About the Department of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery at Academic Childrens Hospital Nuremberg

The Department of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery at the Academic Childrens Hospital Nuremberg offers the full range of diagnostic and therapeutic services in this field. The specialization of the department covers the treatment of diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system in childhood and adolescence, with a special role being given to controlling the growth and proper development of the child's body. The state-of-the-art technical equipment and exceptional professionalism of doctors allow them to cope even with the most complex clinical cases. The department is headed by Dr. med. Kerstin Remmel.

Of particular interest to the department’s medical team is the conservative and surgical treatment of hip diseases, as well as the developmental deformities of the legs, hands and feet of any severity.

Another important focus is the timely detection and treatment of spinal diseases. With appropriate indications, doctors try to eliminate the problem with the help of conservative methods, but in the absence of positive dynamics they perform the necessary surgical intervention. When performing spinal surgery, sparing surgical techniques, modern navigation systems are used.
