(YorkPedia Editorial):- New York City, New York Mar 13, 2023 ( – Dr. Brevig is a board-certified and fellowship-trained cardiothoracic surgeon with Providence North Everett Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery in Washington. He can also be found on staff at Providence Regional Medical Center.

His areas of expertise include aortic root and arch surgery, minimally-invasive mitral valve surgery, and bloodless heart surgery.

“I have several goals in my interactions with patients: My first goal is to partner with my patients in decision-making. To achieve this, I need to educate them regarding their treatment options, and I need to get to know them well enough to give them advice relevant to their circumstances. When I finish my initial consultation, all questions should be answered. My next goal is to perform a technically perfect operation in optimal circumstances. This minimizes the risk of complications, and maximizes the chances for an excellent surgical outcome. I use very few blood products in my procedures, and my preference is to use arteries as bypass conduits, because of better long-term outcomes. Lastly, I pay close attention to postoperative care to minimize both complications, and time in the hospital” expressed the doctor. 

His acclaimed career in medicine began after he earned his medical degree from the Columbia University Roy and Diana Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1986. He then went on to perform his residency in surgery at Mount Sinai Morningside in 1991, and his fellowship in thoracic surgery at SUNY Health Science Center in Syracuse in 1993.

With expertise reigning heavily in the world of heart disease, Dr. Brevig is board-certified in thoracic and cardiac surgery by the American Board of Thoracic Surgery (ABTS). The ABTS is an American surgical organization devoted to surgery of the chest.
