Paedriatic Orthopaedics

Setting the course for a healthy growth: Our department specialises in the treatment and comprehensive care in Children with muscosceletal disorders.

Not only adults but also small patients can already have problems with the musculoskeletal system. In paediatric orthopaedics, we specialise in the early detection and treatment of congenital anatomical malformations in children. It is just as important to include individual growth in the treatment as it is to involve the parents.

In early childhood most corrections can be performed much more gently than later in adulthood. Hip dysplasia, for example, can be detected by an ultrasound examination in the first weeks of life. If diagnosed in time, the malformation heals within a few weeks by wearing spreader pants or a spreader splint. An early intervention is also important if scoliosis, a curvature of the spine, is suspected. If this disease is not treated in time, it can lead to severe physical limitations in adulthood.

Our treatment ranges

  • Congenital anacquired foot deformities (including buckling foot, flat foot, pointed foot, hallux valgus, hallux varus congenitus, clubfoot)
  • Hip dysplasia and hip Luxation
  • Child femoral head necrosis (M. Perthes) and femoral head slip (Epiphyseolysis capitis femoris)
  • Leg shortening and axial deviations
  • spinal diseases
  • inflammatory changes in the joints including rheumatic diseases
  • Orthopedic clinical pictures with congenital syndromes
  • Orthopedic problems in adults as a result of paediatric orthopedic diseases
  • rearrangement operations to improve the statics of incipient degenerative joint changes

Our paediatric orthopaedics ensures the holistic and age-appropriate treatment of all musculoskeletal diseases in children and adolescents. We work closely with the Centre for Paediatric and Adolescent Medicine, the Social Paediatric Centre (SPC), paediatric surgery and paediatric urology as well as paediatric radiology.
