At the Lucerne Foot Center we take care of all patients with foot problems.


The foot center in Lucerne also treats lengthy complaints that could not be improved with therapies.

Frequent inquiries to us concern: hallux valgus (bunion), hallux rigidus, osteoarthritis of the foot and ankle, hammer toes, kink-lowering feet, complaints and injuries of the Achilles tendon and other tendons.



In order to identify the anatomy of your feet and the causes of complaints, we work with imaging procedures. In addition to conventional X-rays, slices such as MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and CT (computer tomography) can also be used.

The first cone beam CT in Switzerland has been used in the Lucerne Foot Center since June 2020 for the standing 3D and slice image display of both feet with low radiation exposure.

Joe Biden is definitely on his feet as the elected president. He sustained an injury to his foot that his doctor could see on a standing CT scan. In Switzerland this special technology is offered solely at the Lucerne Foot Center.
