Health Notes from
Dr. Van Wyk
As a breast cancer survivor, are you living with hand or upper extremity impairments due to outdated medical assumptions?
After axillary lymph node dissection for the treatment of malignancies, patients have been cautioned to avoid procedures on the ipsilateral upper extremity to avoid risks of infections, wound healing complications, and lymphedema.
Despite changes in breast cancer treatment, recommendations and precautions regarding lymphedema and procedures in the ipsilateral arm have been ingrained in patients as well as physicians. Patients might chose to live with a painful but treatable condition, or physicians themselves might discourage patients from having an elective surgery, even in the absence of lymphedema. Thus patients often forego surgeries for hand and upper extremity conditions, though there is little data in the literature and no consensus in the recommendations for these patients. Learn more about twenty years of research that can put your mind at ease, and lead you to the relief you seek.
No. Although Dr. Van Wyk is trained as an orthopedic hand and arm surgeon, many of the conditions he treats do not require surgery. Once you have been diagnosed both you and Dr. Van Wyk will determine the appropriate treatment plan.
