I can't even begin to explain how grateful I am for my surgery. I went most of my life without pectus excavatum and then one year it just started getting noticeably worse. I became self conscious of it and preferred to wear a shirt at all times to avoid questions. My family found my amazing surgeon when we were watching a show that he had been a guest on, to help with a nuss procedure. After watching the show we looked him up and made an appointment. The way he explained how the whole procedure and healing process would go made me so happy because after just a few months I could have a completely normal chest and be able walk freely and proudly without a shirt. After going through the surgery and completely healing I can say it was well worth it. There is no better surgeon than Dr. LoSasso for a nuss procedure and if you have pectus excavatum I highly suggest you pay him a visit. -Michael Liparoto (15 years old)

Dr Barry is one of the best surgeon not only in the US but the world. My husband had one of the most complicated pectus excavatum case and Dr Barry was the only true expert in the field that we can trust to perform the surgery.He did my husband nuss surgery 3 years ago and his chest look wonderful. And just today he removed the bars in an easy and smooth surgery.He's a true gem, very confident and professional.Thank you Dr for an amazing experience and keep making a difference in this world!

I cannot recommend Dr. Losasso enough. He is incredibly competent - a true expert in his field, and he is also warm, caring, and has wonderful bedside manner. He takes the time to explain everything and we never felt rushed. He inserted my daughter's bar in San Diego and removed it in New Jersey. Both experiences were smooth and all the nurses and assistants we worked with in both locations were friendly and excellent too. I was able to get our insurance to cover the cost as in-network as well.

Wonderful man and doctor. Took his time to answer my laundry list of questions and explain my 3week old baby's condition and care. Great at giving patient comfort in difficult circumstances and clearly compassionate towards his Patient's needs. I couldn't ask for a better surgeon to operate on my child.

Dr. LoSasso is an amazing surgeon, probably the best Nuss surgeon in North America. I had originally received the Nuss Procedure from an inexperienced surgeon who had no clue what he was doing and completely botched my Nuss Procedure. It was so bad that I had to get it done again by Dr. LoSasso who fixed me and did an amazing job on my surgery. My chest is now beautifully flat and I can finally breathe! I feel like a weight has been lifted off of my chest and am a new person. Thanks Dr. LoSasso!

Dr. LoSasso is a kind and caring physician with years of experience. I am a 50 year-old patient with severe pectus excavatum (Haller index of 7.6). I chose The West Coast Center of Excellence because Dr. LoSasso has performed nearly 700 PE surgeries. I had two titanium bars installed and am three weeks post-op with virtually zero pain. In fact, Bending the bars is an art form and I credit the low pain to Dr. LoSasso's work ethic and skill set. I recommend him without hesitation.
