Lymphedema Treatment | Atlanta Area

The most effective treatment for Lymphedema is Complete Decongestive Therapy, also known as CDT. CDT consists of a combination of hygiene/topical skin care, manual lymphatic drainage, bandaging/compression, and remedial exercises. During CDT, patients will undergo two phases of treatment.

1. Intensive phase

2. Treatment phase

This will consist of compression garments during the day, meticulous skin and nail care, exercises, and MLD as needed.  See our Compression Fitting page for more information on compression garments.
