About James K. Brevig

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 maximize 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.
