10 Patient Reviews for
"Dr Deeb put my anxieties at ease prior to surgery. It's been 7 weeks since my operation and I feel completely normal. I've been pain-free for several weeks. I've started cardio-rehab this week and I feel confident that my recovery will continue to improve. I am very satisfied with Dr Deeb and the entire staff at the University of Michigan."

"Dr. Deeb has been great. The Frankel Medical Center at the University of Michigan has been outstanding. I have had nothing but positive interactions with the entire staff. Dr. Deeb was nothing but positive in all our discussions prior to surgery, I indicated because of my work I did not want a mechanical valve replacement with the need for taking blood thinners for ever. He agreed and gave me my other options. As far as results, surgery was on Tuesday at 7:30 with bicuspid valve replacement and ascending aortic aneurysm removed and replaced with a synthetic aorta. I was discharged on Friday at 12:30. "
