Pectus Carinatum Surgery

(757) 668-6877

CHKD's surgeons perform minimally invasive pectus carinatum surgery when bracing cannot correct the condition.

About The Surgery

Based on the Nuss Procedure, minimally invasive pectus carinatum surgery introduces a curved bar through small incisions made on either side of the chest. The bar is placed under the muscles of the chest and over the sternum, immediately depressing the chest protrusion.

The bars are anchored to the ribs with special stabilizers and remain in place for several years, allowing the chest cartilage to harden in the correct position.
