About Me

Thoracic Medical Director

Trained as a cardiothoracic surgeon, I worked at the National Cancer Institute of USSR in Moscow. After immigrating to the United States, I continued my training here. I later started and established a reputable cardiothoracic surgery program in Nebraska. I joined CaroMont Heart & Vascular ten years ago as a medical director of thoracic surgery and during my time here, I started a successful minimally invasive, lung cancer surgery program and helped thousands of patients.
