This area of rehabilitation is for patients who are dealing with lymphedema, fatigue or loss of functional skills following cancer. The program is staffed by specially trained therapists who are nationally certified to provide the best care for each patient.
Specialized Programs and Services

Speech-language Pathology: Specializes in patients who have experienced head and neck cancer. Treatment focuses on strengthening, retraining in voice, swallowing skills and communication before and after a laryngectomy.
After receiving a physician’s order, the appropriate therapist will evaluate to determine the areas of deficit and develop a treatment for the patient to meet goals for improvement.
