About the department

The department of pediatric orthopaedics, neuro-orthopaedics and traumatology at Helios Hospital Berlin-Buch provides young patients with combined orthopaedic treatment. The department consists of specially trained nursing staff, physiotherapists, ergo therapists, orthopaedic technicians, remedial teachers, and speech therapists. In addition, there are special curative education nurses for immediate aftercare. Modern medical technology is available for the patients, such as minimally-invasive surgery, arthroscopy, and two types of leg lengthening. Before and after the hospital stay, patients are examined in the connected orthopaedic outpatient clinic. Children with neuro-orthopaedic symptoms are also treated on an outpatient basis in the pediatric social centre of the hospital for paediatrics and adolescent medicine. There are unique parent rooms (Ronald McDonald House) to stay overnight. 

Children and young people with musculoskeletal system diseases or neuro-orthopaedic symptoms receive comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation tailored to their individual needs. This includes the so-called playful rehabilitation, conservative and surgical treatment and diagnostics.
