About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Pediatric Orthopedics, Reconstruction of Malformations and Foot Surgery at the University Hospital Münster treats both children and adults. Pediatric orthopedics mostly deals with the treatment of hip joints, foot malformations and congenital hand and feet malformations. The Department annually treats 5,000 patients. With annual 2,000 sonographic examinations of the hip, the Department is a leading specialized center of North Rhine-Westphalia. The chief physician of the Department is Prof. Dr. med. Robert Rödl.

Other key focuses of the Department of Pediatric Orthopedics, Reconstruction of Malformations and Foot Surgery at the University Hospital Münster include orthopedic aspects of rare diseases.

Robert Rödl can treat all aspects of these diseases quite professionally.

To treat various malformations, including leg length difference, leg curvatures and bone defects, the physicians of the Department use external fixators, which lengthen intraosseous pins and plates with angular stability.
