Ortho-accident helpline

Ortho-Unfall Hotline
Opening hours
Mo–Su 08.00–20.00 (inkl. Feiertage)

Have you bruised your finger playing sports, sprained your knee while jogging or gone over on your ankle at home and are not sure what to do? What immediate measures need to be taken in this kind of emergency? Do you need a GP or even a specialist? A telephone consultation can help you decide what to do next. 

Our hotline (+41 44 385 72 72) is available every day from 8 am to 9 pm to provide free advice.

The hotline is a quick and simple way for you to discuss your injury and the next treatment steps with our experts before taking any further action. If needed, you can also arrange an emergency appointment at Schulthess Klinik directly via the hotline. If radiological examinations and/or laboratory tests are required (x-ray, CT, MRI), these can be conducted at our clinic.

Please note that Schulthess Klinik does not have an emergency walk-in unit. This means you will need to contact us by phone first so we can discuss how to proceed.

Do you have questions about treatment you have already undergone at Schulthess Klinik or would you like to arrange an appointment? If so, please contact the secretary of the specialist department concerned or your attending doctor.
