Professor Wagner took charge of the Department of Paediatric and Adolescent Medicine at the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen in February 2007. He previously worked at the University Hospital Bonn, the Institute for Genetics at the University of Cologne and held a scholarship at Harvard Medical School in Boston. Most recently, he was in charge of the Westphalian Children’s Centre in Dortmund. His medical expertise lies in the fields of gastrointestinal disorders and rheumatism in children.

Each year, approximately 4,500 children benefit from the medical care provided
by this department, which has its own intensive care unit and an interdisciplinary ward for children who have undergone surgery. MRI diagnostics for children is available. The department can also accommodate one parent acting as a chaperone. A certified specialist is always present on the team, even in the
case of rare diseases.
