Spiritual Support

Lymphedema Therapy Program 

Lymphedema, a lifelong condition, is an accumulation of fluid that causes swelling in the arms or legs. Untreated, lymphedema may interfere with wound healing and provide a culture medium for bacteria and fungus that may lead to serious infection. SRMC offers complete decongestive physiotherapy (CDP), which is the most effective treatment for Lymphedema management. Therapies include manual lymphatic drainage, compression therapy, remedial exercise and patient exercise. For more information, call (615) 328-5502.

 

 

Clinical Trials 

Numerous clinical trial opportunities are available to oncology patients that meet enrollment criteria. SRMC’s medical oncology service is offered through Tennessee Oncology Group. They have a full-time clinical trials nurse dedicated to Clinical Trials and work in conjunction with the Sarah Cannon Cancer Center. In 2006, The National Cancer Comprehensive Network stated, “The best care for any patient with cancer is in a clinical trial.” For more information, call the TN Oncology office at (615) 451-5481.
