Yelena Akelina, DVM, MS is a Research Scientist and a Director/Instructor in Clinical Microsurgery at the Microsurgery Research and Training lab at the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Columbia University.

She has been teaching microvascular surgery to different medical professionals from all over the US and abroad since 1996.

Dr. Akelina completed her Doctrine of Veterinary Medicine from Moscow Veterinary Academy in 1987 and obtained her Master Science in Toxicology in 1991.

Dr. Akelina is one of the founders of IMSS (International Microsurgery Simulation Society) and an active member of many other domestic and international societies for microsurgery such as WSRM (World Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery), ASRM (American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery), RAMSES (Robotic Assisted Microsurgical and Endoscopic Society), and ISEM (International Society for Experimental Microsurgery).

The program she runs at Columbia University trains microsurgery to more than 200 surgeons and researchers a year from many institutions from all over the US and more than from 60 countries.

The main goal of the training program she directs is to teach surgeons to operate on very small vessels (1mm diameter) and nerves using microscopes so they can perform similar surgeries on people and save lives.


As an Executive Coach, I help my clients achieve behavior change for improved cognitive performance and increased neurological resilience.

After completing Ph.D.’s in Psychology and Applied Professional Studies, I’m a faculty professor in neuroscience with universities in Switzerland and the UK.

As a Leadership Coach, and psychologist, speaker, and author, I research the neuro-psychology of what improves performance and well-being.

Clients enjoy working with me because I:

- Guarantee results as a Career Coach

- I have over 20 years of exp.

- Ensure my work is based on research

- I’ve rebooted my own brain (check out my book BRAIN REBOOT – A Change of Mind Will Change Your Brain)
