Curriculum Vitae

Dr Moritz Dau’s first degree focused on orthopaedics, sports medicine and emergency medicine. He came to Switzerland in 2003, drawn by his great love of the countryside and mountains. In 2005 he worked for a knee and shoulder specialist in Bern, from 2007 for over three years at the Schulthess Clinic in Zurich with a focus on orthopaedics/rheumatology, sports medicine and spinal surgery, and from 2010 on he worked for almost five years at the Pain Clinic in Basel, primarily in interventional pain management. As a mountain and expedition doctor, he has accompanied numerous tours in the Alps, Andes and Himalayas and as an emergency doctor he manned the Airglacier rescue helicopter in Lauterbrunnen for a year. He has tended to various sports clubs and teams and has many years of experience treating amateur, professional and top athletes. During his extensive training, he has gained additional qualifications in sports medicine, manual medicine, interventional pain management and ultrasound on the musculoskeletal system. In addition to his practical work, he has been a long-time lecturer at the Academy for Naturopathy in Basel and is regularly invited to be a guest speaker at congresses and training courses. He is a consultant and instructor for minimally invasive injection techniques, especially in the spine. Since 2015 he has been a partner and location manager of Orthopädie am Rhy in Rheinfelden.

Range of services

Dr Moritz Dau specialises in conservative and interventional treatment/management methods for the entire musculoskeletal system, in particular the spine. His focus is on diagnostic ultrasound and interventional pain management as well as manual medicine and sports medicine. His treatment methods collectively aim to heal without surgical intervention and in full knowledge of the surgical options. Multimodal treatment concepts are established individually, with an emphasis on scientifically proven “evidence based” medicine. Dr Moritz Dau has specialised in biological regenerative medicine since the early days of his career, with PRP autologous blood therapy playing an important role.
