Dr. Henri-Auguste Widmer, an esteemed Swiss clinician, founded Clinique Valmont in 1905. Widmer studied with Charcot in Paris, devoting his efforts towards understanding nutritional, nervous, and digestive disorders. Now operating for over a century, the clinic provides high-quality healthcare for patients seeking medical expertise in a tranquil locale. It specialises in orthopaedic, neurologic, and respiratory rehabilitation.

Areas of specialisation
Clinique Valmont provides world-class healthcare, ensuring every patient receives the highest possible standards throughout their programme. A team of multidisciplinary healthcare experts views patients as individuals and caters treatments towards their specific needs—this fully bespoke approach achieves consistently strong results. Each patient embarks on a personal healing journey, from pre-evaluation to treatment and extensive aftercare. The process follows a holistic approach for optimal results.
Patients are either admitted as inpatients or attended to as outpatients, depending on their specific circumstances and needs. After an initial assessment, staff will administer numerous exercises to allow patients to hone their cognitive/motor abilities, including mobility, sensitivity, speech, dexterity, mobility, and strength.
The institute’s neurological rehabilitation programs restore the patient’s primary cognitive functions and motor skills, which are vital for everyday life—thus significantly reducing the ill effects of their disability. Each structured programme has been developed for specific conditions and adapted to the patient’s unique needs.
Diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation are available for patients with:
Orthopaedic rehabilitation helps relieve suffering from inflammatory or degenerative diseases in the joints, bones, or spinal column. The approach also serves to heal fractures, either with or without prosthetic implants.

Clinique Valmont blends the best possible treatments and techniques with research-driven, evidence-based practices to expedite the recovery process, whether from surgery or a sports injury.
A team of elite rehabilitation specialists coordinate with rheumatologists and orthopaedic surgeons to offer a high level of support and care. This approach allows patients to regain their strength and get back to enjoying the things they love.
Respiratory rehabilitation is a vital process that allows patients to recover from the ill effects of coronavirus.
Although most patients suffer no long-lasting effects from COVID-19, those with age-related vulnerabilities and pre-existing medical conditions often require a targeted therapeutic program.
A pulmonary condition can appear—or persist—long after hospitalisation, especially if the patient was ill enough to enter an ICU or require respiratory assistance (a ventilator).
