The doctors and specialists of The Vascular Center at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, provide individualized treatment for patients with lymphedema caused by infection, lymph system blockage or cancer treatment.
Lymphedema refers to the chronic swelling that affects the arms or legs. Lymphedema is caused by a blockage in your lymphatic system, responsible for removing harmful bacteria and waste within the circulatory systems.
