Oncologist near Nyon.

I have become completely fed up with the jokers at the Genolier clinic. I won’t bore you with the details but I want to move on.

So as the title says can anyone recommend a oncologist along La Côte tthat seems to know what s/he is doing?

Started as Prostate now spreading to the Sternum.

Re: Oncologist near Nyon.

So so sorry to hear you are having a rough time. Would you not be better with someone at HUG?

OH is followed by great Urologist at La Source in Lausanne, Dr Cerontola. He speaks English.

Re: Oncologist near Nyon.

Not sure if this helps much but I have lived in the same area as you for years. For anything serious I head straight for Geneva or Lausanne. Even my GP is in Geneva. Nyon, and in particular the hospital is only for minor things due to its convenience only. I know too many people, self included, who've had issues with the local offerings on too many occasions. You have 2 big university hospitals and a number of private ones , both within 30 minutes or less in both directions. Not really an inconvenience and many specialists in all fields. Some of them world class specialists as well.

Re: Oncologist near Nyon.

My great uncle is facing a somewhat similar situation, starting with prostate which spread to the bladder. He’s happy with the care he’s getting at CHUV.

Re: Oncologist near Nyon.

Prostate and bladder are closely linked. The sternum is not, and according to my resident doctor, the spread from prostate to sternum very unlikely.

Hope you get someone you can trust and will help and support you and find best options forwards.

Merde- as we say in French, and in both senses (Sh*t and bonne chance).

Re: Oncologist near Nyon.

I think the Cantonal hospital in St. Gall is considered cutting edge for oncolgy in Switzerland although it is a bit far from Welche land.


Unfortunately i have no names for you though.

That’s interesting. Why is unlikely to spread to the sternum?

Bone is the most common site for metastasis from prostate cancer so why not the sternum bone?

I’m sorry I have no personal recommendations for you Bowlie but a friend has been very happy with Dr Marie-Laure Amran at HUG.
