Our Programs

Pectus Chest Wall Program

The surgeons of Austin Pediatric Surgery have helped to establish a multidisciplinary pectus excavatum and carinatum program at Dell Children’s Medical Center. We continue to use our evidence-based outcomes and collaborate between the patient and family, surgeons, anesthesiologists, physical and occupational therapists, and nursing staff to strive for the best care of patients with chest wall deformities.

Thyroid Surgery
