About us Prof. Dr. med. Ralf-Bodo Tröbs

Dear children, dear parents,

Thank you for your interest in this website. My name is Ralf-Bodo Tröbs. I am a specialist in pediatric surgery and during my professional career I have gained extensive experience in the field of pediatric surgical diseases.

In our clinic, the medical and nursing staff is specially trained to meet the needs of newborns, infants and children. Our medical care includes a comprehensive consultation prior to treatment, including the explanation of alternative treatment methods to surgery. If a surgery is necessary, minimally invasive techniques (keyhole surgery) are used whenever possible after consulting with you.

Our principles

  • Child-oriented diagnostics and treatment
  • Understanding, attention and respect
  • Patient safety
  • Intercultural competence
