Cleveland Clinic Children’s is one of few hospitals nationally that treats both pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum. We are also designated as Center of Excellence due to our high volumes and exceptional outcomes for pectus excavatum surgery.

Pectus excavatum is an abnormal development of the rib cage where the breastbone grows inward, resulting in a sunken chest wall. Commonly known as “sunken chest” or “funnel chest.”

In contrast, pectus carinatum is a condition in which the breastbone protrudes more than usual. The condition is sometimes called “pigeon chest.”
