The Inselspital Bern (Bern University Hospital), a renowned hospital located in the capital of Switzerland, has been using shock wave therapy in the fields of tissue regeneration and wound healing for years.
Doctors now want to build on the positive experience and extend the range of treatments. They plan to use shock waves for the therapy of diseases of the connective tissue of the skin that were almost untreatable in the past and also for the treatment of problem scars (for example after burns or x-ray irradiation). The Inselspital Bern relies on the DUOLITH SD1 »T-Top« from STORZ MEDICAL.
Doctors at the Inselspital plan to gather clinical data on morphea (cutaneous scleroderma), cutaneous calcinosis, granuloma annulare, necrobiosis lipoidica and hidradenitis suppurativa. The Inselspital has also had good experience with the treatment of venous ulcers.
At the Inselspital Bern, Prof. Thomas Hunziker supervises the application of shock wave therapy for skin diseases.
