About Dr. Ibrahim Sultan,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Ibrahim Sultan and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from Cornell University in 2008. To date, I have performed approximately 1,500 cardiac surgeries, of which 600 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC).

I believe my greatest strength is that I leverage the latest available technology and patient care data to help patients achieve the best possible outcomes with heart surgery. As a surgeon who routinely performs both open and transcatheter heart valve procedures, I believe I have a distinct ability to recommend the best possible therapy for my patients while keeping their best interest at heart.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Sultan for said procedure. Both he and Dr. Schindler worked very well as a team. I had a valve placed within a valve. I am 78 years old and I am not limited as to any activities. As recommended by Dr. Sultan, I have attended cardiac rehab for the past 5 months and continue a rehab workout at home.
I am very grateful for the professional care I received from Dr. Sultan, and Dr. Schindler and their team"
