Advanced Pectus Course, May 27-28
CHKD thoracic specialists Dr. Robert E. Kelly and Dr. Michael Goretsky will be joined by Dr. Donald Nuss, inventor of the Nuss procedure, this year for a conference at Phoneix Children's Hospital. The Nuss technique has changed markedly. Improved techniques for decreased bar rotation, elimination of intercostal stripping, and safer passage of the bars under the sternum have been developed. The course will also cover modifications for adult pectus patients, techniques for recurrent or failed prior surgery, and modifications for mixed defects.
