Dietitian Support: Nourishing Your Journey to Pectus Correction

Welcome to Our Dietitian Support Program

According to the information in classical medicine books, abnormal blood values in vitamin D, zinc, magnesium or calcium levels are associated with pectus deformities. In addition, chest deformities can reduce the volume of the rib cage and put pressure on the esophagus and the upper part of the stomach. As a result of this, problems such as excessive reflux, gastritis, early hunger and early satiety, less eating and weakness occur. If you pay attention, you will see that most of the pectus deformity patients around you are also weak.

In order to achieve this balance, dietitian support is very important in patients with pectus. In addition, while undertaking to be a "Hercules", among the responsibilities we expect from the patient, besides doing sports with a physiotherapist, there is also proper nutrition that will enlarge the muscles so that he can see the result of this sport.


We are able to achieve great results by providing expert dietitian support that will provide you with all these.

At Dr. Pectus, we understand the vital role that nutrition plays in your overall health and well-being, especially during your journey towards pectus correction. Our Dietitian Support Program is designed to provide you with expert guidance and personalized nutritional advice to optimize your surgical outcomes and support your overall recovery.

The Importance of Nutrition in Pectus Correction

Proper nutrition is crucial for individuals undergoing pectus correction surgery or non-surgical treatment. It plays a significant role in:

Enhancing Healing

Optimal nutrition supports tissue repair, wound healing, and reduces the risk of infection, promoting a faster and smoother recovery after the procedure.

Supporting Bone Health

Adequate nutrition, including essential vitamins and minerals, is essential for maintaining bone health and supporting the formation of new bone tissue.

Boosting Immune Function

A well-balanced diet provides the necessary nutrients to strengthen the immune system, reducing the likelihood of post-operative complications.

Proper nutrition contributes to increased energy levels, improved mood, and enhanced overall well-being, which can positively impact your recovery experience.
