Examples of work

Ilya Borisovich is a master of his craft, an experienced and highly qualified specialist. I am insanely glad that I got to this particular surgeon!

A year ago, I hardly climbed to the fourth floor, at the end of the day my back just fell off. I had constant shortness of breath, apathy and a feeling of guilt. Now I have already dropped about 50 kg, and I can enjoy life again, walk with children and feel great. Thank you for your work, you are saving people!
