Hello! My name is Dr. Fayyaz Hashmi and I am a heart surgeon having graduated from King Edward Medical College in 1974. To date, I have performed approximately 10,000 cardiac surgical procedures, of which 3,000 involved heart valve operations. I perform surgery at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, Mercy St. Anne .
"Dr. Hashmi was going to perform a cow valve replacement of my mitral valve (as I did not want to have a mechanical valve that required Coumadin therapy for the balance of my life). I was 56 when Dr. Hashmi performed the surgery -- which also included a MAZE procedure. Interestingly, Doctor Hashmi was able to repair and "save" all of my original parts, so that no replacement was needed. Besides saving my life, Dr. Hashmi is a wonderful and caring doctor, in and out of the operating room. If need be, I'd have another open heart surgery, with him being the doctor. His caring and compassion are something I have never experienced compared to any other surgeon. I will ALWAYS be gratefully indebted to the good doctor and his surgical abilities. I would recommend him whole-heartedly (pun intended). Thank you Dr. Hashmi!!!"
My cardiac specialties include:
- Minimally invasive aortic valve replacement
- Minimally invasive mitral valve repair/replacement
Relative to heart valve surgery, I have the following clinical interests:
- Clinical Research
"I believe my greatest strength as a heart surgeon is experience over a wide range of procedures, both conventional and minimally invasive, postoperative care, compassion."
