About the department

The Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology at the Hirslanden Clinic Aarau offers all the options of modern medicine for treating patients with pathologies of the bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. The doctors of the department have exceptional experience in the field of joint replacement surgery. The patients who have undergone knee or hip replacement surgery are offered an innovative highly effective concept of postoperative recovery of mobility called Rapid Recovery. Special attention is also paid to the treatment of spinal pathologies, in particular arthrosis, herniated discs and osteoporotic lesions of the spine. The department is headed by Dr. med. Claudio Cerletti.

The medical facility began its work in 1988, so its specialists have rich experience and professional skills to provide high-quality and effective medical care based on an individual approach. The clinical practice involves the use of reliable, internationally recognized conservative and surgical treatments.
