Dear patients, dear parents and children, dear colleagues,

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Oliver Muensterer
Univ.-Prof. Dr. Oliver Muensterer

in December 2017 the department of pediatric surgery at the University Medical Center Mainz celebrated its 40th anniversary. Throughout this time, our clinic made history. In the 1980s, the first  Peña/deVries PSARP operation to correct an anorectal malformation and one of the first Kasai operations for biliary atresia in Germany were performed here in Mainz. In the following decades, our department became particularly renowned internationally for innovative minimally invasive pediatric surgery. We always strive to offer all of our patients the most effective and gentle treatment.

Pediatric Surgery at the University Medicine Mainz offers a broad spectrum including general pediatric surgery, neonatal surgery, burn surgery, pediatric trauma, pediatric urosurgery, pediatric gynecology, pediatric tumor surgery, as well as the correction of congenital malformations, surgery on the foregut (esophagus, stomach, lung, Liver, biliary tract) and colorectal pediatric surgery. In order to keep the team's expertise up-to-date in all these subspecialties, each of these particular areas is represented by one of our attending surgeons who act as corresponding section chiefs responsible for the respective clinical care, research and teaching. As a result, we always guarantee our patients the best possible state-of-the-art treatment.

If your child or patient needs surgical treatment, please contact us
( or make an appointment in our clinic (schedule appointments at 06131 17 4450).

We are also happy to offer you a telephone or telemedical second opinion, both for parents and colleagues ( Our goal is to provide your child with the best possible pediatric surgical care. Care that in our department is innovative out of tradition. That is my promise!

Yours truly,
