Mission Statement

The team at the Hernia Centre Switzerland specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of hernias. Our team of surgeons works with gentle surgical procedures and state-of-the-art medical technology. This allows us to offer surgical care of hernias at the highest quality standard. Thanks to the many years of expertise and surgical experience of our team of surgeons, we can treat our patients with a low risk of complications, minimal pain and the best possible chances of recovery.

We meet the strict quality standards and requirements of the German Society for General and Visceral Surgery for certification as a centre of excellence for hernia surgery. In 2021, we have also been recognised by the Leading Medicine Guide as a “Designated International Expert in Hernia Surgery”. To receive these awards, we have to successfully perform a certain amount of hernia operations each year. Furthermore, it is measured how many rare and very complex hernia cases we were allowed to treat with our expertise.


Have you been diagnosed with a hernia? Or do you suspect you are suffering from a hernia? Contact us for an appointment!


If you suspect a hernia, you will be examined and diagnosed by one of our specialists. You are also welcome to contact us for a second opinion. If you wish, we will then work with you to draw up a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs and support you in carrying it out in close cooperation with other specialists and therapists.
