Humanitarian Work

Dr. Barandun is an active member of “Reconstructing Women International”.

In many parts of the world, women and young girls suffer disfiguring and disabling injuries and trauma – often the result of an assault or accident. Many of these afflictions are due to social traditions, a woman’s ethnic background, or simply dangerous environmental conditions that result in burns.

“Reconstructing Women International” is a non-profit organization supported by a team of female surgeons from around the world addressing the medial needs of these women, working to restore them physically and helping them to return to happy and productive lives.

Dr. Barandun is regularly involved as a senior surgeon in humanitarian camps in Bangladesh.


Formation of privat practice BelCare by Jürg Schiffmann, MD

Martin Flückiger, MD joins the team and establishes the specialty of general surgery and specifically phlebology in the following years.

1996 – 2001
Kob Wintsch, MD, a co-founder of modern plastic surgery in Switzerland, is practicing for 6 years at BelCare after he resigned from his job as head of department of plastic and handsurgery at the Cantonal Hospital Aarau.

Voja Lazic, MD joins the team. He strengthens the important focus on handsurgery further.

Generation change at BelCare. Ilario Fulco, MD joins in 2014 and takes over plastic surgery in the following 2 years. After the retirement of Jürg Schiffmann, MD in Summer 2016, Marina Barandun, MD joins to further reinforce the focus on plastic surgery. Dr. Fulco and Dr. Barandun have been working together for many years at the University Hospital Basel and are now the new team for plastic surgery at BelCare.


Our practice facilities are located near the Aarau train station and consist of several treatment and office rooms. We offer surgical procedures in our own, certified operating room (Kat. OP1) as day surgery or short-term inpatient treatment. We work with the safest and most state-of-the-art medical products and continuously adapt them to current developments. Our competent and professional staff and partners make sure that your stay will be as comfortable as possible.
