WFNS President Servadei - Neurosurgical Anatomy Committee
Imad N. Kanaan
Professor Franco Servadei has been a great inspiration to most of us on how to lead such a large Federation with great success. He has been a role model with his objective mind and commitment toward disseminating neurosurgical activities around the world, promoting clinical practice in less privileged countries, and tackling global neurosurgical challenges. I was privileged to witness his commitment to several educational activities, courses, and conferences. He spared no time or effort to support many of these events on site. Prof. Franco served in the most difficult time of the corona pandemic and was able to launch and support a plethora of educational webinars and facilitate education to every country on the map. He supported the young neurosurgeons program as well as women in neurosurgery.
He was the first to get beyond authoritative rigidity, with an unbiased prompt response to help, support, and encourage initiatives and promote new fruitful protocols. At a personal level, it was a great pleasure and honor to know Franco as a charismatic friend and great colleague.
