Surgeon recommendations (Baden area, English speaking)

I'm looking to find an English-speaking surgeon who is taking new patients in the larger Baden area, or in Zurich. Any recommendations?

I don't need surgery, but I'm having some complications from a surgery I had in my home country almost a year ago, and need to find a doctor as soon as possible.


Before anyone says all doctors here speak English. Not true. I went to one a few weeks ago who spoke only a few words of English. I don't want to go through that again.

Thanks for your helpful suggestions.

For many surgeons you will first need a referral from a GP. So I suggest you visit your GP first, perhaps you have already been, and ask for a referral.

Not all doctors speak English. Tell your GP you want a doctor who speaks fluent English.

some of these doctors have web sites and have english as a language option.

or go through doctor.ch - and put in the specialist you want.
