Pectus Excavatum Repair
Pectus excavatum is the most common congenital disorder (present at birth) of the anterior chest wall. It is the result of abnormal growth of the cartilages between the ribs and the breastbone (sternum). The abnormal growth causes the sternal bone to move inward and sometimes causes the sternum to rotate to one side or the other. The minimally invasive Nuss repair for pectus excavatum is now being offered through Swedish Thoracic Surgery.
Rib Fracture Clinic (Acute Adult)
Our Adult Acute Rib Fracture Clinic is designed to offer comprehensive evaluation and longitudinal management of the rib-fracture patient. We offer symptom monitoring, strong guidance in aggressive pulmonary hygiene and are committed to managing associated pain.
