Hand and Elbow Surgery
"A beautiful hand adorns the whole person" (Heinrich Heine)
Above all, a hand must be functional. Whether at work, in sports or as a means of expression, the hand plays a central role in our lives.

In case of diseases or accidents in the area of the hand, forearm and elbow, we are at your side as specialists for hand and peripheral nerve surgery.
