Lymphedema Treatment and Cancer Rehabilitation

St. John Medical Center is proud to have Christine Zitello OTR/L, CLT, LMT, occupational therapist, on our team. She treats patients at St. John Medical Center’s Lymphedema Clinic. Recognized for her excellent results with complex patients, Christine has more than ten years of experience in treating upper extremity, lower extremity and truncal lymphedema. She was certified in 2007 by Guenter Klose, whose work was instrumental in establishing the field of lymphedema training and therapy throughout the United States. Prior to joining St. John Medical Center, Christine treated inpatients and outpatients at a Cleveland Clinic hospital.

Together with physical therapist Diane Washburn, Christine recently completed the STAR (Survivorship Training and Rehabilitation) Program® certification for cancer rehab. With Christine and Diane on our staff, we are confident we can meet the needs of all patients with cancer – whether they underwent treatment two months ago or ten years ago.

Christine and Diane’s office is conveniently located in the Physical and Occupational Therapy Department at St. John Medical Center’s Family Medical Building at 26908 Detroit Road. In addition, Christine is able to consult on patients who are admitted to the hospital.
