Not just a cosmetic concern but often a medical one, pectus excavatum can be a sign of Marfan. After much debate and many discussions, surgery for this sometimes life-impairing problem has recently been restored to NHS England. Advocates for the return of NHS funding included members of a wonderful new charity, Pectus Matters, alongside Dr Anne Child at the Trust. 

We are proud to introduce Pectus Matters at this lunchtime webinar. Meet a lovely team, chaired by Consultant Cardiothoracic Surgeon Mr Simon Kendall, and hear from both sides of the consulting table, the patient and surgical. Each talk will be followed by an opportunity to ask questions.


  • Introducing the new charity, Pectus Matters featuring  Ellie Musgrave, Becky Blount & Lisa de-Laune followed by Q&A
  • Patient and Parent  Story, featuring Ellie Musgrave and Lisa de Laune followed by Q&A
  • Current Care for Pectus in England featuring Cardiothoracic Surgeon,  Simon Kendall followed by Q&A

Past President of the National Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery, Simon Kendall was a Consultant Cardiothoracic Surgeon in James Cook University Hospital, Teesside. He is  now working for NHS England as a Medical Director in the North West Region. He has a particular interest in surgical treatment for pectus excavatum.
