About the department

The department of pediatric allergology and asthma at M1 Private Clinic Munich offers high-standard medical care for allergy-related conditions and asthma. The department features two doctors with extensive experience in this field. They use the latest, most effective treatment and diagnostic options. It is important to note that there is an allergy laboratory with modern and reliable equipment serving as an additional powerful diagnostic tool. More than 20,000 diagnostic tests are run at the allergy laboratory annually. More than 100 different allergen components can be detected. All types of treatment modes are available, either inpatient, semi-residential or outpatient. All medical services are provided according to the German Society for Allergology and Clinical Immunology (DGAKI) standards. 

The department's specialisation is pediatric allergology and asthma, all types of hypersensitivity in children and adolescents. Treatment of such conditions is predominantly conservative, using medication. Sometimes, lifestyle modification is essential, and doctors here can provide training for each diagnosis.
