can affect the limbs, trunk, head and neck or genital area.View Treatments
