Medical mission to Kyiv, Ukraine, with guest Dmitriy Nikolavsky, MD, on Upstate's The Informed Patient podcast

Urologists operated on severely injured soldiers

Two Ukrainian-born surgeons from Syracuse recently traveled to Kyiv, Ukraine, to operate on 13 soldiers with severe injuries to the groin area. Dmitriy Nikolavsky, MD, director of reconstructive urology at Upstate, tells about the trip he took with urologic surgeons from Mexico and Poland and his colleague Gennady Bratslavsky, MD, the chief of urology at Upstate. The soldiers' injuries required the expertise of reconstructive urologists. Nikolavsky also tells of a side trip to Bucha and to Syracuse's "sister city," Irpin.
