Conservative & operative treatment of children in Hamburg.

Our paediatric orthopaedics specialists in Hamburg treat all acquired, degenerative and inflammatory diseases in children and young people.

Our paediatric orthopaedics specialists in Hamburg treat all acquired, degenerative and inflammatory diseases in children and young people.

In our Paediatric Orthopaedics Centre in Hamburg we are specialised in the treatment of paediatric orthopaedics issues. These range from congenital to acquired, degenerative and inflammatory diseases through to tumours. We treat children - from babies through to adolescents - individually with conservative and operative therapy methods. If possible, we prefer minimally invasive, conservative OP procedures.

 

Close cooperation with therapists & orthopaedic technicians.

Through team-orientated work in close cooperation with orthopaedic technicians, physiotherapists and ergotherapists, we are able to provide our patients with comprehensive, state-of-the-art orthotics and medical aids . We always act according to the principle „of as much as necessary and as little as possible“.

In the case of complex diseases, we are also in close contact with social paediatric centres and early support & intervention bodies for optimum care of our small patients.

 

Inpatient therapy.

If an operation is necessary with an inpatient stay, we ensure treatment appropriate for children. It goes without saying that a parent can also be admitted to make the child's stay as pleasant as possible.
