Our mission :

To offer individualised treatment to each patient, at the same time as reducing the costs.


The Swiss Hernia Institute (SHI) is an intercantonal centre comprising four surgeons from different regions in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. These surgeons have a special interest in hernia surgery and the repair of the abdominal wall. The various types of hernia, the many possible surgical techniques, and the emergence of new materials all support the idea of a specialist team. The aim of the Swiss Hernia Institute is to offer individualised treatment to each patient.
