I don't personally, but the Schultess Klinik and the Balgrist Klinik are supposed to be a couple of the best orthpaedic centers in CH. Ironically, they are right next to each other at the Balgrist stop in Zurich.

Re: Urgent: Please Help [Spine Surgeon in ZH]

I have a hip operation planned at the Schulthess clinic this coming September. I have to say they have been extremely efficient and professional up till now. As jsherk says, it is one of the best orthopedic centres in Europe, and has close ties to FIFA and Swiss Olympic.

Re: Urgent: Please Help [Spine Surgeon in ZH]

Sorry that I can't make a recommendation in Europe, but for the purposes of getting recommendations here, it might be worth clarifying whether you need a orthopedic surgeon, or a neurologic surgeon. For example, if you have a spinal ependymoma (tumor inside the spinal canal) that's a huge difference from having crushed discs or whatever.

Been through it, feel your pain.

You just don't have enough posts yet. Keep posting and you'll be able to use it. Hope you get your problem sorted out soon. We've found the Swiss hospitals/doctors to be very good in our dealings with them.

Re: Urgent: Please Help [Spine Surgeon in ZH]

Check out the helpful information in Forum Support before you spend too much time askng yourself why you cannot find buttons and things which other people, obviously higher beings, can.

Good luck in your search for a surgeon. (it catches the eye of the 'right' people if you give a bit of info in the title - here, I suppose a Moderator altered it to give you a hand). Hope all goes well.

I went to this place a couple of years ago:

Professor Boos operated on my neck (herniated disc) and I thought he was great. I had the utmost confidence in him and still do!

Re: Urgent: Please Help [Spine Surgeon in ZH]

I've had surgeries at both of these hospitals and both are excellent, wasn't for spinal though but I can recommend either place as a hospital.

The "reply" icon? It's available from the second you join EF. You're thinking of the "thanks" button. Or maybe the OP was, in which case you're correct

Just finding out the details now. Are you able to share any specifics of what is required and if previous medical assistance has been given in Switzerland? Has there been a GP visit etc? And PM me your email address?
