Knee surgeon in Zurich (for an arthroscopy)...and physiotherapist too!

Hi all,

I just got here last Saturday and will need some knee surgery fairly soon.

I think I'll try to get it refunded under the EHIC scheme as I haven't even received my resident card or got insured here, but for practical reasons (two children under 5 here), I will probably need to get surgery and then do some physio in Zurich (rather than get it done and recover in the UK).

So three questions really - and I hope your answers will be as helpful as the last time I asked something

1) How do I find a good knee surgeon/hospital and arrange for the surgery? (NB: I am pre-/outside Swiss insurance)

2) Same question about rehabilitation with a physiotherapist

3) any advice on how to find a babysitter for those few days when i may not be able to walk and the 4 to 6 weeks when I may need some help e.g. with the school run?

I live in Kreis 5 near the Viadukt and I don't have a car.
