About us

Dr. Urs Iwan Zuberbuehler is a specialist in orthopedic surgery and traumatology of the musculoskeletal system and specializes exclusively in spinal surgery. Since 2014, he has been the Specialist at the Neurology and Spinal Center of the Hirslanden Andreas Hospital in Cham and he also practices as an in-patient physician at other renowned hospitals in Switzerland. Thanks to his over ten years activity as the Surgeon in Charge, Dr. Zuberbuehler possesses comprehensive experience in his specialist field and he has also trained prospective medical practitioners in special advanced training institutions.

Thanks to his membership in a variety of specialist associations, including the Swiss Spinal Surgery Association (SGS), Dr. Zuberbuehler is outstandingly networked within the circle of his specialist colleagues. His range of services includes the entire range of conditions and treatments of the spinal column. Primarily, this includes a precise diagnosis, by which Dr. Zuberbuehler and his team are able to assess what treatment promises the greatest success. Here, the welfare of the patient invariably takes center stage: surgery is only performed when conventional methods can offer no further help. Thus, the specialists ensure that the patient need not undergo unnecessary procedures. But even if a procedure is indicated, with Dr. Zuberbuehler, the patient is in the best hands. The specialist in spinal surgery treats osteoporotic fractures of the spinal column as well as complex deformities due to scoliosis and tumor conditions. He has mastered all advanced techniques and performs the procedures with the highest degree of precision with the aid of microsurgical or minimal invasive techniques. Dr. Zuberbuehler’s service portfolio also includes prosthetics in the region of the cervical and lumbar spinal column. In addition, he performs revision procedures and is available for second opinions.

The Neurology and Spinal Center of the Hirslanden Andreas Hospital is an interdisciplinary center of excellence for the diagnosis and treatment of back conditions. Here, Dr. Zuberbuehler and his team collaborate closely with colleagues in the specialist areas of radiology, rheumatology, physical therapy and, not least, with the family physicians of the affected patients in order to guarantee the optimal care of the patient.
