They say that when someone dies on earth, a star falls from the sky … On June 29, the star of a wonderful man, a respected colleague, a wise teacher and friend, Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Savenko fell.

A family man, father, doctor, teacher, lecturer, mentor is a person who devoted his whole life to conscientious work and the struggle for the health of others.

In the position of an orthopedic trauma surgeon, more than one thousand operations were done within Ukraine and abroad. For 16 years, a fruitful combination of practical and teaching activities at the Department of Traumatology, Orthopedics and Field Surgery of the Luhansk State Medical Institute.
