Contact the Lymphedema Program

The Lymphedema Program in the Department of Plastic Surgery at Boston Children's Hospital offers individuals of all ages with lymphedema interdisciplinary care. Staffed by plastic and reconstructive surgeons with expertise in the management of lymphedema, the program provides consultation, diagnostic services, treatment options, and research opportunities.

Patients have access to specialists in plastic surgery, nuclear medicine, radiology and rehabilitation. With these resources, the program provides evaluation, diagnosis and treatment options. The team also is working to develop improved treatments for lymphedema through clinical and basic science research.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
