Is there a way to keep an ID attribute for each part in a multipart feature class?

I am working with a feature class with thousands of line features. All of these lines can be grouped together by a common attribute (i.e. Survey Name). This makes it possible to dissolve the feature class, but is there a way to keep the unique line ID for each part in the output multipart feature class?

If I inspect the feature geometry it says Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 etc, for example is it possible to replace this part number attribute with the line ID?

Dissolving the feature class makes it much easier for the user to find the data they need, and I would prefer not to have a separate feature class of single part geometries that needs to be related to the multipart features
