Pectus Excavatum (funnel chest)

Hi, I've seen some posts regarding PE but would like to know if it can be surgically corrected in South Africa and how safe the operation is. I'm a 22 year old male. I know this is probably not your field of practice but any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.

Jason, it all depends on how sever t is. The best would be to see a thoracic surgeon and get his opinion. Good luck.
