Academic research

As a result of the high number of operations performed each year, doctors at the Pfaeffikon Centre for Orthopaedic Surgery posses ideal levels of experience.

In order to keep up with the latest academic and clinical developments, our doctors regularly attend symposia and conferences for their continuing professional development.
