Pectus Clinic South Africa: Treating Pectus for Those Who Need It


Pectus Excavatum Treatment and Pectus Carinatum Treatment are two things that a fair few people in South Africa (and elsewhere) need. Unfortunately, there are a lot of things that need to be considered before they go ahead with anything. Access, cost, safety, etc., these are all things that go through the heads of anyone seeking medical treatment, and depending on the type of treatment, the sufferer’s anxiety and stress can go through the roof. This is not something that you want to have weighing on your shoulders – even if it would do a world of good for your health and safety, those factors are simply too much to bear for some people. Pectus Clinic South Africa wants to help ease those burdens off of the shoulders of Pectus Excavatum and Pectus Carinatum (the former causing an intrusion of the chest, and the latter a protrusion) sufferers and their friends and family.

Pectus Clinic South Africa has two treatments that can be done to help deal with the person’s issues regarding either Pectus Excavatum or Pectus Carinatum. These include the Nuss Procedure (for Excavatum) and the Abramson Procedure, also known as the “Reverse Nuss” (for Carinatum). These are both non-invasive, and as such have a higher probability of safety for the patient. In the Nuss Procedure, an introducer is inserted into the chest through two small incisions on the side under the sternum (taller patients may get more than one bar) and flipped to pop out the sternum, while the Reverse Nuss Procedure has the introducer put above the ribs but beneath the musculater.

Whichever problem you or a loved one has, it should be treated right away before it gets worse. It’s a lot easier to deal with if you nip it in the bud. To get more information, you can contact the Pectus Clinic South Africa here.
