Paediatric Pulmonologist Heidelberg

Acute and chronic diseases of the respiratory tract have increased in recent years in children and adolescents as well as various allergic diseases (allergic rhinoconjunctivitis allergica, hay fever, atopic eczema, neurodemitis, food and insect venom allergies). Prevention against existing risk factors is therefore just as important as early diagnosis and treatment. It is not just a question of treating the symptoms and medical conditions, but the chances of being able to treat the causes in the child age and to prevent, for instance, the change of floors in allergic diseases or their development to bronchial asthma, are the greatest.

We are the competent contact persons for your children and you, who take enough time for consultation and the necessary examinations to assure the best possible therapy for your child.
