Surgery Department

Mission

Mission of the Surgery Department

The Surgery Department provides 24/7 elective and emergency care, for patients with basic insurance and also patients with complementary or private insurance.

It is made up of eight medical divisions:

While the department divisions function autonomously, from a medical point of view and in terms of patient care, they are functionally and structurally linked to one another, in terms of the following aspects:

  • Undergraduate and postgraduate teaching
  • Training of residents, career planning
  • Academic research activities
  • Use of common operating theaters
  • Handling of surgical emergencies, in particular as part of the CAU 
  • Humanitarian surgery
  • Common department budget

The department is a center of excellence in several areas and in several surgical specialties, not only at a Swiss level, but also a Europe level.

Each year, it welcomes dozens of outside visitors who come to do an advanced training course.
