Mehmed Pasha was the palace surgeon prior to becoming grand vizier, hence his epithet cerrah ("surgeon"). The Istanbul neighborhood of Cerrahpa┼ča and one of the two medical faculties of Istanbul University, Cerrahpa┼ča Medical Faculty (the other being Istanbul Medical Faculty), are named after him.
