SPECIALISTS AND GPs UNDER ONE ROOF
At the MediS group practice, specialists and GPs work alongside each other, meaning that our patients benefit from integrated care.
We provide both long-term, continuous healthcare from a GP and immediate specialist care expertise – as our general practitioners and our specialists in cardiology, angiology, vascular surgery and phlebology all work under the same roof.
This means there are no delays if ever you need to be referred – and no loss of information that is necessary for your treatment, as all doctors share the same electronic medical records. This not only speeds up the treatment process, but also makes it cheaper, especially as it avoids the same tests having to be carried out more than once. As a member of the innovative MediX practice network, we can also offer you managed care and primary care models.
Our medical practice provides the following services:
We work with all university, municipal and private hospitals in Zurich and with the University of Zurich's Institute of Primary Care in particular.

In Switzerland, cardiovascular diseases are the main reason for seeing a doctor or being admitted to hospital. They are also the most common cause of death among men and women.

Venous diseases (sub-discipline Phlebology):
Phlebology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of venous diseases, especially varicose veins.
More than 20% of the population suffer from varicose veins. Most of them will be genetically susceptible to weak venous walls. The spectrum ranges from aesthetically unpleasant, harmless spider veins to pronounced vein dilatations associated with serious medical problems.
It is important to distinguish between primary, congenital varicose veins and secondary varicose veins in which deep vein thrombosis can cause dilatation of the superficial venous system (in approx. 5% of cases). This is done through careful diagnosis by means of clinical investigation and vascular/duplex ultrasound.
The consequences are a chronic increase in pressure in the blood vessels, resulting in swelling of the legs and inflammatory processes with skin alterations. More serious complications include leg ulcers (venous ulcers), superficial thrombophlebitis, thrombosis and bleeding.
