Prof. Pilegaard is maybe the best and most experienced there is. I had a first operation in Norway in december '14, by an unexperienced surgeon and got bad results. I then contacted Pilegaard, Who replied quickly. The communication was excellent and just a month after I was in Denmark, ready for the surgery. Both Pilegaard and the rest of the staff were incredible, understanding and did everything they could to make my stay as good as possible. Pilegaard met me before the surgery and we had a good talk. He's really experienced with around 1500 pectus surgeries, so he knew excactly what to do. The results were great, and he was willing to help me get the surgery covered, by writing some reasoning why I needed the second surgery. Nothing bad to say about this surgeon at all, and i would recommend him for everyone with Pectus excavatum - both children and adults. You won't find a better pectus surgeon!
