The Schulthess Klinik in Zurich is one of Europe's leading orthopaedic hospitals. Its central concern is to free people from pain and give them back their mobility.
As a top orthopaedic hospital, the Schulthess Klinik focuses on sophisticated methods of treatment for the musculoskeletal system. People with joint, spinal, hand and foot problems find relief here. Consultations in the pain management centre and the application of conservative therapy show that there are alternatives to surgical intervention.
The hospital's value proposition is that it improves patients' mobility. That involves avoiding complications, guaranteeing short rehabilitation times, integrated quality assurance, combating and treating pain and integrated conservative therapy as an alternative.
The hospital's key areas of focus include, in addition to orthopaedic treatment of the upper and lower extremities, the spinal centre with its surgery, neurosurgery and neurology departments, paediatric orthopaedics, the department of rheumatology and rehabilitation, the pain management and medico-legal affairs centre, sports medicine and physiotherapy and research and development.
In tandem with Helsana, the Schulthess Klinik has launched "OrthoScore", the first quality seal in Switzerland for selected orthopaedic surgery services provided by hospitals. The tool can be used to measure and compare medical services.
