About the department

The Department of Pediatric Surgery and Urology at the Academic Hospital Nuremberg under the direction of Dr. med. Karl Bodenschatz provides children with high quality medical care. Children receive the best medical care, operational methods with the least number of incisions and pain therapy adopted to the individual needs of children, as well as a friendly atmosphere in which each child is treated with great attention and respect. 

It goes without saying that sick children need special attention and special treatments. Sometimes children react sensitively to the necessary treatments. The department’s staff is very well prepared to provide children with the best possible healthcare.

The Department of Pediatric Surgery and Urology offers the full spectrum of pediatric general surgeries. Wherever possible, physicians of the department use minimally invasive surgical techniques in an effort to reduce pain and shorten the time of hospital stay. To provide both diagosis and treatment, the Hospital Nuremberg has well-proven, modern and innovative technologies and techniques, including a special pediatric radiology facility.

The priority areas of the department are:

  • Urology
