Pectus excavatum - nuss procedure

(1 Post)

My dd is 16 and has recently become aware after a very big growth spurt that he has a sunken chest (pectus excavatum).
His is not extreme but he is quite conscious of it and I've been researching the nuss procedure on line which seems to have good results but seems to have a very painful recovery period.
Has anyone had this procedure or know anyone who has undergone this operation? I would be grateful if anyone can give me any information.
