Hi kopi and welcome to ehealth: I would suggest you google the item that you are looking for and then seek out a store in your area...However, I would think twice before you use something that your Specialist did not approve of...You could always call him and get his opinion on the item....Take care...

Pectus Carinatum
Thank-you Caroline for your response. We asked abouit surgery, but he said it wasn't severe enough, but never offered correcting it with a brace.I think I should seek another opinion?-
Do they use the brace in Canada to help corrct the problem??

Hi again: I am sorry as I am not familiar with what methods that they use in controlling this problem...Seeing I live in the USA, I am not sure about the Canada market...However, I think your thought on seeking "another opinion" has merit...It's best to have two people agreeing along the same line....Good luck and have a wonderful Holiday Season...
