|| Welcome

To Pectus LIST, an informative website to help you find a doctor / surgeon to help with pectus excavatum / carinatum conditions. updated regularly

REMEMBER : Surgery isn't always the only option , there are many other things you can try first such as exercise, corset style vests, breathing exercises, posture vests, yoga,

I have pectus excavatum, and I found exercise and posture correction to reduce the appearance of my mild pectus excavatum, I have also talked to surgeons in Australia and found them very helpful and supportive and did not push me into surgery at all. Goodluck all your Pectus excavatum and carinatum people :)


 WORLDWIDE - Note: Please email me if you know of a doctor that is not listed:) thankyou
