The lymphology unit provides care for patients at the Eugène Marquis Centre who are experiencing post-treatment lymphoedema. Lymphoedema causes swelling in an area of the body following the accumulation of lymph fluid in the connective tissue.
Our lymphology unit comprises trained medical and paramedical professionals (including a physiotherapist with a degree in lymphology from the University of Montpellier) who, in collaboration with independent physiotherapists, provide care for patients at the Centre who are experiencing post-treatment lymphoedema.
An initial consultation with the Centre’s physiotherapist and, occasionally, a doctor is held to discuss their personal care pathway.
Physiotherapy may be prescribed, to be provided by an independent physiotherapist.
Follow-up consultations may be scheduled at the Centre as required to adjust the patient’s care.
Private and group workshops:
Since 2013, the lymphology unit has offered annual training for independent physiotherapists, in cooperation with the Eugène Marquis Training Institute (IFOREM) [Institut de Formation du CEM].
