Lymphedema is a highly under-diagnosed condition that affects the lymphatic vessels. Lymphedema is swelling, usually in the arms or legs that occur as a result of an impaired lymphatic system. If you have had a mastectomy, lumpectomy, radiation treatment, lymph node removal, surgeries, infections or trauma to the limbs, you may be at risk for developing lymphedema. If lymph nodes are removed or if you have experienced radiation, you will be at risk for developing lymphedema. In some people, swelling starts immediately after surgery or radiation. In others, it may not occur until years later.
Your doctor can best evaluate the cause of any post-surgical swelling. If you are diagnosed with lymphedema, we recommend seeing a trained MLD therapist or doctor specializing in lymphedema. He will determine what is best for your specific treatment - which may include elevation/exercise, day and/or night time compression garments, wraps and/or a lymphedema pump. Our fitters are highly trained to measure and instruct you on how to wear and use all of these products.

Gradient compression applies a measured amount of compression to your leg as the basis for management of venous conditions. Gradient compression stockings apply the highest amount of pressure at the ankle and gradually decrease up the length of the stocking. This helps the blood in your veins to flow in the right direction - back toward your heart - even if your veins and valves are damaged. Gradient compression therapy helps manage and prevent the progression of various vein related diseases.
Medical gradient compression stockings come in various strengths. Your health care professional will prescribe or recommend the right level for your condition. Stockings are available in different lengths from knee high to waist high, and are designed for men and women in different colors and styles.
