6th Lymph Clinic Day Wolfsberg

Surgical treatment options of lymphoedema

23.04.2021 - 24.04.2021 - Wolfsberg, Austria

Simultaneous translation into: German and English

Dear Sir or Madam, 
Dear Colleagues, 

I am looking forward to welcoming you to the 6th Lymph Clinic Day in Wolfsberg. 

This year, the conference will take place in the Wolfsberg KUSS (KUlturStadtSäle), about 10 minutes' walk from the Lymph Clinic. As part of this series of events, our aim is to discuss various topics relevant to the treatment of patients suffering from lymphoedema. 

Today we are discussing the topic of the “Possibilities for surgical treatment of lymphoedema,” focussing on patient selection and long-term results. We hope to provide you with useful information and suggestions for everyday practice.

Due to the international participants and speakers, English / German simultaneous interpretation will be offered. 

We have scheduled the event for Friday evening and Saturday morning only, to avoid putting a strain on your limited time. There will, however, be enough time for personal networking and exchanging of experiences. 

I look forward to all of the interesting presentations and animated discussions.
