Sydney Haje, M.D., orthopaedist from Brasilia, DF, Brazil, explains his conservative method, also called the Dynamic Remodeling (DR) method, for treatment of pectus deformities (anterior chest wall deformities).
The results shown in the interview do not mean that the same results will happen to all patients with similar deformities. The examples shown are of patients who followed properly the medical instructions during treatment and demonstrate that bone and cartilage remodeling of the anterior chest wall – a malleable region – can occur, avoiding surgery.
Medical assistance for treatment progress and to prevent complications, plus patient’s will power in a long term period (one or more years), are seen as essential for a successful treatment. More information can be seen in http://www.orthopectus.net
