William Hum: Sharing his good fortune

P1060918

The Children’s has been a part of our family for many years.  When I was a kid, I had my tonsils removed at the Children’s and my two sons, now 15 and 13, have depended on the hospital for care over the years – thankfully never for anything that turned out to be too serious!  However, we have had a few scares and, every time we’ve turned to the Children’s, we’ve received nothing but extremely great care. It occurred to us, on a recent trip to the ER, that the quality of care we benefit from is in part, largely …

In this edition of Doc Talk, we meet Dr. Luc Jutras, who has worked as a cardiologist at the Children’s since 1988. He is the assistant head of the Pediatric Cardiology Division, director of the Echocardiography Laboratory and director of the Magnetic Resonance Program.

In honour of World Humanitarian Day, we would like to highlight the visit of Dr. Tuyisenge, head of pediatrics at the Kigali University Teaching Hospital. While she was here, our two institutions signed a memorandum of agreement aimed at improving knowledge sharing. Dr. Tuyisenge visited a number of the Children’s departments, including nephrology, hematology-oncology and the Telehealth Centre, and met with department heads who explained their respective tasks as well as the hospital’s organizational structure. When Dr. Tuyisenge returns home full of new ideas, knowledge and experience that she gained within the walls of the Children’s, she hopes to be …

Doc Talk: Dr. Guillaume Sébire

DSC_1466retouch

In this installment of Doc Talk, we introduce you to MCH Pediatric Neurologist Dr. Guillaume Sébire, a clinician-scientist and director of Neurology in the McGill Pediatrics Department. Doctor Sébire’s research focuses on the causes of severe handicaps such as cerebral palsy and of learning disabilities and behavioral disorders such as autism.  What brought you into medicine and into this field of specialization? In the 1980’s, there was still a lot of mystery surrounding brain disease in children – there still is some, but thankfully it has thinned-out a bit – and I was drawn by these mysteries around child disease.  The …
