Dr. Möhrlen studied medicine in Zurich, completing his degree in 2000. He then trained as a general surgeon at Männedorf Hospital and at Waid City Hospital in Zurich before undergoing training as a pediatric surgeon at University Children’s Hospital Zurich (under Profs. Stauffer and Meuli). He is an FMH-certified pediatric surgeon, a Physician in Charge of the Department of Visceral, Neonatal, and Fetal Surgery, and Head of Minimally Invasive Surgery within the Department of Pediatric Surgery at University Children’s Hospital Zurich.


In addition, he undertook a year and a half of further clinical training specifically in visceral surgery and fetal surgery at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (the world’s largest and most important center for fetal surgery). Along with minimally invasive surgery, his principal areas of clinical activity are neonatal surgery, prenatal counseling, and fetal surgery. His research activity is focused primarily on the immune response in laparoscopic procedures.
