Dr. Christoph Erling completed his hand surgery training at the University Hospitals of Lausanne, Geneva and Zurich. During this time he specialised in the treatment of traumatic and degenerative diseases of the upper extremity (hand). A passionate hand surgeon and physician, he specialised in orthopedic surgery & traumatology of the musculoskeletal system in 2017 and hand surgery in 2018.
Dr. Christoph Erling has over six years of experience as a senior physician as well as extensive knowledge of conservative and operative hand surgery treatment concepts. The analysis of specific complaints – based on anamnesis, clinical examination and further examinations – requires in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge. Fascinated by hand surgery, he developed a special interest in endoscopic and arthroscopic surgical options: neurolysis of the nerves supplying the upper extremity, removal of wrist ganglions and fixation of the wrist ligaments (e.g.: TFCC), as well as partial fusion of the wrist (3-corner fusion).
Addressing your patients’ needs and getting to know their wishes is a prerequisite for personalised consultation and the mutual development of a targeted therapy strategy. This is the only way to optimally leverage the various strengths of conservative or surgical therapy.
As a father of two children, he looked forward to returning to the region where he completed his first years of training in order to open a hand surgery practice in Freiburg, Switzerland, in December 2019.
Accredited at three clinics, he offers outpatient surgical operations at Clinique Moncor and in-patient operations at Clinique Générale or in the Daler Hospital.
