Pectus Excavatum.jpgIf you are suffering from pectusexcavatum then one of the things you will want to know is how to receive pectusexcavatum treatment. There are a few options out there you should know about.

Laser Incision
One way to go about pectusexcavatum repair is with a laser incision in the chest to remove the damaged cartilage and set the breastbone to a more natural position. The downside with this is that you will need to wear surgical supports for six to twelve months while your body heals from the procedure.

Small Incision
This is the least invasive procedure. With this small incisions are made on the side of the chest and arms to allow for a camera to go in. From there, a metal bar that is curved is placed under the chest to help form it to the appropriate shape. In some cases more than one bar is needed. Usually the bars can be removed after two years when the chest has taken a normal shape.
