Lymphoedema Clinic

Welcome to the ALERT Program at Macquarie University

The ALERT (Australian Lymphoedema Education, Research and Treatment) team at Macquarie University Hospital consists of experienced health professionals coming together to form a comprehensive clinical and research service. The team aims to optimise positive outcomes for people living with lymphoedema through excellence in assessment and management of the condition along the continuum.

Our lymphoedema program offers management of all types and stages of lymphoedema, supported by research and education initiatives, to provide the best service to our patients.

We are home to diagnostic, conservative and surgical lymphoedema clinics. It is our goal to provide our patients with a comprehensive service that best suits their individual situation.
