The quality of our work and services is paramount to us - it is the basis upon which all of our actions are founded and prerequisite to the greatest patient safety. The Bahnhof Basel Eye Center and the Bahnhof Basel Surgical Center have been certified according to the ISO 9001:2008 standard since 2009.
Besides this certification, we systematically register all of our cataract surgeries with Eurequo, a Europe-wide quality assurance project, as proof that we stand up to international comparison. We also conduct continual surveys on patients undergoing cataract surgeries to poll their satisfaction with the operation and the outcome.
