About the department

The Department of Rheumatology at the Clinic de Genolier Genolier offers the high-precision diagnostics and effective treatment of pathological lesions of the joints, bones and soft tissues. The experienced doctors, who have all the necessary resources and high professionalism for high-quality medical care, take care of the health of the musculoskeletal system of patients. The Head of the department is Dr. med. Yves Jaccard.

In most cases, such diagnostic tests as radiography and laboratory tests, including general and complete blood count, rheumatoid factor test, etc. are sufficient to detect rheumatic disorders. Based on the diagnostic data, the doctor develops an optimal treatment regimen – most rheumatic diseases are treated conservatively.

Drug treatment is often supplemented by physiotherapeutic methods, which in combination helps to achieve complete cure of the patient or alleviate pain syndrome. It is worth noting that physiotherapy plays an important role in the treatment of many rheumatic diseases. The individually designed complexes help patients to work out muscle groups, which are rarely used in everyday life, to prevent limitation of the range of motion.
