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.

Dr. med. Jean Pierre ElsigDr. med. Jean Pierre Elsig

For me, professional ethics means always giving of one's best. This in turn requires regular further training. Furthermore, I participate in publications and am scientifically active.


1976–1982               Degree at the Faculty of Medicine University of Lausanne
1982                         State Examination at the University of Lausanne


After my state examination at the University of Lausanne, I trained inter alia at Balgrist University Hospital in Zurich under Prof. Adam Schreiber. After gaining the title of Specialist in Orthopaedic Surgery (FMH), I was able to further deepen my knowledge thanks to numerous periods spent abroad. I remained at Balgrist and over several years was a consultant in orthopaedics and paraplegiology, Head of the Department of Spine Surgery and lecturer at the physiotherapy school at University Hospital Zurich.

I have had my own practice since 1994 and frequently attend and organise national and international congresses as well.

General practitioner activity with hospital affiliations

As a general practitioner, I work at the Klinik im Park and the Privatklinik Bethanien in Zurich.


In the area of rehabilitation I work with the Klinik Schloss Mammern and Bad Schinznach zusammen.
