The Expert Network© celebrates its newest member, Dr. Ara Deukmedjian
Titusville, FL, June 20, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Dr. Ara Deukmedjian, CEO & Founder, Deuk Spine Institute & Surgery Center of Viera, has joined The Expert Network©, an invitation-only service for distinguished professionals. Dr. Deukmedjian, or Dr. Deuk as he's known to his patients, has been chosen as a Distinguished Doctor™ based on peer reviews and ratings, numerous recognitions, and accomplishments achieved throughout his career.
Dr. Deuk outshines others in his field due to his extensive educational background, career longevity, and numerous awards and recognitions. He enrolled in the University of Southern California’s School of Medicine where he graduated first in his class with “Highest Honors” and became the first medical student in the school’s 110-year history to be honored with a teaching position while still studying. After earning his medical degree, he went on to complete his internship and residency under the mentorship of the distinguished Dr. Albert Rhoton at the University of Florida at Shands, one of the top three nationally recognized neurosurgical training programs. He rounded out his training with a fellowship funded by the National Institutes of Health.
With 20 years dedicated to medicine, Dr. Deuk brings a wealth of knowledge to his industry and, in particular, to his area of expertise, neuro-spine surgery with a special focus on the treatment of neck and back pain. When asked why he decided to pursue a career in this specialty, Dr. Deuk said:
"Growing up, I had the benefit of going to my father’s office and seeing patients being treated. Seeing how the interaction between the doctor and patient can truly help people was a turn-on for me. I knew that's what I wanted to do with my life—to help people get out of suffering and pain. That’s why I ended up going into spinal surgery, because we’re able to cure some of the most painful neck and back issues."
Dr. Deuk is the CEO and Founder of Deuk Spine Institute, which was recently selected as the first Spine Center of Excellence in the world by Johnson & Johnson. Today, he is perhaps most renowned for his work in minimally invasive laser and endoscopic back and neck pain treatment where patients can go home the same day. After recognizing a need for improvement in neurosurgical procedures, he developed a technique called the Deuk Laser Disc Repair, a modern alternative to spinal fusion surgery and outdated laser surgery. The revolutionary procedure is performed by using an endoscope to gently separate the muscle and ligaments before carrying out disc repair with a very precise laser, eliminating the need to cut bone.
As a thought-leader in his specialty, Dr. Deuk maintains a unique vantage point from which to keep his finger on the pulse of prevailing trends within neuro-spine surgery. In particular, he has noticed a big shift from performing spine surgery at hospitals to performing them at surgery center such as his own. He noted:
"By doing the surgeries outpatient instead of sending patients to a hospital, we’re seeing lower infection and complication rates. As a matter of fact, in the three years that we’ve been doing outpatient spine surgery here at Surgery Center of Viera, we’ve had zero infections or complications. There are very few doctors that can claim that kind of success rate."
