The Department of Cardiac Surgery at CPEIC Multan is one of the leading centres of cardiac surgery in Pakistan. The department started working in 2007 when 34 open heart surgeries were done. Two great cardiac surgeons Prof. Dr. Haider Zaman and Prof. Dr. Anjum Jalal were the pioneers, who by the help of their surgical and administrative skills, took this unit to such heights that now over 1800 open heart surgeries are being done annually. This is the maximum number of operations being done in any other centre of Pakistan. To date, more than 12000 patients have been benefited by these services. Moreover, the results of Cardiac Surgery are comparable with the international standards according to our database. Not only the routine procedures are being performed here but the centre is well known for aortic surgery e.g. aortic root replacement, beating heart surgery and various complex procedures. Moreover, all sorts of complex pediatric heart surgical procedures are also being performed with excellent results.
Not only the department is providing international standard services to the patients but it has the honour of producing many qualified and trained new cardiac surgeons as well.
