The physicians and nursing staff under direction of Professor Dr. Heiko Krude have specialized in treating illnesses of the gastro-intestinal tract in a manner suited for children. Close cooperation with the various departments of the Otto-Heubner-Centrum means that the young patients benefit not only from the comprehensive expertise in pediatric endocrinology and gastroenterology but also have access to the fields of pediatric anesthesiology, pediatric radiology and pediatric surgery.

The greatest possible safety for the patients and an optimal treatment concept during the entire treatment period is at the center of the team’s work. In order to fulfill this ambition, the department’s staff places high value on continuous and qualified further education and training.
