Accepting New Patients
Yes, this doctor is accepting new patients
Dr. Pierre Courchesne successfully finished his studies at the University of Laval in Quebec City. He was so happy and proud (and in debt). Luckily, there were many opportunities as the demand for doctors at the time was high. Pierre began internships back in his hometown of Nicolet for three years before going to the then new Gatineau hospital where he worked for 8 months. He then practiced at Pierre Boucher Hospital where he was in charge of the internships and the emergency room for new doctors coming from the University of Montreal and University of Sherbrook. He was also chosen to be part of the medical team when the pope Jean-Paul II visited Canada. During all these years he kept assisting local and international conferences on a variety of medical issues concerning the latest technologies and procedures in medicine. He was also the medical director for the pilot project of Helicopter ambulance Max-Vie until 1990. Many times during this period he looked after the medical services for V.I.P. visitors to Canada. Among the visitors were Prince Charles, The president of Israel and the honorable Canadian governor Jean Sauvé as well as Queen Elizabeth II. At the beginning of the 90’s, Dr. Pierre Courchesne worked in the United States where he had the chance to work at the renowned Cleveland Clinic. Returning to Montreal in 1992, he opened his own practice for general medicine and associated himself with Dr. Prescott at the surgery clinic Centre Ville. Dr. Prescott was one of the top cosmetic surgeons in Montreal. At the same time, Pierre received a fellowship from the American College of International Physicians and received his diploma for Phlebology, where his passion and talent for injectables began. Pierre learned from the best for liposuction and hair transplants, as well as all the cosmetic procedures known at the time. He developed a particular talent for stitching and he is proud of the invisible scars that remain when he needs to remove cysts, lipomas or other growths in the skin. Not only was Pierre developing and perfecting new skills, he was also traveling extensively to assist with conferences on aesthetics, where he received hands on experience from the best surgeons in the United States, Brazil and Europe. After getting all his specializations, Pierre finally decided to open his own private cosmetic surgery clinic with an operating room, Le Centre de Médecine et Chirurgie Esthétiqu. Now, with two locations in Longueuil and Granby, Pierre and his team have helped over 40,000 patients achieve their aesthetic goals with innovative techniques. The adventure of a life time continues.
