Department of Pediatrics, 2nd Medical Faculty, Charles University and University Hospital Motol

Basic information

Dear friends, colleagues, co-workers and sponsors, pediatric patients and their parents!

The Department of Pediatrics of the 2nd Faculty of Medicine of Charles University and the University Hospital in Motol was established in 2004 by merging the work teams of the former I. children's clinic and a significant part of the former II. children's clinic. It is a continuation of their mission - to provide highly specialized and erudite care to children from all over the Czech Republic, whose doctors or parents have requested it. The team of the Pediatric Clinic creates a natural professional background, the "ultimum refugium", for all Czech and Moravian pediatricians, whether they work in children's clinics of teaching hospitals, district children's wards or work as general practitioners for children and adolescents. We are ready to help you and your patients whenever you deem it necessary.

You also meet the staff of the Pediatric Clinic in undergraduate and postgraduate education in pediatrics and its subspecializations, in organizational activities in the care of sick children at the national level and in clinical research and development of biomedical knowledge for the benefit of pediatric patients.

In almost all areas of pediatrics and adolescent medicine, the Pediatric Clinic has highly qualified specialists who provide top diagnostics and therapy - in pediatric nephrology, dialysis and elimination methods, pediatric pneumology, allergology and care for children with cystic fibrosis, pediatric endocrinology and diabetology. , in pediatric gastroenterology and in the care of children with autoimmune diseases. In cooperation with partner workplaces of the Motol University Hospital, we also provide cardiological, immunological and hematological care.

The credo of the Pediatric Clinic team is "partnership for the benefit of pediatric patients". We are here for you and your patients. Our strength lies in the team experience, in the quality equipment and in the cooperation of the pediatric think tank of the Motol hospital. We strive for straightforward, fast and effective diagnosis and therapy with maximum care for our common pediatric patients.

Our work would be more difficult without sponsors, who make a significant contribution to the renewal and expansion of the clinic's equipment, our "instruments", but also to a friendly and aesthetic environment for our patients. Many thanks to all our sponsors, the clinic team and our patients.

Thanks also go to all Czech and Moravian pediatricians in primary care and inpatient facilities. We highly value their daily endless efforts. It is thanks to them and their work that the sick children who need it most come to us. We thank them for recommending and sending these patients to us. I am sure that it is through our joint efforts that we achieve the maximum possible for the well-being of sick children.

Information for patients

The Pediatric Clinic of the Motol University Hospital is a specialized pediatric institution which, in addition to medical and preventive care for young patients, also deals with teaching and research. Due to the high professional level of its physicians, the clinic ranks among the so-called "supraconsiliary workplaces" - it normally acts as an advisory body for other workplaces and physicians who may need advice or professional guidance in some very complex and rare care situations for pediatric patients.

The clinic has 90 beds, of which 30 are intensive care beds. They are divided into 5 departments and an outpatient dialysis-transplant unit for patients with chronic kidney disease. The clinic also includes a gastroenterology laboratory and a laboratory for molecular genetics.

You can find contacts for individual workplaces in the Contact section, more about individual ones working groups can be found in the Workgroups tab.

Center for Diagnosis and Treatment of Ciliary Epithelial Disorders (Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia)

The Center for Ciliary Epithelial Disorders at the University Hospital in Motol is the main workplace in the Czech Republic providing diagnosis and treatment for patients with this congenital disorder.

The Motol Center has been dealing with this topic for many years, in the last few years the center's equipment has been significantly improved and diagnostic methods and treatment procedures have been introduced in the form usual in most developed countries. It was also possible to significantly increase the detection of patients with this disorder, which allows for the timely introduction of medical care and thus improve the prognosis. Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare disease, its incidence in our country is expected to be similar to that of cystic fibrosis, ie about 600 individuals. However, we still lack to detect about 500 patients with this number. They may be hiding under other diagnoses and thus do not receive proper comprehensive care. Their disease then unnecessarily causes them a number of significant problems and unnecessarily damages the lung tissue. We are therefore trying to raise awareness of this disease both among the general public and among health professionals.

Detailed information about our center and the disease can be found on the website www.rasinky.cz

Our workplace is a full member of the European Reference Network (ERN-LUNG). ERN-LUNG is dedicated to providing and supporting the care of patients suffering from rare respiratory diseases on a global scale. It is committed to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of rare respiratory diseases through very high levels of patient care, education and research.

We are also part of the Clinical Trial Network (CTN), which will give PCD patients access to experimental drugs, the development of which gives much hope. In the case of PCD, drugs have not yet been developed to address the underlying cause of the disease. However, clinical trials do not forget the treatment of complications associated with the underlying disease, which include clinical trials of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs to treat lung infections and inflammation.

Center for highly specialized care for rare liver diseases 

Our center is part of the European Reference Network for Rare Liver Diseases (ERN RARE-LIVER). These are highly specialized centers, which were created in order to improve the quality of care for patients with rare diseases and the possibility of mutual international scientific cooperation.

The Motol Center is part of a consortium with the Department of Hepatogastroenterology of the Prague Institute of Clinical and Experimental Medicine (IKEM, www.ikem.cz), which is the largest center for liver disease in the Czech Republic and specializes in the care of patients included in the liver transplant program. The Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology at FNM provides a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic methods and procedures in the field of diseases of the digestive tract and liver. It is an accredited workplace in the field and the largest children's hepatology center in the Czech Republic. It provides care for patients with acute and chronic liver disease, especially patients with biliary atresia, genetic cholestatic disease, including Allagill's syndrome, as well as patients with autoimmune hepatitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis or Wilson's disease.
