As an experienced thoracic surgeon performing corrective pectus excavatum surgery routinely I was seeing patients who did not wish to go through such an invasive procedure with its associated period of recovery. Following a visit to Prof Chavoin and the team at AnatomikModeling and detailed training in the non-corrective pectus implant technique I performed my first pectus implant at the beginning of 2017 and have gone on to perform many more procedures using the AnatomikModeling's 3D custom implant and the insertion techniques described by Prof Chavoin. Once the implant is precisely mapped using 3D CT modelling techniques the implant is expertly manufactured by Sebbin who create a high-quality custom-made implant. I have been most impressed by the simplicity of the surgical approach, the excellent custom fitting of the implant and the excellent outcomes. Recovery is so quick with patients returning to work within days of surgery and back to the gym within several weeks of surgery. It has added another dimension to my pectus surgical practice!
