On Saturday, December 30, 2017, a rich content life was completed. The big heart of a husband, a parent and a grandfather, a renowned professor of surgery and a teacher of numerous generations of surgeons, a head of surgery and a military academy, a JNA general, a gentleman and a great man, has ceased to be. Professor Djuknić died, as many generations of surgeons in Serbia and the former Yugoslavia know him.

Prof. Dr. Mihailo Djuknić, Major General of the JNA, was born on January 14, 1927, in Belgrade. He comes from the big Djuknic family from Belanovica, a place where he often spent his days in pension, in the circle of many friends and family. He finished elementary school and gymnasium in Belgrade and then the Medical Faculty of the Belgrade University in 1951 with an average grade of 92.

Upon completion of his internship and the Medical Officers’ School, he was appointed Chief of Staff of the Guards Regiment in Sarajevo. During the Arab-Israeli War, he spent six months in Sinai, within the UN contingent, as head of the JNA Sentencing Detachment.

Specializing in General Surgery ended with a great success in 1962 with the Academician Isidora Pape, who will later succeed in the post of head of the famous MMA Clinic for Surgical Diseases. He defended his doctoral thesis entitled “Associated Chemical Injury” in 1977 at the Military Medical Academy. He was on training in famous world clinics in the United States, Russia, France, England and Czechoslovakia.

In 1963, she was elected Assistant Professor of Surgery, in the title of Docent – 1965 and in 1969 as a full professor.

After passing the specialist exam, the working life is carried out at the MMA Surgical Diseases Clinic. Upon returning from London in 1965, the first one in our country did a surgery of stenosis of the carotid artery, and among the first he operated the aneurysm of the abdominal aotre. After being educated at the famous American hospital “Valter Reed Army Medical Center” in Washington, he significantly contributed to the advancement of vascular surgery and to the treatment of blood vessel injuries. After training at the Military Medical Center “Kirov’s Names” in Leningrad, JNA military and warty surgery enriched the latest knowledge and experience in the war-surgical doctrine and the wartime wound treatment caused by high initial speed projectiles, as well as the disposal of associated injury.

Head of the Department of Surgical Diseases of the MMA and the main surgeon of the JNA was from 1981-1993. He was promoted to the rank of general-general in 1987, and in 1989 he was appointed head of the Military Medical Academy. He performed the function until 1992.

He is the author of more than 200 scientific and professional papers in general, vascular and war surgery, co-author of several books and monographs, including War Surgery and Flebology, and was an associate in the Medical Encyclopedia. He participated in numerous surgical congresses in the country and abroad. As a visiting professor, he held lectures in the United States, England, and France. In 1988, he was elected Honorary Doctor of Medical Science in the aforementioned MMA named Kirov in Leningrad. He was Editor of the Military Security Review from 1963-1993.

He was a member of the SLD and his Surgical section. On several occasions he was elected to the Management Board of this section and its president in the one-year term of office 1980/81. He was a member of the Association of Surgeons of Yugoslavia and a member of the Presidency of the same association, a member of the International Society of Digestive Surgery and the International Association for Cardiovascular Surgery. He was elected a regular member of the Academy of Medical Sciences of SLD in 1979.

He was awarded the Charter and other awards of the SLD, and in 2016 he was awarded the SLD Lifetime Achievement Award. As the fourth surgeon in the world and the only one in this area, in 1988, he received the prestigious American De Bakey War Surgery Award. He is the holder of the most military awards in the JNA – “December 22″ and a number of military merits.

After retirement in 1994, he was Vice President of the Yugoslav Red Cross and the Red Cross of Serbia.

Until a few months ago, in the late years, from when the disease prevented him, he attended almost all Surgical Sessions in various surgical centers in Serbia. With his presence, discussions, suggestions, criticism, and praise, his style of communication influenced the work and development of the HS and set up a model that would follow the generations of the surgeon.

Let him be eternal glory and thank professor Mihail Djuknic, for he contributed to the development and reputation of surgery in Serbia, and gave good credit to the MMA, surgery in Serbia and all of us.

Assembly of the Serbian Medical Society (SLD) was held on November 3, 2017. the unanimous decision was made to organize the signing of a request to the Government and the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia to include an explicit provision in the Amendments and Amendments to the Law on Return of Property and Compensation to “return nationalized property to associations that were in existence before and after nationalization and which exist today “, which would create the conditions for returning the nationalized property to the Serbian Medical Society, and above all” the Serbian Medical Association’s home. Foundation of Dr. Stevan Milosavljevic, the first Serb medical superintendent “in Kraljice Natalije 1-3 in Belgrade.

We ask all doctors and dentists, employees in state and private health institutions, unemployed doctors and dentists, retired doctors and dentists, regardless of whether or not they are members of the SLD that this application is signed as soon as possible.

The signing can be done in all branches and sections of SLD, and in Belgrade and SLD, at George Washington 19, and in Novi Sad, in the Association of Doctors of Vojvodina SLD in Vase Stajića 9.

Please note that the application can be signed ONLY ONE ROAD, which means that the doctors and dentists signing the application in one of the mentioned places should not sign it in other places, because double signing could endanger the whole action.

Doctors and dentists who for health reasons can not come to branches or sections can phone the branch managers to be visited by someone for signature.

We expect at least 30,000 doctors and dentists to sign this application.

This action is of vital importance to the Serbian Medical Society, which for more than 145 years on its own initiative and at its own expense, without the help of the state, performs and performs tasks of immutable benefits for our medical science, civilian and military care services, for our people and for our country.

At the same time, all the nationalized property, including the aforementioned House, was acquired by the Society solely by the appointment of doctors and medical families without the least assistance of the state. Therefore, in this action, no doctor and dentist of our country should be absent.
