Since my move to Clinique de Genolier in 1997, I have experienced a revolution in the diagnosis, care and treatment offered to patients. Rheumatology has made leaps and bounds into ultra-modern medicine in the light of highly important and significant advancements, especially in the treatment of diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or spondylitis often leading to disability.

Today, rheumatologists remain highly attentive to what their patients have to say. Through dialogue, questioning, research, explanation, patients, when necessary, may be directed to other medical disciplines such as orthopedic surgery, radiology, neurology, internal medicine, immunology, oncology, angiology, cardiology, endocrinology, etc for treatment.

The role of rheumatologists is to synthesize, provide treatment and follow-up in cooperation with all medical disciplines, but above all, makes every effort to sustain strong ties with the patient and his general practitioner.

Since starting my practice, I have developed skills in rheumatological disease management, such as rheumatoid arthritis, spondylitis, chronic pain and osteoporosis. As a rheumatologist, patient follow-up after orthopedic operations or trauma with adapted physio-therapy needs is an integral part of my work.
