Welcome to ShechterCare

ShechterCare is the only privately owned physical rehabilitation Practice in New York City that is solely dedicated to treating women and men who have had breast cancer surgery resulting in lymphedema, swelling, scar tissue and range of motion issues. In addition, we also treat primary lower extremity swelling, venous insufficiency and secondary lower extremity lymphedema. These conditions can result from lymph node removal, damage due to cancer, radiation therapy and trauma. Our patients have unique needs and require special emotional as well as physical support. Therefore, we provide a private, comforting environment in which patients may interact with individuals that have had similar life experiences. Patients find this exclusivity very reassuring and aides in the healing process.
