The Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine at the HELIOS Hospital Hildesheim under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Karsten Harms deals with the treatment of children and adolescents from premature infants up to the full 18 years of age. The Department covers a wide range of medical fields. However, it is especially focused on pediatric surgery and pediatric cardiology. Thanks to the close cooperation with other disciplines, the specialists from other fields can be involved in the treatment process if necessary. 

Pediatric surgery is a key focus of the Department at the HELIOS Hospital Hildesheim. Pediatric surgery deals with the treatment of congenital diseases, acute diseases (inflammation of the cecum) or accidents resulting in fractures. The treatment is provided in a child-friendly ambiance. The Department specializes in the following fields: neonatal surgery (e.g. esophageal disruption, diaphragm defects), pediatric urology (urine outflow disorders, urinary tract disorders,), as well as pediatric traumatology (e.g. bone fractures, internal injuries). 

In the field of pediatric cardiology, the HELIOS Hospital Hildesheim specializes in the early detection and care of infants and children with congenital heart and vascular defects, as well as in the diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias. Since these diseases are very different in their manifestation and severity, early diagnosis is of particular importance.

In addition, the Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine at the HELIOS Hospital Hildesheim is especially competent in the treatment of congenital and acquired lung diseases (such as asthma, chronic bronchitis and cystic fibrosis).
