Dr. Paul Dessureault

Dr. Dessureault died on July 4, 2009, at the age of 87 in Laval, Quebec. He graduated from Universite de Montreal in 1949. He had been practising urology at Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital in Montreal since 1954. He has served as Professor, Program Director and President of the Quebec Urological Association. He inspired many young physicians in choosing urology and was instrumental in training dozens of urologists now practising in Canada and abroad. He succeeded in passing on to his younger colleagues his scientific curiosity and his love of the profession. His example and his enthusiasm have launched many brilliant careers in urology. His high standards and his surgical skills are still an inspiration to all. Dr. Dessureault has founded the Paul-Dessureault Fund, whose objectives are to promote quality urology in Quebec and to favour scientific exchanges outside the province, to offer grants to postgraduates training in urology and, finally, to encourage clinical and basic research in urology.
