Hello! My name is Dr. Joseph Sabik and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1987. To date, I have performed approximately 6,364(as of November 2011) cardiac surgeries, of which 3,268 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at Cleveland Clinic . Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is my experience and excellent surgical technique. I'm a caring physician and innovative.
"Dr. Sabik leads an expert team that prides itself on successfully repairing valves that others say have to be replaced, and they often use minimally invasive techniques, as they did for me. Soft-spoken, thorough, and kind, Dr. Sabik's limited time with me was unhurried and deeply reassuring. His team offered warm and encouraging support, and I understood that they divide and conquer to keep him in the operating room as much as possible. I feel that my recovery so far is practically miraculous, and I am deeply grateful for the care I received at Cleveland Clinic."

"I'm 67 and it's been about 9 weeks. Can't say enough good stuff about Dr. Sabik, his surgery team and my care at Cleveland Clinic. I saw him 2 or 3 times after surgery and am happy I had the chance to look him in the eyes and say thanks.The best part is I asked him how things went, he gave me 2 thumbs up and said "perfect". "

Cleveland Clinic's motto is "patients first" and each of the dozens of caregivers that assisted me, with only one unfortunate exception, embodied this philosophy. I traveled a very long way to have my surgery at this top not facility, and I am very glad I did. I hope you will consider Dr. Sabik for your surgery -- you will be in the very best of hands."
