When & Where
Center for Thoracic Insufficiency Syndrome at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
The Center for Thoracic Insufficiency Syndrome at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is the first national multidisciplinary program devoted solely to the treatment and research of thoracic insufficiency syndrome. Established in 2009, the Center's expert team has evaluated more than 300 children with life-threatening thoracic insufficiency syndrome. The key to treatment for most of these children is the vertical expandable prostetic titanium rib (VEPTR), a innovative device invented and developed by Center Director Robert M. Campbell, Jr., MD.
