Board-certified chiropractor


As a board-certified orthopedic surgeon I specialize in the treatment of spinal deseases.

My areas of expertise include the conservative and surgical treatment of degenerative changes of the spine (e.g. endoscopic and microsurgical disc surgery, minimal invasive spinal surgeries and complex revision surgeries).

As a board-certified chiroptractor I am familiar with the entire field of manual therapy.

Anthony Ghaffari started his professional career in the United States in cancer research at the Johns Hopkins University in his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. He subsequently attended the University of Sydney School of Medicine in Australia where he graduated with the degree of MBBS in 2002. Around the same time he took the US medical board exams and received his MD degree. Shortly after obtaining his medical degrees he moved to Switzerland and commenced a post-doctoral fellowship in neuro-oncology research at the University of Basel.

In 2012, Anthony Ghaffari returned to Switzerland and took a position as a staff surgeon and junior consultant in the spine surgery branch of the orthopedics department at the Olten County Hospital. Since 2016, he has been working in his capacity as an affiliated surgeon with privilege in various hospitals here in Zurich at the Private Clinic Bethanien, and in Bern at the Hirslanden Clinic Salem, and the Private Clinic Siloah.
