What is chest wall deformity?
The service treats patients with pectus excavatum (funnel chest) and pectus carinatum (pigeon chest) or variations. The aim of the service is to correct the deformity, as well as improving function and wellbeing for the patient.
The service provides a multidisciplinary approach to assessment and surgical reconstruction, or bracing and follow-up care.
