Lambert, A. Stéphane

Overview 

Dr. Stéphane Lambert is Division Head of Cardiac Anesthesiology and Associate Professor at the University of Ottawa.

Background 

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, and he has been a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (FRCPC) since 1997. He did a clinical and research fellowship in Cardiac Anesthesia and Perioperative Echocardiography at the University of California, San Francisco, on a scholarship from the Samuel McLaughlin Foundation.

He returned to the University of Toronto as Assistant Professor and worked at St. Michael’s Hospital for seven years, doing clinical anesthesia and critical care. During that time, as Co-Director of Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography, Dr. Lambert helped establish a Perioperative Echo Service and a Cardiac Anesthesia Fellowship Program.

He joined the Heart Institute in 2005 as Assistant Professor of Anesthesia. He is involved in the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists, he has contributed chapters in several Transesophageal Echocardiography textbooks and he is a regular reviewer with anesthesiology journals.

Recently, he successfully completed the Executive MBA program at the Queen’s University School of Business.

Research & Clinical Interests 

Dr. Lambert’s clinical and research interests include perioperative transesophageal echocardiography, specifically the 2-D and 3-D evaluation of the mitral valve.
