Ellis Fischel Cancer Center and MD Anderson

Cancer Rehabilitation

Each person who is newly diagnosed with cancer or is following treatment for cancer has unique needs. The cancer rehabilitation and wellness program at Ellis Fischel Cancer Center focuses on minimizing or preventing some of the side effects of cancer and its treatment. Cancer rehabilitation helps individuals become stronger, more mobile and independent and can alleviate the side effects of treatment such as fatigue, pain, scarring, nausea and even cognitive issues (chemo brain). Education and specialized treatment for lymphedema is also a provided service.
