Dr. François Lechanoine was born in Normandy - France, a few steps from the beaches of the famous landing and his grandparents' farm.
It is in this region that he begins his medical studies - inspired by the experiences lived in Africa in various missions in contact with children - completing them in 2012 at the University of Caen (Université de Caen - Basse Normandie).
The choice of specialization in neurosurgery is dictated by his curiosity towards the brain, its functioning and the enigmas that surround it. He graduated from the University of Tours (Université de Tours - Centre) with Profs. Stéphane Velut and Patrick François, in 2018 close to the birth of his son. His specialization thesis concerns the endoscopic treatment of intracranial arachnoid cysts in children.
Very interested in every aspect of neurosurgery, as well as in the different operating techniques practiced in the world, he first attended the Santobono Hospital in Napoli by Professor Giuseppe Cinalli to deepen the pediatric practice and the Federico II Polyclinic of Naples by Profs. Paolo Cappabianca and Luigi Maria Cavallo to learn the endoscopic techniques of the skull base, then the Barrow Neurological Institute of Phoenix (Arizona - United States) by Profs. Robert F. Spetzler and Michael T. Lawton to increase knowledge of vascular neurosurgery.
After a year of research on the microstructure of the brainstem under the supervision of Prof. Christophe Destrieux, at the iBrain Lab of INSERM (Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale) in Tours - in collaboration with the CEA (Comité à l'Energie Atomique) in Paris - receives 2 Awards from the Académie Nationale de Chirurgie (French National Academy of Surgery): the "Prix du Chirurgien de l'Avenir" award and the "Prix d'Innovation Pédagogique" award for the design of an 'app "Atlas of the microstructure of the brainstem".
In 2018, he moved to Grenoble by Professor Emmanuel Gay to devote himself to pediatric, vascular, skull base surgery and neurotraumatology, where he remained for two years.
Since 2012 he has attended numerous training courses, workshops and international congresses, obtaining various French university degrees (in microsurgery, vascular neurosurgery, spine surgery and neuroscience) and in 2019 obtaining the Diploma of the European Association of Neurosurgery Societies (EANS) and the European Diploma of Spine Surgery (Eurospine).
He has taught at the University in master's and anatomy courses, published numerous scientific articles in international medical journals, wrote the chapter of a book, held various speeches at national and international conferences and, since 2018, is a tutor and member of the Faculty at the annual workshop. of neuroendoscopy of Naples by Prof. Cinalli.
He started a surgical collaboration, mainly in the pediatric field, with Dr. Mamadou Dianka at the General Peltier Hospital in Gibuti (Africa), where he went in 2019, together with a team composed of Dr. Ahmad Ashraf, neurosurgeon, from
Dr. Gilles Francony, anesthetist-resuscitator and Dr. Farhad Aghai, maxillofacial surgeon.
From February 1st, 2021, he moved to Italy for family reasons, and signed a collaboration contract, as senior consultant neurosurgeon, with the Maria Cecilia Hospital in Cotignola (RA) (GVM Care & Research), Private Hospital of High Specialization and affiliated with the National Healthcare System, where he still practices the medical profession.
Before his arrival in Italy, he performed more than 2200 cranial, spinal and pediatric surgical procedures in France, at university hospitals, of which 1344 as first operator.
The areas of particular interest of Dr. Lechanoine, both at the surgical, medical, research and university teaching level, are the brainstem, intraventricular neuroendoscopy (hydrocephalus, tumors, etc.) and transphenoidal (pituitary adenomas), vascular surgery and neurovascular conflicts, intracerebral and skull base tumors, pediatric neurosurgery and spine surgery.
