Chest Wall Center

Phoenix Children’s is the only pediatric hospital in Arizona to be named “Best Children’s Hospital” by U.S. News & World Report.

Our Chest Wall Center is also a recognized leader in caring for children and young adults with pectus excavatum and other chest wall deformities:

  • Phoenix Children’s Hospital has become one of the country’s top destinations for the Nuss procedure to treat pectus.
  • Three of the top five pectus surgeons in North America are at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Mayo Clinic Arizona.
  • Our team has performed more than 1,000 Nuss procedures. That’s 1,000 children and young adult who are now breathing easier and once again enjoying friends, family and physical activity.
  • Phoenix Children’s Chest Wall Center recently performed its 500th cryoablation. This is a game-changer for patients who undergo the Nuss procedure for pectus excavatum (a.k.a. sunken chest).
