Alla chose to specialise in proctology, a field of medicine that deals with bowel and rectal problems. She said at one time you could count all the proctologists in Russia on one hand as no one wanted to handle that part of the body because it was too messy.

When asked about her unending energy and enthusiasm she said,

“I didn’t find any secret to longevity.” “I just eat everything, laugh a lot and cry a lot.”
