8th Scar Symposium

Innovative scar therapy in an interdisciplinary and interprofessional context

30.10.2021 - Dresden, Germany

Dear colleagues and 
other interested individuals, 

As was the case last year, the pandemic and the associated restrictions have had a major impact on our daily activities so far this year as well. It remains the case that hardly any conferences, symposia or further education events are taking place, and all of us continue to get more and more used to the digital world. Our Scar Symposium, for example, was held as a completely virtual event last year. 

For this year’s Scar Symposium, we will be focusing on four thematic areas: the hand, amputations and prothetic care, lipoedema from a plastic surgery point of view and obesity. Work in these areas ranges from basic research and genetics to the application of the latest medical standards and new medical techniques and the development of treatments for the future. Improvements in terms of form and function need to be incorporated into a carefully considered follow-up treatment approach and an effective rehabilitation concept. Interdisciplinary and interprofessional cooperation is extremely important in all of these areas, but it also presents a major challenge. 

Our patients trust us to provide them with the best possible medical care and rehabilitation programmes, and our goal is to ensure the best possible quality of life for our patients. So join us for a look at the possibilities and perspectives of modern scar therapy and use this established symposium as a platform to meet colleagues, have discussions and establish new networks. 

We would like to thank our partners and speakers, and we look forward to an exciting and eventful day. 

Best wishes and stay healthy

Dr. med. Bernd Hartmann,
Univ.- Prof. Dr. med. habil. Adrian Dragu,
und Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Frank Siemers
