Position and faculty
Consultant Foot Surgery
Shock wave therapy
After working as an Assistant Physician in orthopaedic surgery and accident surgery for many years, I was faced with the decision of continuing to work in surgery or taking a new path.
Since I didn’t want to completely turn my back on surgery/orthopaedics as a specialist area, I opted for conservative orthopaedics. In this field, especially in foot and ankle orthopaedics, I was also able to work part-time which meant I could enjoy the best of both worlds in terms of my family and career.
The specialist area of foot and ankle surgery/orthopaedics has appealed to me ever since I started my training, because of the specialisation in a very specific part of the body.
The Foot and Ankle Surgery department at the Schulthess Klinik, led by Dr. med. Pascal Rippstein, gives the attending doctors enough time to give patients all due attention and come up with an individual treatment plan together with their surgical colleagues.
