If you think that old age is an excuse to lie down in your bed the whole day, then you’ve never met Alla Illyinichna Levushkina. A renowned surgeon from Moscow, at the age of 89, she still performs 4 surgeries per day! Now that’s something!
Till date, Alla has a track record of zero fatalities and has carried out more than 10,000 surgeries. Her secret for her longevity is quite simple. ‘I didn’t find any secret to longevity. I just eat everything, laugh a lot and cry a lot.’
Today she lives with her nephew and has eight cats. She is happily single and starts her work at 8 am sharp!
“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?”, she told Metro.
