Your clinic

Schulthess Klinik

With more than 1,200 members of staff, we are one of Europe’s leading orthopaedic clinics. We are committed to restoring our patients’ mobility and eliminating our patients’ pain in the long term using state-of-the-art and conservative methods. Our clinic accepts patients with general and supplementary health insurance.

We treat patients with joint, spine, hand or foot conditions. The core areas of our clinic are orthopaedic surgery, neurology, rheumatology and sports medicine. By advising patients on conservative pain therapy and treatment methods, we make it clear that our clinic often offers alternatives to surgical procedures. Schulthess Klinik is home to the Swiss Olympic Medical Center.

We do everything we can to ensure that you are well looked after and that you receive all the information you need. We want to work together with you to help you reach your treatment goal quickly and ensure that you get the most out of our expertise.

The Wilhelm Schulthess Foundation

Schulthess Klinik was established in 1883 and became a non-profit foundation – the Wilhelm Schulthess Foundation – in 1935. Since then, it has remained a non-profit organisation. The Board of Trustees is made up of 17 people from a variety of industries.

 

Quality

Quality management at the Schulthess Klinik ensures that our services consistently meet stringent external and internal quality requirements.

 

The history

The clinic has come a long way and made tremendous technological progress between its founding by Wilhelm Schulthess and today’s centre of excellence. What has remained over the years, however, is the demand for the highest quality in the interests of our patients.

 

Research

The scientific work carried out by the Teaching, Research and Development department supports the clinic’s departments and thus helps improve patient care. Our research work is continuously providing new insights into the treatment of orthopaedic patients and reinforcing Schulthess Klinik’s international reputation as a centre of excellence.

 

Partnerships

Many of our multidisciplinary projects are carried out in cooperation with other institutions in Switzerland and abroad.
