The need for information on medical issues is growing. Especially those affected who face medical questions and problems also look for answers to their individual questions on the internet. Unfortunately, the online information from the search engine results of Google and Co. is not always accurate and in many cases not sufficiently well-founded. As a result, many people move in a grey area between self-diagnosis with not always reliable information and the need for a profound and, above all, factually correct diagnosis by the respective medical specialists.

The experts at Swiss1Chirurgie have long recognised the need for comprehensive and, above all, professional information and offer comprehensive information options on specialist medical questions in the respective service areas on the websites of Swiss1Chirurgie, the Centre for Bariatric Surgery ZFBC, the Gastroenterology Group Practice GGP Bern and the Bern Clinic PZBE.

Swiss1Chirurgie Podcasts – Listening instead of reading

The podcasts, which are offered on the initiative and under the content supervision of Dr. Jörg Zehetner, are a relatively new information service for the medical layperson but also for specialist colleagues.

This means that there is also a professional information service for those affected, who can get an initial overview of diagnoses, medical interventions, surgical techniques and aftercare as well as accompanying services.

Podcasts on the following topics are currently available:

  • Medical knowledge – Obesity (Complex bariatric surgery)
  • Medical expertise and expert advice on Radio Bern1
  • Swiss1Chirurgie informs patients and endocrinologists (overweight surgery possible from BMI 30 with diabetes)
  • Gastric balloon only a “crutch” for overweight patients
  • Inguinal hernias and modern 3-D net care
  • Abdominal wall hernias, closure with net insertion

Further podcasts are in the works and are constantly expanding the range of information for patients but also for referring doctors.

With the podcasts, Swiss1Chirurgie, as an obesity expert centre and hernia centre, has created an extended information option that makes knowledge available and at the same time provides the appropriate recommendations.

It is important to note that those affected by a surgical problem can also contact the Swiss1Chirurgie clinics in Bern, Brig and Solothurn directly at any time. In this way, well-founded diagnoses can be made for individual “suspicious cases”, which enable professional further treatment.
