Treatment for lymphedema and breast cancer is constantly evolving. The Chicago Breast Symposium and 7th World Symposium on Lymphedema Surgery will challenge through discussion and demonstration on how to best treat breast cancer; on how to recognize, understand and treat lymphedema; and on how to optimize breast reconstruction outcome.


For seven years, Co-Chairs Drs. Julie Park and David Chang as well as Program Director, Dr. Nora Jaskowiak, have provided example to symposium registrants on multidisciplinary care strategies as well as cultivated ideas on current therapies and discussion on lymphedema, breast cancer and breast reconstruction. We are also excited to have Dr. Rebecca Garza joining as our Program Director for lymphedema and Thomas Rosinski as our Program Director for physical therapy.
