Information on the coronavirus/COVID 19

Even during the dif­fi­cult time of the Coro­na pan­de­mic, we con­ti­nue to be available to you as cont­act per­sons and trea­ting vas­cu­lar sur­ge­ons at all times. We are con­ti­nuous­ly available accor­ding to our ope­ning hours and can of cour­se be cont­ac­ted via e‑mail.

If you have gene­ral ques­ti­ons about medi­cal con­di­ti­ons or non-urgent com­plaints, we offer you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to make an appointment:

  1. Con­sul­ta­ti­on via video conference
  2. Tele­pho­ne consultation

Tog­e­ther, we will hop­eful­ly soon over­co­me this extra­or­di­na­ry situation.
Plea­se obser­ve the neces­sa­ry pre­cau­ti­ons and stay healthy.

Our prac­ti­ce acti­vi­ties are curr­ent­ly based on the gui­de­lines of the Fede­ral Office of Public Health (FOPH). For the time being, the­r­e­fo­re, only urgen­tly nee­ded out­pa­ti­ent exami­na­ti­ons can be car­ri­ed out. Inpa­ti­ent tre­at­ments must also be redu­ced to urgent tre­at­ments or tre­at­ments that can­not be post­po­ned (e.g. seve­re cir­cu­la­to­ry dis­or­ders of the arms and legs, caro­tid artery con­stric­tion with immi­nent stro­ke, lar­ge artery dilatations/aneurysms).

Vas­cu­lar emer­gen­ci­es of any kind will, of cour­se, con­ti­nue to be accept­ed and trea­ted imme­dia­te­ly at any time via the St. Anna Cli­nic emer­gen­cy department.
