Outpatient consultations

Many chronic diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular disease or diabetes require regular follow-up. For this reason, we provide outpatient consultations at Hôpital de La Tour as well as at Clinique de Carouge (on Thursday afternoons) in order to offer the very best treatment conditions to our patients. Over the years, our department has built up expertise in these various fields while remaining constantly on the cutting edge of developments.

Our department is made up of three nutritionists and a nutritional physician, and will provide a personalised response to your needs. No medical prescription is required for treatment. However, the healthcare system may require it for reimbursement.

Clinical nutrition

It is estimated that in Switzerland, 20 to 40% of patients in hospitals suffer from undernourishment when they are admitted. Undernourishment in hospital leads to an extension of the average stay, an increase in mortality, doubling of the number of complications and less autonomy when the patient is released. In this context, our nutrition department screen, diagnose and treat patients suffering from undernourishment. In addition, we provide home follow-up for the artificial nutrition of patients who require it.

We answer your calls from Monday through Friday from 08:00 to 17:00 at + 41 22 719 65 55.
