 Overview
Dr. Christopher Gitzelmann was awarded his medical degree from the University of Zurich Medical School in 1991. From there he successfully completed his residency in general surgery at the University Hospital of Zurich. Following this training, Dr. Gitzelmann pursued a post doctoral research fellowship at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD, where he focused on the immunological benefits of laparoscopic surgery versus open surgery. He then went on to complete his Pediatric Surgery fellowship at the University Children's Hospital of Zurich.

Dr. Gitzelmann later held the faculty positions of Attending pediatric surgeon, Director of Minimally Invasive Surgery, Co-Director of Neonatal, Abdominal and Thoracic surgery. In addition he acted as a consultant within the Department of Intensive Care and Neonatology at the University Children's Hospital of Zurich.

Dr. Gitzelmann joined the Golisano Children's Hospital and the University of Rochester in early 2010 bringing with him an expertise in highly specialized pediatric laparoscopic surgical cases. Specifically, he specializes on minimally invasive laparoscopic treatment of anorectal malformations such as Hirschsprung's disease, where a section of the intestines does not work properly or for newborns with high imperforate anus. In addition to these sub-specialized procedures, Dr. Gitzelmann accepts and treats all pediatric general surgery diseases.
