The University of Ottawa Heart Institute (UOHI) is proud to announce the appointment of Dr. Stéphane Lambert as the new Head of its Cardiac Anesthesiology Division. Appointed for a 5-year mandate, Dr. Lambert will succeed Dr. Jean-Yves Dupuis.

A member of the Heart Institute’s Division of Cardiac Anesthesiology since 2005, Dr. Lambert obtained his MD in 1990 from McGill University in Montreal. Following a residency in family medicine, he completed a residency in anesthesia at the University of Toronto.

A Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, Dr. Lambert did a clinical and research fellowship in perioperative transesophageal echocardiography at the University of California in San Francisco, after which he returned to the University of Toronto and worked at St. Michael’s Hospital for seven years in clinical anesthesia and critical care.

“As our new Division Head of Cardiac Anesthesiology, Dr. Lambert’s outstanding expertise will continue to be a great source of inspiration to our entire team as his leadership will transcend his new responsibilities and directly impact our patients, and their families,” said Dr. Thierry Mesana, President and CEO of the Heart Institute. “I also want to thank Dr. Jean-Yves Dupuis for the positive influence he has had at the Institute over the years. His unwavering dedication and work ethic will undoubtedly be remembered by his colleagues.”

“The Division of Cardiac Anesthesiology has always played an integral part in the successes of the Heart Institute and, as we enter this important phase in our Institute’s history, we look forward to continuing this tradition of excellence in clinical care, education and research,” said Dr. Lambert.

Cardiac Anesthesiology at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute is a multi-faceted division dedicated to perioperative cardiovascular care, education and research. Established under the early leadership of North American cardiac anesthesia pioneer Dr. J. Earl Wynands, Cardiac Anesthesiology has established a model that is unique in Canada. Almost 2000 cardiac procedures per year require anesthesia support.
