Dear patients and referring physicians!

A warm welcome!

Spinal Surgery means taking responsibility for people’s movement and maintaining their quality of everyday life. This requires enormous trust and great expertise. During my 25 years of experience, of which I spent 18 as head of Spinal Surgery at the Orthopaedic University Hospital Balgrist in Zurich, I have performed more than 20.000 spinal operations, treating all spinal diseases.

My surgical activities focus on complex revision operations, corrections of deformities such as scolioses, kyphoses and tumor surgery, not only in adults but also in pediatric patients.

It is my concern to offer patients of all age groups competent treatment and personal careand to create the conditions for the best possible results using the latest medical knowledge and technical possibilities.

We cordially welcome patients of all insurance classes!

I am at your disposal for further questions.
