Congress language: German with simultaneous interpreting to English

Dear colleagues and friends of lymphology, 

Lymphology comprises an extensive interdisciplinary and interprofessional field. That is why our 2nd Swiss Lymphology Symposium will also be very varied.

The main topic will be the condition of lipoedema. Everyone is currently talking about lipoedema and there are regular articles in the press. Compared with this, however, the state of relevant studies and established findings are somewhat rare from a medical and scientific perspective. This is why we would like to focus on the condition of lipoedema in all its aspects, from a patient’s perspective, both current non-surgical treatment as well as surgical treatment options. We also want to discuss the condition as a form of chronic pain disorder as well as the consequences of obesity in our society. 

Primary or hereditary lymphoedema as well as lymphatic malformations in young people will also be a central part of the Symposium. These are rare, even for specialists, and we would like to provide you with a greater understanding of the aspects of this condition.

I look forward to an exciting day of in-service training and to many participants joining the discussions.

 

Best wishes, 
Dr. med. Stephan Wagner
