What We Offer
The New Nuss Center
The new Nuss Center, which opened in June 2016, offers additional and larger exam rooms to accommodate more patients. The rooms are large enough to allow family to be together comfortably during a visit. The center also has space for patients and family to meet
one-on-one with the surgery scheduler.
At CHKD, your child will have access to our team of pediatric surgeons, nurses and medical specialists who pioneered the
Nuss Procedure, now considered the gold standard for the surgical treatment of pectus excavatum. Thousands of parents have trusted their children’s care to CHKD.
CHKD has performed more pectus excavatum surgeries than any facility in the United States and remains a major training site for surgeons and a center for research on chest wall deformities.
