Outcomes are Important
One of the most important measures of the quality of medical care is represented in the actual outcomes. Providing our patients with the latest surgical techniques and technology is part of our sphere of care, including minimally invasive surgery, off-pump bypass, robotic surgery, and laser heart surgery.
Off-pump surgery, also called beating-heart surgery, allows the patient to have heart bypass surgery without stopping the function of the heart and lungs. Instead, the bypass is done with the assistance of high-tech stabilizing devices which allow the heart to continue beating while bypasses are created.
One of the most frequent operations performed in cardiology is heart bypass surgery. For the past 22 years, the mortality rate for bypass surgery, or “CABG”, performed by Santa Rosa cardiologist Dr. Deeik has been consistently well below the national average reported by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons and the State of California.
Dr. Deeik performs over 95% of bypass procedures off-pump, whereas only 20% of CABG procedures in the USA are performed off-pump on average. Every year, these outstanding surgical outcomes are made available to the public.
As a Sonoma County heart surgeon, Dr. Deeik is dedicated to providing quality procedures and extending the lives of his patients in Northern California’s Bay Area. He does this through clinical experience and expertise, the most current technology and techniques, and compassionate care for each and every patient.
