Orthopaedics & Orthopaedic Surgery

Our aim is to find solutions that restore patients' quality of life.

Joints & spine

Treatment is only useful if it is tailored towards patients and their symptoms.

Gentle methods of treatment

Conservative forms of treatment take precedence. A surgical procedure is not discussed until these have been exhausted.


The Dr. med. Jean Pierre Elsig Practice

In our Orthopaedics & Orthopaedic Surgery Practice in Küsnacht, the human musculoskeletal system is the focus of our interest.

Spine and joints are subjected to large loads every day. These can cause pain and trigger problems in the musculoskeletal system, which greatly restrict quality of life.

Our aim is to find solutions, which minimise or relieve the physical disability and/or mechanical constraints and restore people's quality of life.

In order to achieve this aim, ascertaining the correct diagnosis is crucially important.

The preparatory steps set the standard for the correct treatment

The dialogue between doctor and patient forms the basis for the diagnosis – apart from the preliminary medical clarification – and lays the groundwork for the individual method of treatment.

The treatment does not necessarily lead to an operation. Conservative forms of therapy, such as physiotherapy with back training sessions and pain medicine take precedence. Only when conservative measures are no longer effective is surgical treatment discussed.

Interdisciplinary approach

A matter of great importance to us is our collaboration with doctors and technicians specialising in the following disciplines:

  • Rheumatology
  • Neurologiy
  • Neurosurgery
  • Anaesthesia
  • Radiology
  • Psychotherapy

As a result of the communicating of different points of view, interdisciplinary exchanges usually prove to be enriching for our own work.
