We are an interdisciplinary medical society with the aim to further develop biophotonic and laser medical procedures, to make them known and to bring them into use for the benefit of the patients. In doing so, we always keep an eye on practical relevance and regulatory requirements. It is of great concern to us to provide well-founded training and continuing education opportunities for physicians, medical physicists and medical personnel.
With their different wavelengths and power densities, lasers offer unique possibilities in the diagnosis and therapy of numerous clinical pictures. From ophthalmology to urology and dentistry, they provide cost-effective and rapid treatments with short recovery times. In cosmetic surgery, they make scars and tattoos disappear. In research, they help to achieve breakthroughs, for instance in the intraoperative differentiation of tumor marginal tissue.
It is a long road from basic research to the clinic. It is a focus of our work to accompany this journey and help the players overcome obstacles and master challenges.
A sound education as well as continuous training are crucial for the optimal use of innovative technologies in laser medicine and biophotonics in patient care.
Communication both internally and outwardly is key to the success of our work. We have the various target groups firmly in mind and offer them tailored information and event formats.
The future lies in the next generation. Therefore, shaping the future must involve today's students. The goals and tasks are defined by the committee, taking into account the goals of the DGLM itself.
