Dear Dr. Scholbach,

Thank you so much for everything today. I still can’t believe I got a diagnosis after all this time, I so appreciate it…..Thank you so much again,

Best wishes,

Patient from Ireland, February 2024

Hello,   My name is…. I met with you about two years ago and had a very successful surgery with Prof Sandmann during that trip. After returning home I felt inspired by the technique you used with ultrasound to diagnose me. Since recovering I have decided to return to school to get a certification in cardiovascular ultrasound in the United States. I am hoping that after graduating I will be able to come study your technique and help more people in the US.   I am applying to the school program Thursday of this week….

Patient from NewZealand,  February 2024

Hello to you and greetings from Lebanon County, Pennsylvania!  I think of you all many times and wanted to write to you. I am so happy to tell you that I am enjoying wonderful health! I have never felt this good in all my life. I just feel so amazing and hardly have any pain!!  It is so exciting to feel good and be able to act “normal”!! I didn’t know it was possible to feel like this!  Thank you all so much for all you did for me at your clinic and for helping to give my health back to me! You were very kind to this strange American😉!  I am now able to work again and even though I have to stop and take little rests, I am so glad to be able to work without pain!  I eat like a pig now, and my neighbor lady says she could cry for joy when she sees my plate of food. She said she used to rejoice if she got me to eat half a banana. Two weeks after I returned home from Germany, I went to one of our Bible Schools for youth, to work in the kitchen for 3 weeks. We fed about 120 people three times a day. That was a big job, and I wasn’t feeling very good then yet. I am happy to be able to live at my own little house again by myself, take care of my adopted Grandma who is in bed all the time, work at a bakery two days a week, volunteer at a bookstore and at an old people’s home, and I also took on the housekeeping at my neighbors. It keeps me busy to make food for ten people, do all the laundry and cleaning and more. 5 farmer men make a lot of dirt and need a lot of food!😁 but I love my work! I also have time for some extra hobbies like sewing blankets for other countries, editing books, and learning the German language. (yup, go ahead and laugh at me!😂I should have learned it BEFORE I came to the hospital, right? I’m afraid I made life hard for you.) I am sending you some photos of my life now…If any of you ever get to Pennsylvania, look me up at… Richland, PA 17087 😉… Thank you again for all you did for me!! I very much appreciate it! God bless you all!  So grateful, ….

Dear Professor Scholbach,

You really have been incredible in helping to solve my case.    I am so lucky to have the expertise of two world class professors.   Kind regards,

Ich bin mittlerweile 2 mal Operiert worden und mir geht es deutlich besser…..da Sie mir schon einmal sehr geholfen haben und Sie mich mit meinen Beschwerden Ernst genommen haben . Dafür bin ich Ihnen für immer sehr sehr Dankbar. Es ist alles genauso eingetreten wie Sie es Untersucht und auch niedergeschrieben haben. Ich vertraue sehr auf Ihre Ärztliche Meinung ,daher die überlegung . Gerne schicke ich Ihnen auch wenn benötigt meine OP Berichte zu.

Patient from Germany,  January 2024

Professor Scholbach…..hello! I suppose you remember me and my recent visits and ultrasounds in your office. I am extremely grateful to you for your help and am so thankful to be enjoying good health. I hardly know if i ever felt this well in all my life! I still tire easily but am so so thankful to be feeling much better…..Please know I am forever grateful to you for

diagnosing me and being a helping hand in getting my life back. Doctors here had given up on me and told me there was nothing wrong (except maybe psychologically.)  I pray God will bless you abundantly.


Patient from the USA,  January 2024

“If you are questioning whether it is worth it to go to Germany even just strictly for diagnostic purposes with Prof. Scholbach, I highly encourage you to. I gathered more answers and information with Prof. Scholbach in merely one hour than I had gathered in ten years of seeing doctors back home. It’s worth it. He will get you answers, and you can have confidence knowing he looked at absolutely everything, from all positions, and during all states of an empty vs. full stomach. ”

Besten Dank für Ihren äusserst ausführlichen Befund.   …Auch Ihnen alles Gute!   Beste Grüsse

Patient from Switzerland,  January 2024

Dear Professor Scholbach,   Thank you for your email of the report and thank you so much for everything today. I will forever be grateful for you taking the time and actually caring to find out what is really going on inside my body. I have never encountered a specialist that has genuinely cared the way that you do and I appreciate that more than you will ever know! Today has given me hope for the future for the first time in over 15 years.    I honestly cannot thank you enough and I cannot explain how much today has meant to me.    Thanks again for everything.   Kindest Regards

Patient from UK, January 2024

Sehr geehrter Herr Professor Scholbach,

vielen Dank für Ihre Zeit heute und wiedereinmal für die aufschlussreiche, hilfreiche und professionelle Untersuchung. Ich bin immer ganz baff, was Sie alles erkennen können und wie sehr das dann zutrifft und meine Beschwerden erklärt. Danke….

Ich hatte das Bedürfnis, Ihnen das im Nachhinein doch noch mitzuteilen.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Patient from Germany,  January 2024

Sehr geehrter Herr Prof. Dr. Scholbach,    haben Sie tausend Dank für die schnelle Rückmeldung – so konnte ich schon auf der Heimfahrt aufhören zu grübeln und zu zweifeln.    Ich möchte mich wirklich vielmals bei Ihnen bedanken, dass Sie mich ernst genommen haben und ich mich bei Ihnen gehört, gut aufgehoben und wohlfühlen konnte. Dass etwas zu finden war, das als “Antwort” plausibel erscheint, bringt mich ein riesiges Stück weiter und verschafft vor allem Erleichterung.     Ich wünsche Ihnen ein schönes Wochenende.

Herzliche Grüße,

Patient from Germany on her birthday,  December 2023


Patient from New Zealand,  November 2023

Sehr geehrter Herr Prof. Dr. Scholbach,  vielen Dank für die schnelle Zusendung des Befundes und der Rechnung.  Außerdem möchte mich nochmals für die beeindruckende gestrige Untersuchung bedanken und dass Sie so geduldig zugehört und alles so erklärt haben, dass es für uns verständlich war. Ich bin sehr dankbar für Ihr außerordentliches Engagement für Patientinnen und Patienten wie mich!   Vieles, was Sie uns gestern erläutert haben, war mir völlig neu, bei einigen Aspekten hatte ich schon vorher Vermutungen in die gleiche Richtung. Nach all den Jahren neu und nachvollziehbar war für mich die Vorstellung von Beckengefäßkompressionen als Ursache für eine Endometriose.  Da mich alle Auswirkungen dieser Beckengefäßsyndrome sehr belasten, werde ich Ihren Empfehlungen für die weitere Behandlung folgen   .. Herzliche Grüße aus ..

Patient from Germany,  November 2023

Sehr geehrter Herr Prof. Dr. Scholbach,   vielen herzlichen Dank, für die schnelle Zusendung Ihres sehr ausführlichen Befundberichts und die sich daraus ergebenden Therapieempfehlungen.   …  Ich bin Ihnen sehr dankbar, das ich so zeitnah einen Termin bei Ihnen bekommen konnte und das Sie so eine zeitaufwendige umfangreiche Untersuchung durchgeführt haben. Nach einer Odyssee von Arztbesuchen und Klinikaufenthalten sind Sie der erste Arzt, der so eine gründliche Anamnese durchgeführt und die Zusammenhänge meiner zahlreichen Symptome gesehen hat. Bisher konnte noch kein anderer Arzt die Ursachen meiner heftigen Beschwerden herausfinden. Schon die Erstellung der Symptomliste, auf welcher über 200 Fragen gestellt werden, ist einzigartig und zeugt davon das Sie die verschiedenen Körperfunktionen in Zusammenhängen sehen.   Danke für Ihre hohe fachliche Kompetenz und Hilfe.   Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Patient from Germany,  November 2023

Dear Professor Scholbach,

From the moment we walked through the door yesterday, we could not believe that you had put so much time and thought into my case, re-examining all of my previous scans before you had even met me.    You instantly commented that ‘thinking’ was a key component in solving my case. For my whole life, I have been treated as a ‘textbook’ patient when my symptoms have never presented as such. Thinking was exactly what I needed!    During the scan, your expertise and meticulous attention to detail was evident. You explained every step of the scan to us but were insistent that the science must prove your theory. When your scan evidenced your hypothesis (from my previous scan) and solved the puzzle that has baffled medics for years, we could not contain our overwhelming relief and excitement.    It is hard for people who have not suffered with a chronic illness to understand but I am at heart a very happy girl who has been living a truly miserable life for so long and I have been desperate for a positive result to prove my symptoms. I read English at Oxford University and now do not work, drive or read.    Last year, I spent 3 months in a London hospital in the Acute Medical Unit and was discharged with no diagnosis on ‘comfort care’. I was told every test had been done. After my discharge, I was told by one top London consultant to ‘give up and stop searching for a diagnosis’ and that I must ‘accept‘ that this was my life.   My mum never accepted this and her relentless research led us to you.    To find out yesterday that I have been living with a massive renal compression, as well as jugular compressions in my neck which explain the plethora of symptoms including tremor, muscle spasms, flank pain, paralysis, 24/7 headaches, a disparity in symptoms on lying and standing, bizarre facial swelling that has baffled every medic I have met and a list of medications that keeps getting longer without treating anything, really is amazing.    Yesterday we left with an answer, proving my mum’s sentiment that ‘giving up is never an option’.   I very much look forward to hearing from you next week about booking in with Professor Sandmann for surgery.   Then, as you said, after that, I will be able to start my life!   I attach the photo of me getting to hit the gong – what a moment! Please do, of course, feel free to share this and my testimonial.    With very best wishes,

Patient from UK, November 2023

Sehr geehrter Herr Prof. Scholbach,

am 6.6.2023 war ich in Ihrer Praxis und Sie haben bei mir 2 Gefäßkompressionen festgestellt.  …Nach einem persönlichen Gespräch wurde ich am 18.8.2023 .. operiert… Ich habe die Operation gut überstanden und bin mit dem Ergebnis sehr zufrieden. Meine Schmerzen bei Belastung sind bis jetzt weg, toll.  Ich danke Ihnen nochmals für die Untersuchung und die ausführliche Diagnose.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

81 years old patient from Germany,  November 2023

17 years old patient from NewZealand, October 2023 – she came in a wheelchair inable to walk and eat or drink, vomited all the food applied via a naso-jejunal tube and now returns home walking 1 km and eating and drinking wihout pain or vomiting, only 4 weeks after decompression of the duodenum, the celiac trunk, the left renal and the left common iliac vein

My update for you on … is: She is 6 months post surgery. She has achieved weight gain to pre illness weight and her BMI is in the healthy range. She is back at school and now she is tap dancing, her legs are all restored of feeling.

(Before the operation she required a wheelchair -inserted by Th. Scholbach).

She is very happy. She has mild back ache, abdominal pain and nausea but this is improving every month that passes. She still has some bad headaches but they are much less. We are so grateful to you both and now we are trying to share with doctors in New Zealand and other patients about abdominal compression syndromes. I believe you have had many patients from New Zealand … and I enjoy hearing from them when they visit you both and you help them also.

Hi Prof Scholbach,

It was lovely to see you this afternoon! I have attached the operation report and the discharge summary from the clinic.

I am pleased to say that …the abdominal pain and tightness has reduced and the genital and rectal pain has stopped ?  …- thank you so much for your care, time, and expertise, I am looking forward to a much better life!

Vielen Dank für die Rückmeldung, ihr empathisches Auftreten, die ausführliche Untersuchung und die Unsicherheit und Fragezeichen, die beseitigt werden konnten.

Patients from USA and Iceland,  August 2023

Thank you again SO much for meeting with me in July and identifying the issues I’m dealing with!  Like so many of your patients, it has been a long search with no answers here at home other than “it’s all in your head.”  My general doctor here (who of course is not a specialist) was very apologetic after she read your report, saying “In our American health care system we just don’t have the time and training to do what Dr. Scholbach did.”  With the evidence your exam provides, I think her attitude toward me has changed and she will take my concerns more seriously in the future.

Patient from USA,  August 2023

Dr. Scholbach,

Thank you once again for the time you spent helping us find answers for our Amazing … She is such a fighter and the information you gave us helps us understand why she has been in so much pain for so many years.    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.    We are interested in coming back for testing post surgery….

With much love and gratitude,

Patient from USA,  August 2023


A small update, I’m doing okay post op, about 8 months out. MALS pain is gone, which is amazing, nutcracker and may thurner pain are very intermittent and much less intense, also amazing! ….Thank you so much!

Patient from USA, July 2023

Hello,    I wanted to give you both an update since my surgery October 7 2021.  I recovered very well and have had much relief of almost all of my symptoms. I am back attending school and have been inspired by my experience in Germany to pursue sonography/ultrasound school in hopes to help more patients in the United States. I am so grateful for you.    … Best,

Patient from USA  July 2023

Dear Thomas,    I hope you are keeping well!   I want to introduce you to my son … born 10/06/23 on his due date. He was born naturally and without too much complication other than being a very fast labour at 3hrs in total which they suspect was because of my hEds. The doctors had taken extra precautions in case of post partem haemorrhage because of my hEds and past vascular problems but overall things went well, although i did have a pph but it was controlled, and Paul is a very healthy baby weighing 7.6lb at birth.    Although it is too soon to properly judge yet, since his birth I have had little to none of my previous nutcracker symptoms that I had before pregnancy…. Pregnancy has had a positive effect on me physically and I feel healthier than I ever have and I’m now a healthy weight an eating a normal diet.   It’s hard to believe that when I first saw you 4 years ago, I was in a dire underweight state being fed through a tube and now I am healthy and have a child after a successful pregnancy, I never believed it would be possible after everything!   It is thanks to you and Professor Sandmann that I have a life now, I will never stop being grateful to you.   Kind regards,

Patient from UK, July 2023

Dr. Scholbach, thank you again for spending so much time with me today! I learned a lot and it truly is good to find some answers. I enjoyed the appointment and meeting you. ?

I will look forward to receiving your report and sharing it with my husband.

If you ever travel to Seattle, please let me know and we will take you out for a wonderful seafood dinner!

Patient from Spain, July 2023

Prof. Dr. Scholbach,     I cannot thank you enough for seeing me on such short notice. … and I are so grateful for your kindness, skill, and knowledge you shared with us. I am nervous about next steps with the new diagnosis, but comforted by the fact that now I know the full picture of what is going on. Like you said, that alone is a big relief.      We will be in touch & let you know how things go. … Stay safe and healthy.      Thank you so much.

Patient from New Zealand,  June 2023

Hello, hope you are well!
..I had surgery by you in july 2020 for may-thurner syndrome, nutcracker syndrome and MALS (I attached my surgery report). First I want to again thank you and your amazing team for giving me my life back. I am still doing amazing…..thank you from the bottom of my heart for the surgery you performed on me in 2020 and for your advise during my pregnancy. All this led me to have a beautiful unmedicated water birth in the hospital I wanted. I now have an amazing health 2 month old.

“I’m forever indebted to Professor Scholbach. Not once, but twice he has found compressions no one else could. His compassion for his patients and drive the find the cause of our pain is much more rare than the compressions and syndromes he diagnoses. The man refuses to stop until he has answers. He’ll forever hold a place in my heart.”

Patients from USA, June 2023

Dear Professor Sandmann and Scholbach!

.. is continuing to do well and we asked her doctors, …to please please come to Germany to learn from you so that the patients from New Zealand can get help in New Zealand and not told the problem is in their head!   Thank you so much for giving her life back! ….Thank you,  …

Patient from New Zealand,  June 2023

Sehr geehrter Herr Prof. Scholbach,..

Auch wenn ich mich wiederhole, ich danke Ihnen von ganzem Herzen, dass Sie Ihre Patienten ernst nehmen und versuchen Ihnen weiter zu helfen. Dank Ihrer Untersuchung habe ich eine Bestätigung und Kraft bekommen, weiter zu kämpfen. Das ist sehr viel Wert, vielen Dank!…

Patient from Germany,  June 2023

Dear Prof dr Scholbach,    I wanted to thank you for your time and for being so empathetic. I gained clarity and everything is making much more sense right now!    I never received such a comprehensive explanation and care up until now. Doctor’s always told me to exercise more and to adopt a ‘positive’mindset, and the vaginal pain has always been dismissed as a result of ‘stress’, ‘imaginary’, or even sometimes attributed to my ethnicity!   Therefore, just the mere validation of my pain during the discussion today left me deeply moved!   I wholeheartedly thank you for what you do, for your compassion and for your empathy. I wish there were more people like you!    Thank you again for sending through the results in such a short time and for everything!!  …

best regards

Patient from Bangladesh,  May 2023

Danke noch einmal für den aufschlussreichen Termin am Donnerstag. Ich war davor wirklich skeptisch, ob mir überhaupt noch zu helfen ist – Sie haben mich da definitiv eines Besseren belehrt.   Das war quasi das Puzzle-Stück, was bei mir noch gefehlt hat. Meine Kindheit, meine Jugend, alle meine ungeklärten Symptome die ich je hatte und habe – das alles macht jetzt Sinn, wirklich alles in meinem Leben macht nach diesem Termin Sinn! Endlich habe ich alle Antworten auf meine Fragen, endlich weiß ich, dass ich mir nichts davon einbilde und endlich habe ich wieder Hoffnung, dass alles besser werden kann!   Ich kann es gar nicht in Worte fassen bzw. annähernd auch nur beschreiben wie dankbar ich Ihnen bin!!!   Freundliche Grüße!

Patient from Austria, May 2023

Dear Professor Scholbach,  It was such a pleasure meeting you on Wednesday. We just can’t say how happy we are to finally have the answers!    …  Kind regards,

Patient from New Zealand,  May 2023

Once more, after my consultation I must say that when it comes to vascular compressions, you are the number one person for diagnosis!

After 7 years of struggle with 6 vascular compression syndromes and having gone through 10 procedures/surgeries, your diagnoses have changed my life. Not only have I found answers to all my questions, but also understood what was and continues to go wrong in my body and makes me live with an unbearable pain.

Thank you Prof. Dr. Scholbach for your work, support and friendlyness.

2021 – 2023

You are amazing Prof. Dr. Scholbach!?   Thank you so, so much!    Take lots of care…..

Patient from Spain, May 2023

Hey all,

I just wanted to send a message of gratitude. Taylor Doyle is today 1 year post surgery and we could not be more grateful for the care you gave her, she has her life back. Taylor is excelling. Dr Al-Khayat you will be pleased to hear her Mathematics teacher told me only yesterday she is his top math student! She has goals for her future and would like to one day become a surgeon. Thanks to all of you that will be possible! you are all such incredible people for who we owe Taylors life to!

Hello my friends!

Just wanted to send you a quick email to say “thank you so much” for helping my newfound friend ….! She is so happy with all you did for her thus far, and sounds like she is recovering well. Thank you for offering your services so that I have a place where I feel comfortable sending my friends to!
I am doing well. It is now a year since my surgery and it has been an interesting road to recovery. I am currently struggling more with inability to digest food, … They are very suspicious of MCAS (Mast Cell Activation Syndrome) and we are currently in the process of undergoing tests to determine where we go from here. Physically, though, I am doing very well and enjoying life to the next level, thanks to your help and the blessings from God who led me to you in the first place. I was out and about in the fields last week again for the first in about 15 years, which was such a breathe of fresh air and great for the soul. I have always enjoyed farm work, sitting behind the team of massive horses who tend to have their mind of their own. 🙂
Thanks again for extending your expertise to those of us who need you!
I am forever grateful for the blessing of knowing you!!
*Keep Smiling !
Patient from USA, May 2023

I truly am grateful for your expertise and time. If you knew my story you’d know I have no faith in the medical field and have extreme fear of hospitals due to trauma from several doctors and a hospital back home.  You have been so wonderful and thorough,  allowing me to be apart of my medical journey and so kind to listen to me.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Many Blessings to you,

Patient from USA, May 2023

Hallo Herr Prof. Scholbach,

wir hatten Anfrang Februar mit unserer Tochter einen Termin bei Ihnen.

Wir möchten uns ausdrücklich bei Ihnen bedanken. Das Leben unserer Tochter startet gerade neu.

Die Operation ist jetzt 5 Wochen her und langsam pendelt sich alles wieder ein. Sie kann wieder relativ normal essen und blüht langsam und stetig auf.

Endlich plant sie wieder Unternehmungen und trifft sich auch schon kurze Zeit mit Ihren Freunden.

Natürlich hat sie noch Wundschmerzen, sie betont aber immer wieder, dass diese nicht mit den vorigen Schmerzen vergleichbar sind.

Nächste Woche startet sie mit Physiotherapie und danach möchte sie wieder regelmäßig ins Fitnessstudio gehen.

All das wäre nicht möglich gewesen, wenn wir nicht Anfang Februar die 450 km zu Ihnen gefahren werden. Ehrlich gesagt, waren Sie unser letzter Strohhalm. Eine Odyssee an Arztbesuchen, Klinikaufenthalten mit diversen Tests liegt hinter uns. Aber jeder sagte uns, dass alles in Ordnung sei. Dabei hatte leider kein Arzt an Gefäßkompressionen gedacht.

Danke auch, dass Sie uns so zeitnah einen Termin in der Klinik in Düsseldorf verschafft haben. Das Team zusammen Professor Sandmann sind einfach großartig.

Wagen Sie es ja nicht irgendwann einmal in den Ruhestand zu gehen, ohne einen geeigneten Nachfolger für Ihre Arbeit zu finden. Ihre Können müssen sie unbedingt weitergeben, für unsere Tochter waren Sie der Lebensretter. Ich werde Sie uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.

Eine schönes Wochenende und Grüße aus Landshut in Bayern

Patient from Germany, May 2023

Hi Thomas scholbach,    Thank you so much for taking the time to look over my scan. I was… in shock that I was heard and listened to and everything I said was followed with validation and compassion, that is something I have been longing for and for that I can’t thank you enough. …

Thank you again for your support and compassion I wish we had more like you here.

Patient from New Zealand, May 2023

Yes, ..is doing great, thank you 🙂 !  And THANK YOU again….. she wouldn’t be where she is today if you wouldn’t have been there for her 🙂

We are so thankful….❤?…

We are so grateful for no suffering of pain anymore?.

So overall …is doing well and very enthusiastic about eating healthy and doing everything she can to take care of herself, to heal as best as she can and to regain strength.  …is actually amazing and so determined 🙂 .

So a little update of ..- 🙂  She sends you a big hug ❤ 🙂

We hope you are well,

Thank you very much, Dr. Scholbach, I am very pleased to have the opportunity to meet and consult with you!  🙂   A Happy Easter to you! I love Palermo, I hope you are having a relaxing time.   ….

p.s.: I have enjoyed reading all of your happy patients’ testimonials and looking at the photos on your website. You look like a fun person! The photos remind me of a picture of me and my cardiac surgeon the morning after he implanted my first pacemaker (which happened in Crete, Greece!)  I felt so alive again and so happy and so was my surgeon, both of us all smiles.  🙂

Dear prof. Scholbach, Thomas,

I want to Thank you for the appointment two weeks ago. It was reassuring to find out what’s now causing these pains again.
I always arrive at your office with both questions and concerns – but when I leave I always do so with the relief of knowing and with it comes restored hope!
Despite any given obstacle I am very grateful that we, together with prof. Sandmann, always find a solution to a path forward, that hopefully might relieve me of all the pain and symptoms . . .

Again, Thank you!

Kindest Regards,

Dear Prof. Sandmann, Prof. Scholbach and Ms. Sachs,     Through your efforts (including your publication in the Am J Med Genet. 2021 on Surgical treatment of abdominal compression syndromes: The significance of hypermobility-related disorders) , our insurance company, Blue Cross Blue Shield, has pre-approved insurance coverage for the surgical procedure and associated care..

.., the rest of our family, and myself thank you.     Since the insurance company does not routinely approve insurance coverage for out of the United States treatments, the representative did have a few questions on logistics…..Prof. Sandmann and Prof. Scholbach.  However, I wanted ….to thank you all for all your work in helping patients with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and vascular compressions.  Your work is so impactful.     Sincerely,

Sehr geehrter Herr Doktor Scholbach,

Ich wollte mich nochmal bei Ihnen für die Untersuchungen, Diagnostik und Beratungen bedanken. Ich habe mich bei Ihnen sehr gut aufgehoben und verstanden gefühlt.

Sehr geehrter Herr Professor Scholbach,

Ich wollte mich noch einmal ganz herzlich für die ausführliche Untersuchung heute bei Ihnen bedanken.

Ich stand beim Verlassen der Praxis noch ein wenig neben mir; bin aber sehr froh, dass mir endlich medizinisch fundiert „Glauben geschenkt wird“, dass meine Schmerzen seit der  Hysterektomie unerträgliche Ausmaße (im gesamten Abdomen und Rücken) angenommen haben.

Ich habe mir auch alles auf Ihrer Homepage mittlerweile durchgelesen. Es ist alles sehr gut und verständlich beschrieben, was ich im Untersuchungszeitpunkt in dem Ausmaß gar nicht so fassen konnte.

Sie haben viel Empathie als Arzt.

Vielen herzlichen Dank noch mal

Ich wünsche Ihnen ein schönes Wochenende… Dankeschön. Alles Gute für Sie


Patient from Germany, November 2022

Sehr geehrter Herr Dr. Scholbach,

vielen Dank für den Befund und auch nochmals vielen Dank für Ihre Zeit und Empathie gestern!  Meistens wünsche ich mir nach so intensiven Terminen einen Tag später nochmal einen Termin, da dann immer nochmal Fragen aufkommen.

Ich stelle Sie einfach mal und freue mich, wenn Sie mir antworten (schriftlich oder telefonisch). Ich kann gleichzeitig auch gut nachvollziehen, wenn Sie keine Zeit dafür haben – ich bin ja nicht die einzige Patientin. ….. (Anmerkung von Th. Scholbach: Die Fragen wurden am Tag der Anfrage beantwortet)

Ich freue mich, wenn Sie mir antworten, vor allem die ersten beiden Fragen wären für mich wichtig.

Viele Grüße

Patient from Germany, November 2022

Dear prof Scholbach

I went to see you for the Doppler US examination, due to 14 years of postprandial pain, on the 22 th of sep. You diagnosed me with left venal vein compression and may thurner constellation among other things.

Thank you so much for the report and for the examination. I am you forever great full for giving me a diagnose and a possible way to treat it……

It has only been a month and I have a new life with no or only little postprandial pain. I am gaining weight and I am not afraid of eating before going to work or eating if I am going somewhere special.

That makes me feel so much happier and I have more energy at work and with my family (I think my husband sometimes misses me being quietJ)

I stopped taking duloxetin as a painkiller….

I am very fascinated of the way that you used the US, and I am going to join the (small) community I DK for general practicering doctors interested in US so I, maybe someday, will be able to help my patients as you did with me.

Patient from Denmark October 2022

Sehr geehrter Herr Prof. Dr. Scholbach,

Wir möchten uns nochmals für die professionelle und freundliche Untersuchung bedanken. Nach einer langen Zeit der Ungewissheit freut es uns, dass ..nun eine Diagnose bekommen hat. Die von Ihnen vermuteten Symptome auf Basis der Untersuchung konnte ..weitestgehend bestätigen. Das war für uns überaus überraschend in Übereinstimmung und im Detail.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Dear Prof. Dr. Thomas Scholbach.

Thank you very much for your excellent report, which explains my many ailments. I should have come to see you for many  years ago.

With best regards

Patient from Norway October 2022

Hello Professor Scholbach!!

I think of you every day and am reminded of the beautiful blessing God has given me, when we were led to Germany! For some reason tonight, I sat down and read your email you sent after my first exam in Germany, and for the first time, really truly took the time to read every word and detail, and I am quite emotional. I cannot begin to tell you how much my life has changed since the surgery. I no longer know what it is like to experience pain from eating. I can sit down with the family and enjoy a full course meal, even though my portion is still quite small compared to many. I have not gained any weight since surgery, but neither have I lost any, and that is very encouraging to me! Seven weeks after surgery, I was able to get rid of my PICC line for good. I’m enjoying food, like I never knew possible. My family will still sit and stare some days, with eyes wide and jaws dropped at the very sight of me attempting to eat food!? My nieces and nephews remark at the oddness of Aunt Susie eating when they eat. It truly is such a blessing!! And one, that I just never knew to be possible!! Thank you so much for your part in all of this!!

I had really hoped to stop in on our way home from Düsseldorf, but I was so weak and exhausted and didn’t know how it would be possible to have an ultrasound performed on a tummy that felt too tender to touch.? We flew back home on May 31st. My recovery was definitely more rough than any of my previous surgeries, but I was back to work a few days after surgery..working from my hospital bed, scheduling surgeries.

One major disappointment that I’m facing is the severe separation of my abdominal muscles and a big hernia in my lower abdomen. I am currently undergoing testing and then another surgery to repair that. This has happened for me after my MALS surgery, but I thought it was something I had done, such as exercise such as planks etc. This time I didn’t do any physical activity of any sort, and didn’t lift more than 10 pounds for almost four months, and still it happened. My surgeons recognize this is probably due to the extensive EDS and so now they are taking extra measures to assure this will not happen again, by placing mesh between every layer of muscle in my abdomen. We hope for the best, as usual!? Surely, surgery number 14 will be my lucky number!!

Just wanted to say thank you again for all your help! You and your team have truly been a life saver in so many ways, and I feel quite blessed to have had the means and support to seek help in your country!! Life has such an interesting twist to it, and I can’t regret anything I went through over the years, and I didn’t know it could be lived with so much less pain, and the joy of eating food. I actually experience now, what I used to ponder about…how can someone actually pretend to enjoy food so much!! It wasn’t pretending!! It was real!!? Food is good, and it is enjoyable!!

Keep up the great work, and I hope you and your family are all doing well!

Sending my best wishes!!

Patient from USA   September 2022


Dear Professor,

…I can’t thank you enough for the work you are doing. I am about 15 weeks post-op and my life has changed so much.

I have gone from daily debilitating headaches to one every two weeks. My Orthostatic tremor is gone and other tremors are rare.

I can stand upright without presyncope.

I remember the first time I stood and hugged my husband after surgery. We cried as I had been unable to hug him or my children for more than a few seconds before needing to sit.

I wonder how many lives you’ve taken part in changing…in saving.

I started an Instagram detailing everything someone needs to know to get to Leipzig and Düsseldorf. I’ve had two women from different countries reach out to me as well as woman I go to church with will be seeing you in October.

I’m trying to take all the worry and stress out of such a stressful time, because I know if they can believe the obstacles can be overcome, their lives can be changed too.

I will never be able to thank you enough. I truly don’t have words to express my gratitude.

Tausend Dank!

Patient from USA   September 2022

Good morning Professor Scholbach,

I trust you are well.     First things first, … is recovering extremely well, she is now medication free. It took our amazing daughter just 7 weeks.     You helped save …´s life Thomas, so no words will ever be enough to show you what it means to our family.     …

Patient from Iceland   September 2022

Profs Sandmann and Scholbach,

I hope you both are well and have had a good rest of the Summer.

I wish to reach out to you to let you know that our daughter …, seven weeks out from her compression surgery, has just finished her first full week of high school.  While the recovery has been very difficult at times, and she has a ways to go before claiming victory, …. has reached her goal of being well enough to go back to school for her last year in high school.

This would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the both of you doing what you do, and both making exceptions in your very busy schedules to expedite …’s care.

You are both amazing healers, and I truly wish you could live forever!  We need more like you with the skill and conviction to help these neglected kids. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

Best regards,

Thank you so much Professor Scholbach. I appreciate everything you did for me during our appointment.

Thank you ..so much for your time and compassion in helping me navigate this difficult time.

I just want to thank you for finding out what was wrong with me. It was so validating, especially after years of being gaslighted by doctors. I still can’t believe this ultrasound,  that is not invasive at all, could show so much. It’s truly amazing and this technology could and WILL change medicine. You have done more for me than any doctor ever has in the last 14 years and I will forever be grateful

Dear Dr. Scholbach,

Thank you so much for all you are doing for us! I cannot even describe the relief I feel to know that there are answers to the many questions we had over the years! I honestly did not expect you to find much, because that’s the way it’s always been with doctors, so I was quite shocked with the detailed exam and explanation, and I am so appreciative for all your help! We will try our best to swing by before we fly home just for more clarification.

Thanks again!!

Patient from US, May 2022

Hi Dr Scholbach!
THANKYOU so much for the detailed and amazing report!  I feel like crying because it’s the first time I’ve ever gotten any correct info on what’s really wrong and causing all the problems and pain! It was such a great pleasure to meet you and once I get some of this sorted would love to discuss how I could help in any way to get Doctors to come and learn your techniques and raise funds to help that happen! THANKYOU so much again!
Warm regards,
Patient from US, April 2022

Sehr geehrter Prof. Scholbach,

ich war gestern einfach zu überwältigt von den Fakten und Aussichten, dass ich versäumt habe mich bei Ihnen vielmals für die umfangreiche Diagnostik zu bedanken. Nach so langer Zeit mit diesen ungeklärten Beschwerden haben Sie mir als einziger Arzt eine nachvollziehbare Erklärung für meine Probleme liefern können und mir eine Behandlungsperspektive aufgezeigt. Vielen, vielen Dank nochmal!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Patient from Germany, April 2022

Thank you very much! I happen to have a consultation with dr. Sandmann tomorrow 🙂 …. Glad I’m going back to Germany tomorrow. I will also meet dr. Kim! Thank you all so much for helping people all around the world with this problems.

Kind regards,

I wanted to share …with you to let you know that I’m deeply thankful for the life saving diagnostic and surgical procedures that have helped change ..’s life for the better and to show the importance of the approach taken.  8 weeks post opp – she’s still struggling with gastroparesis but she is so much better than she was before.  Her mobility has improved significantly and she is making good progress.
Patient from the US, April 2022

Dear Professor Thomas  Scholbach,

I contact you after reading your extremely informative website that made me feel hopeful about obtaining a thorough diagnosis and treatment plan.  As my illness is chronic and debilitating, I was wondering if the Colour Duplex Sonography applying the PixelFlux-Technique in order to detect vascular compression syndrome and inflammation would be a test worse pursuing.

Kindest regards

Patient from UK, April 2022

Hello Professor Scholbach,

I am …, your patient from London.
I have been there on the 22nd of March and you made an amazing job and report, I can’t thank you enough…..
Kind regards
Patient from UK, April 2022

Dr. ….,
I’d like to formally connect you with two people who have had a permanent positive impact on …. and so many others who have suffered from vascular compressions, Prof. Thomas Scholbach, a pediatrician/hospital administrator in Leipzig and Professor Wilhelm Sandmann, a surgeon in Dusseldorf.
The purpose of this introduction is to help bring the knowledge and techniques Prof. Sandmann and Sholbach use to diagnose and surgically fix vascular compressions to the U.S..
Why?  In 2.5 hours Prof. Sholbach had a much more accurate and detailed diagnosis of … compressions than we had in the U.S. in 2.5 years.  I strongly believe that adopting and using this technology [PixelFlux-  inserted by T.Scholbach] will accelerate a physician’s ability to accurately diagnose vascular compressions.  Using this technique and expertise reduces the time a patient suffers, removes significant wasteful time and spending for all parties (the patient, health plans and practices that have to continually field calls for those that suffer and little can be done).
Also, the open surgical approach to fixing all compressions vs a single (one at a time) appears to achieve the best results for patients.  (not backed by a double blind clinical study – but seen first hand in our home and ~ 10 other patients we have met directly).
I hope/pray that you Dr. … can benefit from the work and experience of these two amazing humans!  I deeply respect each one of you in this email and have high hopes for collaboration and learning that can benefit so many who desperately need it.
I will follow up later next week to be sure this connection is received and helpful.
Best wishes!
Father of a patient from USA, April 2022

Professor’s Scholbach and Sandman,
I’m reaching out to share very good news!  First and foremost our daughter …. has made significant progress in her health since we were there in February.  She is now drinking water, eating food, becoming more active, healthier and happier.  We are deeply thankful for the amazing health care you provided that has helped us get our daughter on her way back to being able to live her life….
Patient from USA, April 2022

Hallo Herr Professor Scholbach,

vielen Dank für die schnelle Zusendung des Befundberichtes. Ich bin ihnen so unendlich dankbar für alles. Nach dem Ärztemarathon der letzten Monate habe ich nicht mehr an eine Diagnose geglaubt. Mein Alptraum hat endlich ein Ende. Der Weg zu ihnen nach Leipzig hat sich gelohnt. Sie sind ein toller und verständnisvoller Arzt der seine Patienten ernst nimmt und zu hört. Bleiben sie so wie sie sind. Ich wünsche ihnen schöne Ostern.

Herzliche Grüße
Patient from Germany, April 2022

Lieber Herr Prof. Dr. Scholbach,

ganz herzlichen Dank für den Befund und auch für die für mich endlich aufschlussreiche Untersuchung, die Sie so angenehm wie möglich haben sein lassen.

Ihre ausführlichen Erklärungen haben es mir leichter gemacht, die doch sehr komplexen Zusammenhänge zu verstehen und besser einzuordnen.

Auch für Sie alles Gute

und herzliche Grüße,

Patient from Germany, April 2022

Aloha, Prof. Scholbach,

I am so grateful and humbled to have met you and received your expert diagnoses.  Your professionalism, compassion, and knowledge is second to none in my years of trying to receive medical treatment.  You have given me much hope and confidence after many years of medical gaslighting and misdiagnosis.

The 30 hour journey was worth every effort and your ultrasound is, of course, above and beyond anything I could have found in the United States.  I wish I could have come to you sooner, but better late than never.  I will be recommending you to all my peers who are compression patients.

I was extremely impressed with how easy it was to make the appointment from the U.S., how informative your website is, and your staff is lovely and helpful, as well.  The entire process from start to finish was comprehensive and reassuring, especially for someone coming from halfway around the world, and who is coming to Europe for the first time.  Thank you again for your outstanding care, for your kindhearted compassion, and for being a key player in the fight for my life.

Mahalo nui loa! And warmest Aloha to you and your family.  I loved hearing about how you and your son created the software that makes all this possible!  So cool!

Patient from Hawaii US, March 2022

Good afternoon Dr. Scholbach,

..I ..learned about yourself and Dr. Sandmann. I told Dr. ..I was thinking about reaching out to you, and his reply was “those doctors are second to none, the USA doesn’t have the surgical expertise nor the technology that you have.” He also said if we go to Germany, he would like to come also to watch and learn from both of you….

Patient from the US, February 2022

Thank you so much for coming in to diagnose …during your holiday.  The very important work that you do, the software and diagnostic testing needs to be adopted in the US…. So does the surgical approach of Dr Sandmann.

I have worked in the US healthcare industry for 20 years and want to try to find ways to get US physicians to listen to you and learn from you.

Patient from UK, February 2022

I had a CTA done at one year post up. A radiologist, vascular surgeon, and urologist (who also places PTFE grafts around renal vein) all looked over my imaging to confirm my PTFE grafts and organs still looked great. An additional (and unexpected) benefit from my surgery became evident at a year post op when an ultrasound was performed. It showed my previous severe chronic insufficiency in my legs was completely gone. I have two different doctors who diagnosed this prior to my compression surgery. I even remember a tech asking if I had diabetes because she was shocked at the severity.

Congratulations on your publication connecting EDS & multiple vascular compressions. All the warriors, family, & friends have been celebrating since we heard the news. Thank you for your continued time, energy, and purpose to help all of us.
