About us

The Schmerzklinik Kirschgartenc was founded in 1978 by the rheumatologist G. Kaganas. In 1986 the clinic was taken over by Gallacchi Guido and two other doctors.

The name was changed from Schmerzklinik Kirschgarten to Schmerzklinik Basel in 2010. In late 2013 the process of integrating the clinic into the Swiss Medical Network started and by February 2014 the clinic was fully integrated.
