Dr. Hubert Vuagnat
University Hospitals of Geneva &
World Alliance for Wound & Lymphedema Care
He studied in Geneva where he graduated as a MD in 1989 and first began training in surgery before discovering rehabilitation in which he was certified in 1996, both from the Swiss and European Boards of PMR.
In 1997, he was honored by the prize of the European academy of physical medicine and rehabilitation for his thesis work on “early bone biochemical markers changes in spinal cord injury”.
From 1998 to 2006, he headed the rehabilitation team in a sub-acute, middle and long stay rehab setting in the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG).
In 2007, he was appointed as head of this division.
From 1995 on, he collaborated at the HUG woundcare policy, and participated at the creation of the Swiss woundcare association.
Since 2006, he is deeply involved in promoting and teaching both simple modern woundcare methods and linked rehabilitation in low resourced countries.
At the end of 2014, he was awarded the ACRM’s Edward LOWMANN award for his profound commitment to interdisciplinarity and professionality.
He is dedicated to a holistic patient’s approach.
Born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1961, Dr Vuagnat is married to Anne-Marie and the happy father of three young adults.
