Welcome to PMI.

PMI is a brain storming group of people concentrating on modern and innovative pediatric medicine, innovative ideas in the clinical field of pediatrics and pediatric surgery for helping children in their daily life and treatment in pediatric departments and ambulatory settings.

PMI was founded in 2010 in Germany to combine daily pediatric work with innovative research projects. In the last 10 years, cooperations were realized with international researchers and hospitals. We are very happy about the great interest of our work. All members of PMI are innovative thinking personalities, working idealistic in a non-profit manner.

Research interests are based on clinical studies of rare diseases like COVID-19, Alice in Wonderland Syndrome, Hydranencephaly and other rare diseases in childhood. Anthroposophic therapeutics like medical honey for wound management play also an important role in pediatric care. Moreover we focus on innovative research in virtual reality, social roboters (Avatar) and artificial intelligence in pediatrics. All manuscripts and works done by PMI are non-profitial and not supported by any grants.

The best for our children.

Best wishes,

Stefan Bittmann
