The Newly Expanded and Renovated Nuss Center is Open!


The newly expanded and renovated Nuss Center at CHKD is now open!  Pediatric surgeons at CHKD are the pioneers of the Nuss Procedure and have trained extensively under Dr. Donald Nuss, the originator of the Nuss Procedure, a minimally invasive approach to correcting pectus excavatum.  

In the years since Dr. Donald Nuss developed the groundbreaking, minimally invasive surgery to correct pectus excavatum, CHKD has performed more than 1,800 surgeries to correct the condition, far more than any other center.  Because of the number of patients treated and the data gathered, CHKD has also become a worldwide center for pectus research.
