Knee specialist in Lausanne / Vevey

Hi everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone can recommend a knee doctor (specialist) in the Lausanne - Vevey area??? My insurance doesn't compel me to see a GP first and I think I'd prefer to go direct to an expert.

Many thanks
Kathy

Re: Knee specialist in Lausanne / Vevey

Hi Kathy

A few years ago I saw Docteur Marc Baumann for my knee. We opted not to operate so can't say more but as a whole I was impressed. I also know someone else who saw him and was happy.

Another advantage is his english was pretty good

Hope this helps

You'll get the "thanks" mechanism after you have made 5 posts , but it's a pleasure anyway.

Re: Knee specialist in Lausanne / Vevey

Hi Kathy,

I cannot recommend based on first-hand experience, but nearly everyone at my work who has had knee trouble as a result of skiing has seen and been operated on by:

Dr. Patrick Maire in Clarens (Montreux).

The info from doctor.ch is:

Maire Patrick
Dr méd. spéc. FMH en chirurgie orthopédique CTO
Rue du Lac 92, 1815 Clarens
Tel: 021 989 22 30
Fax: 021 989 22 31

He has received nothing but raving reviews from colleagues.

Good luck!

Hotspur
