Surin Mitruka, M.D.
Dr. Surin Mitruka, a widely respected and renowned cardiothoracic surgeon, recently joined Arch Health Partners, a medical foundation owned by Palomar Health. He will be providing cardiothoracic surgery at the new Palomar Medical Center in Escondido. Before returning to Southern California and joining Arch Health Partners, Dr. Mitruka was the former chief of cardiothoracic surgery at Dominican Hospital in Santa Cruz and Eisenhower Medical Center in Ranch Mirage.
Dr. Mitruka earned his medical degree from Thomas Jefferson University and completed his surgical residency at the University of Pittsburgh, followed by his cardiothoracic surgical fellowship at UCSD.
“One of the reasons I am delighted to be a part of Arch Health Partners and Palomar Health is their vision and commitment to developing a comprehensive multidisciplinary team approach to the treatment of heart and lung disease,” Dr. Mitruka explains. “Arch Health Partners provides this integrative strategy through its diversity of cardiovascular specialists with unique expertise in the community – for example, Dr. Rod Serry in cardiology and vascular intervention, and Dr. Navinder Sawhney in cardiac electrophysiology. This revolutionary approach by a multi-disciplinary group of physicians will offer tremendous benefits to the patients of the North County San Diego region.”
Dr. Mitruka specializes in all aspects of adult cardiac and thoracic surgery, but has particular interest in minimally invasive valve surgery and complex coronary revascularization. Additionally, he has gained national and international recognition in the surgical treatment of atrial fibrillation. He has published and lectured extensively, serves as a consultant for large medical device companies and leads domestic and foreign physician training programs focused on the surgical management of atrial fibrillation.
“Patients confronting significant cardiac ailments requiring treatment are understandably anxious and apprehensive,” says Dr. Mitruka. "A treatment philosophy of courtesy, consistency and compassion goes a long way to engender trust. I believe that education and communication are an essential part of providing the best care for patients.”
Elizabeth Revesz, M.D.
Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women. In fact, one out of every eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. The good news is the survival rate for breast cancer is above 90 percent if it is detected early and treated correctly.
Dr. Elizabeth Revesz leads a team of breast cancer specialists at the Jean McLaughlin Women’s Center for Health and Healing. The team has a mission to eliminate cancer and employ oncoplastic techniques to ensure the best cosmetic outcome. The Women’s Center, located in Poway, is a service of Palomar Health and Arch Health Partners.
Dr. Revesz’s career has been focused on breast cancer treatment. She received a degree in biology at Loyola University in Chicago and in medicine at Rush University Medical College in Chicago. Following five years of surgery residency at Saint Joseph Hospital in Chicago, Dr. Revesz completed her Breast Surgery Fellowship at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, at the Lynn Sage Comprehensive Cancer Center.
“My first priority is to provide the best care for my patients,” she explains. “An important part of that care is empowering patients and their families with the knowledge to make well-informed decisions about all the options available. We provide easy-to-understand worksheets, checklists and other support resources available to breast cancer patients. I encourage communication and share my e-mail address with all my patients.”
Dr. Revesz is well-versed in the latest technologies and breast-saving techniques. “Beside the traditional breast procedures, I perform lumpectomies (breast-conserving therapy), skin- and nipple-sparing mastectomy and sentinel lymph node biopsy,” she says. “Our multidisciplinary team of physicians, genetic counselors, nurse-navigators and a great support staff work together to give each of our patients the highest level of care in the most comforting setting possible.”
