Dr. Vikram J Deka has the following 2 specialties
- Trauma Surgery
Trauma surgeons treat patients who come to emergency rooms and require surgery after any kind of accident. They know how to act quickly, assess the patient’s condition, and decide on a course of action. They work fast to coordinate with other physicians and specialists in the hospital if needed, such as neurosurgeons and radiologists, so they can properly diagnose the injury and stabilize patients.
Common trauma injuries include bleeding, burns, brain or other internal injuries, shock and loss of limbs. Because they treat patients in traumatic situations, they’re also typically skilled in offering some level of emotional support to help the patient cope with confusion and grief that may result from their accident.

Dr Deka is wonderful. When I walked in to his office for the first time I was greeted by his receptionist. She was nice and professional. All his staff is very nice. When the doctor saw me he took time to fully explain to me my condition and explained to me what he was going to do. When my surgery date arrived he was very thorough and had a good beside manner very compassionate. I would definitely recommend this surgeon to anyone.
When I learned my breast biopsy was positive, I cried. I never felt so alone, or so helpless. Of course I was anxious and my head was spinning with questions, but after my first visit with Dr. Deka and his assistant Robby, I felt focused and ready for the battle. Dr. Deka broke it down for me, piece by piece: the nature of my cancer, next steps, my options, etc. He was clear and decisive. Robby readily assured me that I would be able to communicate with them at any time. She helped me understand the various steps, which reduced my anxiety considerably. Chemotherapy would begin soon, and I had a decision to make: was lumpectomy or mastectomy right for me? After some reading, and much thought and prayer, I requested a meeting with Dr. Deka. He answered all my questions (the simple ones, the complex ones, and the ones I thought might be silly). His answers were thorough and thoughtful, and in the end he allowed me to make my own decision. It was a liberating process that made me feel more in control. The mastectomy/reconstruction surgery was seamless. Dr. Deka communicated with my family and friends after the surgery, and answered their questions as well. The outcome of the surgery was excellent. I appreciate the atmosphere of professionalism and yet good humor I experienced in Dr. Dekaâs office. I have nothing but kudos for him and would recommend him without hesitation.
