The Center for Pediatric Pectus and Chest Wall Anomalies at Children’s Health℠ delivers comprehensive care to diagnose, evaluate and treat chest wall anomalies in infants, children, and teens.
Chest Wall Pain
Complex Chest Wall Anomalies
The Center for Pectus and Chest Wall Anomalies is one of the few in the United States with a dedicated team that has been trained to complete the customized measurements of the chest, supply the brace and provide follow up.
The Dynamic Compression Brace is designed with front compression plates anchored to bars that encircle the chest, and is custom-fabricated based upon measurements of your child’s chest. It is worn over a thin shirt, and hidden under regular clothing.
We suspect that chest wall abnormalities are caused by abnormal growth of the cartilage between the ribs and the sternum. The chest wall deformities treated at our center can have an impact on the heart and lungs physiology and anatomy and on self-esteem. We have active projects to understand how reconstructive services help to reduce the effects of the chest wall.
