Yes!!!! “Age Is Just The Number”.
Where people call her an old lady ,on the other hand she proved that if you are determined towards your work age doesn’t matter.
Here we are talking about a lady who is a surgeon and she is 89 years old and still have the capability to perform 4 surgeries a day. Isn’t this amazing?
She is Alla Illyinichna Levushkina, a surgeon at Ryazan City Hospital in Moscow, Russia who is at the age of 89 and still performs surgeries.
She starts her day at 8:00 a.m. and she has the experience of 67 years in which she has done more than about 10,000 surgeries.
According to Alla ,she is really proud of her record of being the world’s oldest surgeon that too with zero fatalities.
She is unmarried and she lives in a flat and is a carer of her disabled nephew and also she has 8 cats with her.
She said: ‘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?’
Further she added: ‘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.’
She is really a role model.Her keen dedication and her way of living happily has made her such a successful person.It was her childhood dream.
Hats off to you ma’am.
