Dr. Gérard Mohr graduated from the University of Strasbourg, France “Summa cum Laude” in 1962 and received his neurosurgical training at the University of Frankfurt, Germany (1970-73), then at the University of Toronto (Hospital for Sick Children – 1974-75, Toronto General Hospital -1976) and at the University of Montreal (1975-1976). From 1979 until 1991 he was staff neurosurgeon at Nôtre Dame Hospital, University of Montreal. Since 1991 he has been Chief of Neurosurgery, Sir Mortimer B.

Dr. Mohr has specialized in cerebro-vascular microsurgery (aneurysm, AVM’s, carotid endarterectomy, EC-IC bypass) and skull base microsurgery, particularly surgery of the cerebellopontine angle, transsphenoidal pituitary microsurgery and anterior skull base surgery. In his Department, particular emphasis is placed on multidisciplinary collaboration and acoustic neuroma surgery is performed in oto-neurosurgical collaboration allowing for sophisticated intra-operative monitoring of the cochlear nerve function. He has participated as principal local investigator in several international studies such as the NASCET Study (North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial), the ISUIA-Trial (International Study on Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysms) and in the Nimodipine Study on vasospasm following Ruptured Intracranial Aneurysms.
