Pectacular! Chest Wall Reconstruction

Founded by Dr. Lisa Smith, the USA Pectacular! Chest Wall Reconstruction Program helps chest wall reconstruction patients through the process of pre-hab, surgery, and follow-up care. 

Offered by University Surgical Associates and Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, Pectacular! is a multidisciplinary program designed to address the needs of children and their families who were born with pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum. Because the decision to seek treatment is complex and involves the whole family, the program was developed to address those very specific needs, provide support, and connect patients with others who have walked the road they are considering.

Our friends in PT, Brooke and Amanda, have put together this video to demonstrate proper movement and patient transfers following surgery. It's important that both patients and parents/caregivers watch and practice these transfers BEFORE surgery.
