Teen’s medical condition requires lesser-known surgery

Like most eighth grade boys, Matthew Thompson, of Smithton, loves spending time at the baseball field or at the basketball court taking part in a game.

However, unlike many boys, Thompson’s playing days will be cut short this summer.

On June 10, Thompson is scheduled to have surgery for Pectus Excavatum, a condition that typically occurs in young men and causes the individual’s chest to become concave, creating an oblong cavity or depression in the chest.
