11th Munich Lymphology Symposium

Lymphology meets scar therapy

10.07.2021 - Munich, Germany

Dear colleagues and friends of lymphology, 

The impact of the corona virus pandemic on our professional, social and private lives is omnipresent. It does not shy away from in-service training courses either which is why our Lymphology Symposium, planned for the middle of 2020, needed to be postponed to 2021.

Lymphology is a subject with many peripheral areas. It demands expertise from different medical disciplines. That is why medical experts as well as therapists and care specialists from these subject areas are always integrated in our training courses so that you can be up-to-date with the latest treatment options for your patients.

This year, we want to examine the aspects of soft tissue scarring and its impact on the development, progression and, most of all, treatment of lymphoedema: scars that develop, for example after trauma, caused by surgical tissue defects or as a radioderm from radiation treatment in cases of oncological conditions and are connected with lymphoedema.

As part of the Online-Symposium, each participant can follow the lectures, ask questions online and also has the opportunity to re-watch the lectures in the media library for two weeks. I am therefore pleased to invite you to the 11th Munich Lymphology Symposium.

You can look forward to inspiring presentations, valuable discussions and, above all, an informative interdisciplinary exchange.

Dr. med. Michaela Knestele

Sincerely yours

Dr. med. Michaela Knestele
