About the department
The Department of Pediatric Surgery at the University Hospital Giessen UKGM offers the treatment of all surgical diseases in children, ranging from fetal surgery to the treatment of premature and newborn babies, as well as adolescents under the age of 15 years. The department is headed by Dr. med. Jens G. Riedel.
Particular emphasis in the department’s clinical practice is placed on neonatal surgery, surgical treatment of congenital malformations, abdominal pediatric surgery, cancer surgery and plastic surgery. A competent medical team takes care of young patients. It provides optimal therapy while paying due attention to all the features of a young growing body.

An important role is also given to interdisciplinary cooperation with the Departments of Pediatrics, Pediatric Radiology, Anesthesiology, Obstetrics and Gynecology. In addition, a striking feature of the department is the conduction of complex diagnostic tests under short-term anesthesia (for example, MRI), the diagnostics and treatment of malformations immediately after birth (Level I Perinatal Center).
