Pectus Excavatum Surgery


Pectus excavatum is a congenital deformity of the anterior thoracic wall in which the sternum and rib cage grow abnormally.

This produces a caved-in or sunken appearance of the chest. It can either be present at birth or not develop until puberty.

The Nuss Procedure is a minimally invasive surgery using 2 or 3 small incisions. The Nuss bar(s) are inserted and then flipped over to pop the sternum out. Stabilizers secure the bar in place while the sternum muscles reshape the chest.

After 2-3 year, the bar(s) can be removed.
