One of the World's Oldest Surgeon: Alla, is already 87 year old. She still works as a surgeon in the hospital. And still holds more than a hundred operations a year, with zero fatality. In a span of 67 years of work, she has performed about 10,000 surgeries.
The Russian newspaper, Kommersant, has published an interesting set of photos by Ilya Pitalev about the oldest Russian surgeon.
When she was a child, she wanted to be a geologist, but books about doctors inspired her to become a surgeon. So she became one.
Before an operation starts, an assistant brings her a small platform to stand on. And during operation, her hands never shake.
Weekly, Alla begins at 8am with the reception of patients in the clinic. After 11am she goes to the hospital to do surgery. Alla has four operating days per week.
She does not have children, and she has never been married, but she takes care of her eight cats. She took all her animals from the streets, and saved them from death. Birds are always flying to her windows because she feeds them.
She lives in a studio apartment. When Alla is not at work, she is caring for a disabled nephew.
She said once – “I work, and that’s all I want to do. I have nothing to do in retirement home. Being a Doctor – it is not just a profession, it’s a way of life." — if you want to become a surgeon comment below which specialty ? •
