The cost for the SIMPLE Pectus surgery for pectus excavatum can vary from $15,000 to $25,000. This is considerably less than the cost of Nuss and Ravitch procedures since no hospital stay is needed. The costs vary for individuals, depending on implant size, length of surgery, your choice of placement under or over the pectoral muscles, and other patient-related individualized factors.
Some patients choose fat grafting, in order to enhance the results in the upper part of the chest where implants cannot be placed. This lengthens the surgery and involves additional costs. Pectus excavatum repair cost details are as follows:
