The interdisciplinary team
Dr Petra Elias
FMH Specialist in Gynaecology and Obstetrics
During my time as Consultant in the Women’s Hospital at the Baden Cantonal Hospital I set up and managed the local Centre for Bladder and Pelvic Health. It is the first such centre in Switzerland to meet the requirements for certification to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008.
I am delighted to have this opportunity to share my many years of experience in this field with you.
Pelvic floor physiotherapist
I have 15 years’ experience in the specialist field of pelvic floor physiotherapy. For many years I have been President of the ‘pelvisuisse’ association, working to promote qualified female physiotherapists with specialist training in pelvic floor physiotherapy; I also help train students in pelvic floor physiotherapy as part of CAS programmes.
After many years as a registered nurse in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology, I undertook further training as a urotherapist, and was subsequently involved in setting up and expanding the urogynaecological outpatient clinic at the hospital in Männedorf.
