Thanks to years of experience, the Children’s Mercy Center for Pectus is getting children feeling better faster. The center is the oldest in the nation and sees more patients yearly than almost every other hospital. The center offers the “Nuss technique” of minimally invasive surgery with a 99 percent success rate for children with pectus excavatum. For pectus carinatum, the center corrects nearly every patient case without surgery through the dynamic compression device (DCD) bracing system.
Listen in as George ‘Whit’ Holcomb III, MD explains the “Nuss technique” and that Children’s Mercy is the region’s only authorized bracing system provider.
