My Pectus Journey
I was born with Pectus Excavatum and never really knew what it was for the longest time. I experienced my fair share of ridicule through middle and high school for the shape of my chest and eventually underwent the Nuss procedure as an 18 year old. I had two titanium bars in place under my sternum for over 7 years and have since had them removed.
Chances are if you’ve experienced something pectus related or surgery related, I’ve been there myself. It can be incredibly challenging to be confident in the way you look with pectus excavatum and that is exactly why I’ve devoted so much time and effort to working with individuals just like me.
