Lymphology consultation

The lymphology consultation is aimed at patients with diseases of the lymphatic system. The functionality of the lymphatic system can be restricted by genetic malformations, injuries, surgical interventions or radiation.

The focus of the lymphology consultation is on diagnosis, treatment and prevention. As a first point of contact, we offer our patients a comprehensive range of services for assessing the situation and planning treatment for their lymphological condition. An essential part of the diagnosis is a detailed medical history. Physical examination, preparation of measurement findings, including optoelectronic volume measurement, supplemented by microlymphography, lead to a description of the lymphological clinical picture.

Advice and information for patients are particularly important to us. Depending on the findings, we provide our patients with physical decongestive therapy in the form of manual lymph drainage, compression bandaging and custom-made compression stockings.

In addition to conservative therapy, we also offer the complete spectrum of surgical lymphatic surgery. Together with the patient, a holistic treatment concept is developed that is geared towards both the clinical picture and the individual needs of those affected.

Interdisciplinary consultation hour

We offer an interdisciplinary consultation for lymphological complaints on Wednesdays by appointment together with Prof. N. Lindenblatt (Plastic Surgery USZ) and Mr. Stefan Kern (lymph therapy specialist).
