Pediatric orthopedics – cutting-edge medicine for children and adolescents
We look after our child and adolescent patients in a caring atmosphere with a dedicated sympathetic approach. Our team is concerned with the clinical and scientific diagnostic investigation and treatment of congenital and acquired orthopedic diseases of infants, children, and young people.
Thanks to the cooperation with the Zurich University Children’s Hospital, we can offer your child ideal care according to his or her individual needs. Medical treatment and surgery are offered at both facilities and Professor Thomas Dreher, the Senior Consultant in Pediatric orthopedics, will decide on the appropriate location to ensure optimal treatment for your child.
