About Dr. Barry LoSasso

Dr. Barry LoSasso is a world renowned Pediatric Surgeon and one of the leading practitioners of the Nuss Procedure for Pectus.

The Center of Excellence for Pectus, established in 2005, is the premier center for the Nuss Procedure to treat Pectus Excavatum and evaluate all forms of Pectus. With over 1,200 successful Nuss Procedures completed, Dr. LoSasso has been treating Pectus Excavatum and Pectus Carinatum for teens and adults since 1999. He trained with Dr. Donald Nuss, the founder of the Nuss Procedure. The Center of Excellence for Pectus is also one of the only centers to perform chest wall reconstruction on children and adults.
Pectus excavatum occurs in approximately 1 out of every 300 to 400 births, making it one of the most common chest wall deformities. Males are three times more likely to have the condition than females.
"Because our son's chest was sunken in, his lungs and heart were compro­mised. If he did not have the surgery, these issues would have escalated with age," explained father David Goldsholl. "It was very important to us that we chose a surgeon with extensive experience in correcting this problem, so we spent weeks researching doctors in our region. This is not a surgery you take chances on with inexperience. We are so happy that we chose to have our son treated by Dr. LoSasso and The Valley Hospital." 
Barry LoSasso, M.D., a board-certified pediatric surgeon based in Paramus, is committed to providing excellent outcomes to his patients - both physically and aesthetically. "I have devoted much of my practice to the research and performance of the minimally-invasive Nuss procedure for the correction of pectus excavatum. I was fortunate to be able to train with the world-renowned Dr. Donald Nuss, who created the procedure, and to use my training to develop a successful Center of Excellence for Pectus Deformities. Throughout my career, I have performed more than 1,000 of these procedures."

The Goldsholls were impressed with the entire experience from the moment they stepped into Dr. LoSasso·s office through their son·s recovery. "We truly had an amazing experience with the expertise of Dr. LoSasso and the staff at Valley," said mother Diane Goldsholl. "Our son is doing very well and we are so grateful for the care he received. Our experience was truly a great success and our trust in Dr. LoSasso and the hospital will always be remembered."

The Center of Excellence for Pectus is the premier center for the Nuss Procedure to treat Pectus Excavatum and Carinatum. With over 1000+ successful pectus excavatum surgeries completed and counting, Dr. LoSasso treats Pectus for teens, both males, and females, and is one of the only centers to also treat Pectus in adults.
