Welcome to the Department of Pediatric Surgery

Dear patients, dear parents and colleagues,

our department takes great pride in specialized surgical care for children and adolescents of all ages on the highest level. We are the only Department of Pediatric Surgery at a university medical center in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate. Our specialist team provides surgical care for the complete spectrum of pediatric surgery including burns and trauma care. In addition to being one of Germanies leading centers for minimal-invasive surgery in infancy and childhood, we take a national leading role in the use of Telemedicine in our field.

We understand the needs of our patients and their families and work constantly to make your stay as comfortable as possible. In order to provide an international standard of care, we rely on Sterntaler e.V., a society founded for the support of children with surgical problems and their families (www.sterntaler-mainz.de).

Does your child require surgery? For any questions or to schedule a visit, please contact our e-mail at  kic@unimedizin-mainz.de or call our outpatient clinic to set up an appointment (Monday - Friday 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., Phone +49 6131 17 4450).
