About us

The Hofklinik team offers highly qualified medical care for patients with both simple and complex sleep disorders. It is composed of specialists with experience in sleep medicine (neurology, psychiatry, pneumology, psychology, sleep technicians and nurses). The clear advantage of our multidisciplinary sleep center is the presence of a wide depth and breadth of expertise available at one institution.

We often collaborate with other specialists (including pneumologists, ENT - otorhinolaryngologists, dentists and oro-maxillofacial surgeons, neurologists, cardiologists) to evaluate and treat different sleep disorders. An example of such collaboration is the close cooperation with the swiss experts on Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulation Therapy (tongue pacemaker) for Sleep Apnea in the Hospital of Liestal, Baselland.
