North Carolina Lymphedema Therapists

The following is a list of lymphedema therapists in North Carolina. We do not guarantee that this is a complete list of all lymphedema therapists in North Carolina. Check with your local hospital, cancer center or rehabilitation center for additional therapists.

Lymphedema Training and Certification Programs

LeDuc (6 days of training), Klose-Norton (12 days),Lerner (14 days), Casley-Smith (14 days), American Academy of Lymphatic Studies (ACOLS)(14 days),Foldi (20 days), and Vodder (20 days). Some programs teach Vodder “techniques,” but only therapists who have completed the 20-day program are “Vodder credentialed.”

Recently, the Lymphology Association of North America (LANA) began certifying lymphedema therapists who also passed a comprehensive national exam, have a minimum of 135 hours of training in Complete Decongestive Therapy, and at least one year of work experience. These therapists have “CLT-LANA” after their names.

If you have questions about the trainings, call the National Lymphedema Network at 800.541.3259 or see
