I was born and raised in Ekaterinburg, Russia. I could only dream of getting a glimpse of the American skyscrapers one day. I went to school 6 days a week, excelled in algebra and learned to speak English, spent endless hours practicing on a piano and learning how to paint. One day it all changed. I was granted an opportunity to come to Chicago to study in high school for a year at age 15. Life has been much different since then. With personal determination and my mother’s tireless support, I graduated from high school mastering conversational English, earned my Bachelor’s degree in Biology and Business Management from Concordia University, completed my medical education at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science and my training in General Surgery at the Metro Group Hospitals in Chicago. My professional interest in Surgical Critical Care lead me to pursue a fellowship in Trauma and Critical Care at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. I am honored to start my practice as a general surgeon with Precision Surgical Group, an association of experienced, devoted, and passionate surgeons, united in their goal of providing the highest quality of service to the community of the north side of Chicago.
