How Boston Children’s Hospital approaches pectus excavatum
Boston Children’s General Surgery Program evaluates and treats infants, children and young adults using state-of-the-art operative methods to improve the quality of life for each child entrusted to our care.
Our surgeons prefer to operate on children with pectus excavatum, if they operate at all, during the child's teen years. By then, they're through most of their growth spurts so recurrence is far less likely.
