Which clinic/hospital for colorectal surgery?

Hi,

I am new to Zurich, and currently have a health problem (anal abscess). Do you know which clinic/hospital I can go to for colorectal surgery?

Thanks for helping.

Another problem is I don't speak German. So, I need a doctor who can speak English.

Re: Which clinic/hospital for colorectal surgery?

Do you have a GP? Is this urgent?

If it is not so urgent, do a quick search for threads recommending English speaking GPs, make an appointment. (There are many) You will need to find a GP anyway...

If it is urgent, go the the Permanence Clinic at the ZH HB. This is a walk-in clinic, you don't need an appointment, you will be seen by a GP today. (There will be a wait, but usually not more than an hour or so.) They will not do the surgery - that is beyond the scope of the clinic - but they will assess your condition and refer you on to an appropriate hospital/doctor who would. Most doctors at the clinic speak some English.

If it is critical, go to any ER.

Bear in mind, unless something is a true emergency it is usually best to see a GP first. With a referral from a GP your case would be appropriately prioritized.

Re: Which clinic/hospital for colorectal surgery?

Kantonspital St. Gallen is probably the best hospital in Switzerland for colorectal surgery, I'm still here because of them. However the best way to move forward is as Meloncollie suggests and go and see a GP first, you can probably search the forum to find English speaking doctors in Zurich.

Thanks Meloncollie and Markarina for the useful advices. I went to the Permanence Clinic today. Got check-up, and had a blood test. The doctor then gave me antibiotics for the problem. Hopefully it will get better soon.
