|Bracing is preferred to surgery in many cases|
As a first principle, surgery and a prolonged recovery is to be avoided whenever possible, especially with children. While it may not be possible in every case, the majority of patients present a protrusion that can be treated unobtrusively and in reasonable comfort.
Besides moderate cases, asymmetries and complications have also been treated successfully with the Braceworks Pectus Brace®. Consult your doctor for a diagnosis and discuss alternative treatment, including the Braceworks Pectus Brace®.
|Every situation is unique|
Speak directly with an orthotist about your options. Call 403-240-9100. Thoracic surgeons have treated hundreds of children successfully with our advanced, light weight, user adjustable brace. Patients continue active lives, including sports, while wearing their Braceworks Pectus Brace®.
|Comfort is decisive in a device worn for 23 hours a day|
Comfort is the key because the brace is worn continuously to provide compression during regular daily activity. Each Braceworks Pectus Brace® is custom fitted and unobtrusive. Users report increased comfort with the Braceworks Pectus Brace®. Increased rates of patient adoption and compliance yield consistent treatment and better results.
Visible gains in early adjustment boost patient confidence. According to the Calgary Protocol for bracing of Pectus carinatum, patients wear the Braceworks Pectus Brace® diligently, compressing the point of the most prominent sternal protrusion. Dynamic pressure stimulates bone and cartilage remodelling.
