Dr Josef Stutz
Key Note Speaker Lipedema 101- Not All Fat is Created Equal
In his presentation, Dr Stutz will focus on diagnosis and treatment including etiology and diagnostic criteria; differentiating lipedema from obesity,lymphedema, and other adipose disorders; complications and co-morbidities; and conservative and operative therapy, including a detailed explanation of WAL therapeutic liposuction.
Dr. Stutz is a vascular surgeon who has been successfully treating lipedema with liposuction for twenty years. He pioneered the use of water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL), a method which had been previously used for surgery on soft tissues such as the brain and liver. Using WAL, Dr. Stutz is able to operate even on late-stage lipo-lymphedema patients.
He is a frequent speaker at medical conferences on lipedema, and regularly collaborates with colleagues to demonstrate his techniques. His wife Jutta assists him in his practice in Bavaria.
