Pectus Toolkit

By Mayo Clinic Chest Surgery Team, @mayoclinicchestsurgeryteam

Pectus ExcavatumAdult pectus excavatum evaluation and repair can be a time of both excitement and fear. Our team has developed a Pectus Toolkit to help guide patients along their pectus journey. The goal of the toolkit is to reduce anxiety, answer questions, and provide ongoing up-to-date resources in a patient friendly manner. So regardless of being seen and evaluated in Arizona, Florida, or Minnesota we hope you have the tools you need to have the best possible outcome.
