Dr. Mark Dedomenico
Dr. Mark Dedomenico, owner of PRO Club/PRO Medical, began his interest and mastery of viruses in medical school where he studied micro-bacteriology. He became a cardiovascular surgeon and played a key role in developing the procedure known as Coronary Bypass Surgery along with Dr. Lester Sauvage. Working together as two of the initial founders of the Hope Heart Institute, they also created some of the most significant developments in heart surgery. These included the creation of artificial heart valves and Bionit arterial grafts used to replace damaged or atherosclerotic arteries. Dr. Dedomenico’s work has also taken him into the areas of genetics, nutrition, exercise physiology, and behavior modification.
In 1992, Dr. Dedomenico began a new research project devoted to the treatment of early-stage metabolic disease to prevent individuals from later needing cardiovascular surgery or medications to control hypertension, high cholesterol, and diabetes. The research led to the creation of the 20/20 LifeStyles program. In 2002, 20/20 LifeStyles was selected as a credentialed provider of Microsoft’s weight-management program.
Dr. Dedomenico’s research and work with 20/20 LifeStyles remains ongoing and prevalent. He has formulated successful long term treatment methods of obesity, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, diabetes, depression, fibromyalgia, binge eating disorders, arthritis, and immune systems.
In addition to his experience as a practicing surgeon, Dr. Dedomenico applied his knowledge to his family-owned national food manufacturing company to review sanitizing equipment to ensure the factories were free of pathogens like viruses, bacteria, and molds.
