Knee Cartilage specialist

Hey,

After a knee surgery (in both knees) a year ago, my knee cartilage has progressively gotten worse (from stage 3 to stage 4) and I'd like to see a specialist about this. Does anyone know of a knee cartilage specialist in Switzerland?

I live in Geneva but I've done some research to the best of my ability and haven't found anyone...My physical therapist claims the German speaking area would be more fruitful. Any recommendations? I am willing to travel anywhere within Switzerland to see someone.

Thank you!

Re: Knee Cartilage specialist

Hello,

There is a Cartilage Repair Society with Admin office in Wetzikon (Zurich): www.cartilage.org. Perhaps you could contact them directly and ask if they could make a recommendation.

Dr Christoph Erggelet (http://drerggelet.ch/) has a private practice in Zurich and is (or was) a Bord Member of this Society, so maybe he could also help.

Very best,

Maybe your insurance company has a recommendation that can direct you to an Orthopaedist?

Re: Knee Cartilage specialist

Hi,

I was treated for something else, but my doctor is also a specialist in knee cartilage repairs. His name is Dr Mahmutovic, and you can find him in VidyMed (http://www.vidymed.ch). It is close to Geneva

Zurich
They are the best in the german part (maybe even from Switzerland).
I have a friend that had 2 operations at this klinik and she is very happy with how things are going now.

Re: Knee Cartilage specialist

In agreement with previous post. Had excellent meniscus surgery by Dr. Patrick Sussman at Schulthess Klinic.
