Dear patients and referring physicians!


I am pleased to welcome you here on the Swiss Surgery website.

The clarification and treatment of patients with breast diseases and in particular breast cancer has occupied me for over 30 years. Patients with breast cancer require special attention, as many questions and fears arise in this formative life situation; That is why I am personally looking after my patients, both in the clarification phase and in the perioperative phase. I feel fortunate that I can fall back on a proven interdisciplinary team at the Breast Center Zurich, because the treatment is usually not just the operation and a tailor-made, comprehensive treatment plan is required, which is defined in common tumor boards before and after the operation.

Through constant exchange and further training as well as through participation in national and international studies and through the use of all technical achievements, I can offer you surgical treatment that is state-of-the-art. The techniques of modern oncoplastic surgery combine safe breast cancer surgery, complete removal with aesthetic considerations in order to preserve the patient’s physical integrity.

Seeing grateful, healed patients in the follow-up consultation even after years is my motivation for the constant evaluation and improvement of our treatment.

We warmly welcome patients of all insurance classes.

I am available for a personal conversation!
