Department of Neonatology

Neonates suffering from diseases or disorders and premature babies receive expert care by Professor Dr. Christoph Bürer and his team. Physicians and nursing staff alike at the Department of Neonatology are highly specialized and cooperate closely with the Department of Obstetrics, the Otto Hübner Center for Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine and other specialists in the entire Charité.


  • Treatment of neonates with extremely low birth weight
  • Treatment of neonates with congenital malformations
  • Treatment of neonates after complicated pregnancies


Both locations offer 24/7 service by experienced physicians. The team strongly promotes mother-child bonding and family-centered therapies. The department’s focus on high-risk neonates who often stay at Charité for a long period of time has prompted research projects on psychosocial care for parents of multimorbid children and on early rehabilitation of premature babies.
