The UCHealth Lymphedema Clinic at Longs Peak Hospital provides therapeutic treatment of lymphedema for the Longmont and Carbon Valley regions.

At the Lymphedema Clinic, we focus on your education and active participation in therapy. Our team of lymphedema specialists can help with conditions related to cancer treatment, such as lymph node dissection, surgery or radiation. These treatments can cause pain, swelling, limited movement, and lymphedema.

We also treat chronic edema and the effects of chronic venous insufficiency. Our goal is to partner with you to restore, as completely as possible, your abilities – and to regain your independence
