Oncology Rehabilitation for Bile Duct Cancer
Bile duct cancer and its treatment can affect your physical functioning and overall energy.

As part of your bile duct cancer oncology rehabilitation program, our physical therapists can help you design an individualized exercise program that combines range-of-motion training with light resistance exercises to minimize your fatigue and optimize your physical function.
Our occupational therapists can help you with daily living activities that are important to your routine and quality of life, such as dressing, showering and eating.
Speech and Language Pathology
Many bile duct cancer patients who receive chemotherapy benefit from speech and language pathology. Therapists address problems such as dry mouth, difficulty swallowing, loss of voice and cognitive changes that can result from cancer treatment.
