Pectus Excavatum Program
We’re skilled surgeons with decades of experience treating pectus excavatum, also known as concave chest, funnel chest or pectus. Our focus is always on the patient, providing thorough evaluations before determining the right course of treatment.
We are the first children's hospital to air a live video, via social media, of the Nuss procedure being performed.
Leaders in the field
Our surgeons have performed more than 700 Nuss procedures at Phoenix Children’s. Their innovative techniques are now being taught to surgeons all over the world, including Australia, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Indonesia, Russia and Turkey.
Keeping patients comfortable
Surgery brings healing, but the post-op road to recovery can be painful. Our specialized pain management team is composed of board-certified pediatric anesthesiologists with expertise in controlling and easing pain for pediatric patients.
