About us

Ortho Cham Zug – Four highly qualified bone and joint specialists, who together form the Center of Excellence for the Musculoskeletal System. Dr. Pascal Ducommun, Dr. Flueckiger, Dr. Gathmann and Dr. Roethlisberger specialize in individual emphases and hence cover the entire human musculoskeletal system because at the Ortho Cham Zug Center of Excellence for the Musculoskeletal System, the fact is: Broad, superficial knowledge is not asked for. Rather, specialization in a very narrow field within orthopedics helps to provide a more precise diagnosis, more carefully targeted treatment and a better treatment result in an individual case. The orthopedics specialists utilize all of their experience and competence in order to help to provide their patients a rapid recovery and to regain pain-free mobility. The individual is always the focus and comprehensive, competent care within the framework of a confident doctor / patient relationship promotes the healing process optimally. For this reason, both patients with general insurance and patients with additional insurance are welcome at Ortho Cham Zug. The orthopedic specialists at the Center of Excellence for the Musculoskeletal System also invariably work at the cutting edge of science and, in their surgical procedures, have recourse to the entire spectrum of advanced medical technology at the Hirslanden Andreas Hospital in Cham, Zug. Collaboration with this renowned hospital guarantees outstanding patient care directly prior to and following surgery.
