Max Yeslev, MD
I speak: English, Ukrainian
My gender: Male
Where I practice
I was born in Ukraine, in a family of physicians, and since my early years, I was determined to become a doctor. While studying in medical school, I realized that in our age of highly sophisticated modern medicine, physicians need to have a deep understanding of advanced medical research. Therefore, for several years after medical school, I studied molecular oncology in Germany at Munich University's Department of Surgery. I later worked as a research fellow in the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University, where I was part of a research team that pioneered several methods of more efficient diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. I stayed at Emory University to complete my general surgery residency. Following five years of general surgery training, I spent three years studying plastic and reconstructive surgery at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, where the world's leading surgeons shared with me the latest techniques in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. Now I am proud to work for Kaiser Permanente, having joined an excellent team of physicians providing high-quality surgical care.
About my practice
I perform both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery of the entire body, primarily focusing on breast reconstructive and cosmetic procedures. I care deeply about every member who entrusts me with their health. I believe each person deserves the benefits of excellent clinical care as well as strong emotional support. I deliver both. In my practice, I use the latest surgical techniques and materials to ensure that our members benefit from the best reconstructive and cosmetic treatment options. I also spend time with my patients to collaboratively develop and agree on a plan for accomplishing the results they want.
How I thrive
My wife and daughter have been a source of continuous inspiration for me. Since my daughter was born, issues of women's health and emotional well-being have become even more personal to me. I am so glad that many years ago I chose to dedicate my medical career to helping women heal and flourish. I love my job and my family, cooking and fishing on weekends, and the beauty and friendliness of the South. Watching Georgia sunsets, while my daughter plays next to me, is my idea of a perfect ending to a long work day.
