Breast Surgery Services
We offer a comprehensive program to assist breast cancer patients in successfully
completing their recovery after surgery and resuming their normal activities.
Working with skilled therapists, patients can decrease pain and stiffness
and increase use of their arms and shoulders while preventing further
development of scar tissue or adhesions.
Program advantages include:
- Extensive education is provided, covering physical care and medical precautions
- Patients learn exercises to increase mobility and strength
- All services are provided one-on-one
We’re extremely proud that former participants report that their
self esteem and emotional outlook improved as a result of the support
and education they received.
Joining the Program
Any woman who has undergone a mastectomy, lumpectomy or reconstructive
procedure is eligible for the Post-Mastectomy Program.
Therapy can begin as soon as sutures are removed, and progress is faster
and more complete if a patient begins therapy within the first six weeks
after surgery. If you are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy,
treatment can be modified as necessary.
A physician referral is required. Have your doctor call 303-415-4400 or
