Beacon Pectus Clinic

Beacon Pectus Clinic is a specialised service that provides the most innovative care for children with chest wall deformities. This service is led by Mr Brice Antao, Consultant Paediatric Surgeon who has more than 10 years experience in the management of chest wall deformities in the UK, USA and Ireland. In collaboration with other international experts in this field, he was the first to introduce non-surgical strategies such as pectus bracing and the vacuum bell for the management of chest wall deformities for children in Ireland.

Patients with pectus deformities, often suffer from low quality of life and impaired body image. Here at Beacon Pectus Clinic, we are able to offer non surgical treatment options, psychological support and counselling for such patients to cope with their deformity and improve their self-esteem.
