Oedema Services

We aim to impact the community and our patients by not only providing medical solutions, but also going one step further and offering education, advice and other supportive services such as payment plans to help everyone in the community equally.

Garment fitting and advice

Medical compression garments come in different classes and sizes. At the Oedema Institute, we use garments made in Switzerland by Sigvaris. We have a large supply of both circular and flat knit garments made specifically for patients who are suffering from symptoms of vascular insufficiency. We aim to provide patients with stockings for their individual needs.

Education/Research

The education of both patients and health professionals will play a large role at the Oedema Institute. Protocols and treatment methods change constantly in lymphoedema, lipoedema and oedema associated with vascular disease. Here at the institute, provisions have been made with our multipurpose training and education room to accommodate and present a host of educational sessions. These are available for both health professionals, students and patients.
