La Source-CHUV
Centre for robotic surgery _


The Centre is operated jointly by doctors from La Source and the CHUV, and accepts patients with or without complementary insurance.

The creation of this Centre, located at the Clinique de La Source, marks the beginnings of a promising collaboration between La Source and the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois CHUV. By entering into an innovative public/private partnership in the realm of health, La Source and the CHUV aim to utilise state-of-the-art equipment as efficiently as possible in a region the size of the Canton of Vaud, as well as share skillsets in order to provide the best technology possible to their patients.

Devoted to urology, visceral surgery, gynaecology and ENT surgery, the Centre is used by both doctors from the CHUV and La Source and treats patients with or without supplementary insurance.
