5th Phlebology Symposium (online symposium)

Living phlebology: tried and tested methods as well as innovations for practical application

07.11.2020 - Mönchengladbach, Germany

Dear Colleagues and Friends of Phlebology, 

You are cordially invited to the 5th Phlebology Symposium in Mönchengladbach. 

Owing to the coronavirus pandemic, 2020 has thrown our professional, social and private lives into unprecedented chaos. The pandemic raises a lot of questions about our previous normality and significantly restricts our usual contacts and encounters. Many opportunities for further professional development have also been cancelled. 

With the Phlebology Symposium, we’d like to try and carefully make up for this, while complying with all specified measures, enabling you to continue developing your expertise and exchange ideas with colleagues under the aforementioned guiding theme in the field of phlebology. 

Topics will include laser treatment, lipoedema, thrombosis and treatment options for varicose veins that focus on quality of life as well as differentiated diagnostics. The Symposium aims at providing you with in-service training relevant to practical application by presenting case reports, new aspects from guidelines and specific tips for your everyday work. 

Our goal is to provide comprehensive insight into current phlebological topics to doctors in hospitals, subsidiaries and those returning to the field as well as medical staff. 

I look forward to welcoming you to the online symposium!


Sincerly yours, 
Tobias Görge


Yours faithfully, Eberhard Rabe
