Re: Pectus Excavatum

The surgery for this is highly successful when done at the proper age. The son of a friend had it done around age 13. He will have the hardware removed next year (16). I suggest your parents take you to an orthopedic surgeon. My friend had his son's surgery done in Virginia...I forget where but is a major center for the procedure. I can check and find out the place and doctor if you are interested.
