About us

In the Cnopf Children’s Hospital, one of the longest-standing hospitals for children and adolescents in Germany, everything is done in order to arrange as comfortable and problem-free as possible a hospital stay for parents and children. For this purpose, skilled specialists and nursing staff collaborate closely in surroundings designed for children. In the Paediatric Emergency Clinic, we treat emergencies at times when your local paediatrician has no consultations.
The main Department of Paediatric Surgery and Paediatric Urology under Prof. Maximilian Stehr cares for neonates, children and adolescents in two wards with 42 beds. Thanks to our decades of experience, we are optimally tuned to the young patients and their parents, both in out-patient treatment and in in-patient treatment.
Our highest goal is to achieve a maximum of safety, freedom from pain and anxiety, as well as comfort for the patient. Our heart is set on the welfare of our little patients. So, for example, it is always possible to spend the night with your child in the hospital, in order to be with him around the clock.
Any treatment, above all, any surgical treatment, requires a differentiated preliminary diagnosis. These required preliminary examinations can all be performed at the Cnopf Children’s Hospital. Together with X-ray and endoscopic diagnostics, we also perform measurements to determine pressure ratios in organs (manometry) and long-term acid/base measurement (pH measurement). For complex conditions, comprehensive follow-up care is crucial for treatment success. We also tend to the complete recovery of your child following discharge in out-patient appointments fortreatment.
