Specialist Centre for Paediatric Orthopaedics - Our Team

Specialist Centre for Paediatric Orthopaedics

Orthopaedics for children at Schoen Clinic

Specialists in orthopaedic conditions in children

We provide surgical and conservative treatment of acquired and/or congenital orthopaedic diseases as well as of complex syndromes in your child. 

Our team, which consists of doctors, physiotherapists, ergotherapists and orthopaedic technicians, is characterised by many years of experience in paediatric orthopaedics and very close cooperation.

The concept of interdisciplinary care in cooperation with other departments in our house, such as, for example, spinal surgery and paediatric neurology, further ensures the optimal, individual treatment of little patients when required and is unique within Germany in this form.

The three pillars of paediatric orthopaedics treatment

Conservative treatment

Within the framework of conservative treatment, we offer you and your child problem-oriented, development-promoting and accompanying physiotherapy, as well as ergotherapy that is tailored to the individual patient and provision of aids that aims to make coping with everyday life as effective, but also as simple as possible, for the person affected and for their parents or carers.

Surgical therapy

Surgical treatment is only carried out when conservative therapy no longer appears to be sensible or has been without success.

This ranges...

  • from minimally invasive procedures and simple soft-tissue techniques (e.g. lengthening of tendons)
  • to complex corrections of extremities as well as the lengthening of these using fixators and corrective osteotomy
  • to multidimensional pelvic reconstructions.

All surgical procedures are also always complemented by conservative measures.

Orthopaedic treatment

In addition to conservative treatment and surgical treatment we supply your child with accompanying orthoses, which are always based on the most up-to-date orthopaedic technology and range from straightforward braces to complex prosthetic replacements for the extremities.
