In the whole world, everyone accepts that old age makes weak everyone. Most of the old people just lie in bed and rest the whole day, but here we have got a surgeon who is 89 years old but still does four surgeries every day. This surgeon is in Moscow, Russia and is the world’s oldest Surgeon. Her name is Alla Illyinichna Levushkina, a surgeon at Ryazan City Hospital in Moscow. Though Alla is 89 years old, she operates and performs surgeries. Now, this is something new and interesting!
Alla has done more than 10,000 surgeries and has no record of any disease causing death. She is not married and lives in a flat with her disabled nephew and her eight cats. From 1950 she is doing surgeries, and that is 67 years of experience. Alla starts her work sharp 8 o’clock in the morning.
Levushkina said to Metro,”I work and everything. I have nothing to do in retirement. Doctor – it is not just a profession, it’s a way of life. Why else would the surgeon live, if not to work?”
Most of the Russians gets to retire in 50-60 age, but Alla has become the world’s oldest surgeon. She said‘I didn’t find any secret to longevity. I just eat everything, laugh a lot and cry a lot.’ ‘I work because it’s interesting to me, and also because I like to win. I like to help people achieve remissions. ‘There are people I saved many years ago when nobody else wanted to perform an operation on them. And I did that, and they are still alive and have grown up children.’
Hats Off To You. A Hero And An Inspiration To Everyone!
