In the centre for paediatric surgery patients are treated from birth up to the age of 18.
The care of patients and their parents often starts already with the prenatal counselling of expectant parents regarding a prenatally recognised disease. After the birth a treatment plan is developed together with the physicians and neonatal intensive care.
In cases of complex malformations, we work closely together with the highly specialized physicians of paediatrics, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery and orthopaedics. We are always looking for a useful implementation of the necessary diagnostics and therapy in a way appropriate for children.
There are one, two and multi-bed rooms available on the ward for the medical attendance before and after the surgery. Our department for emergencies and medical clarification is open 24 hours daily.
For the outpatients is also taken care in special consultation hours by the respective specialists in the following areas:
- Trauma Surgery
- General Paediatric Surgery
- Paediatric Urology
- Plastic Surgery and hemangiomas
- Disturbances of bladder and rectum
- Malformations of abdominal wall
- Thoracic wall deformities
We use all current methods of diagnosis and therapy:
Ultramodern CT and MRI workplaces are available around the clock within the Asklepios Children´s Hospital. We run a function laboratory for examination of dysphagia as well as voiding disorders of bladder and rectum.
In the operating room, endoscopy equipment suitable for children is available for the examination of the oesophagus, gastrointestinal tract, the trachea, the respiratory tract and the bladder. Abdominal surgery and interventions on the thorax can be performed minimally invasive endoscopic ("keyhole surgery").
For surgical treatment two operating rooms are available every day.
