The opening ceremony of the memorial plaques was attended by the deputy head of the academy for educational and scientific work, Major General of the Medical Service B.N. Kotiv and the deputy head of the academy for military-political work, Colonel of the Medical Service V.V. Lyutov.

Numerous guests-students of Professor Bisenkov, colleagues, relatives and friends were invited to the solemn event, among whom was the son of Nikolai Platonovich Leonid Nikolaevich Bisenkov, who for a long time headed the department of hospital surgery of the Academy and brought up a whole generation of excellent doctors.

Speaking at the opening of the memorial plaque, the head of the Department of Operative Surgery, Professor Nikolai Fedorovich Fomin noted that N.P. Bisenkov was distinguished by extraordinary personal qualities – a sharp and lively mind, dedication and perseverance in achieving goals, commitment and consistency, a large emotional range in relationships and a sense of humor. The speakers recalled Nikolai Platonovich as an honest, principled and objective person in assessing the results of scientific research, which he consistently disseminated among his students.

A tour of the Department of Operative Surgery was arranged for the guests of the event. Much has changed here after the reconstruction of the Anatomical Building. Updated museum spaces were opened at the department, which are of great interest among cadets and doctors (the department’s museum has a unique collection of ancient medical instruments). The training operating rooms were expanded and equipped with the latest medical equipment. This allows not only to conduct training for cadets, but also to organize regular master classes for doctors from all over the country.

N.P. Bisenkov was born on February 4, 1921 into a peasant family in the village of Gaponovo, Smolensk province. He graduated from high school in Sevastopol. After graduating from the Military Medical Academy in 1942 he was sent to the front. In the army, N.P. Bisenkov served as a surgeon of a medical-sanitary battalion, and after the end of the Great Patriotic War – as the chief and leading surgeon of the military hospital, as the chief of the Molokov sanatorium. In 1948 N.P. Bisenkov entered the postgraduate course of the Military Medical Academy at the Department of Operative Surgery.

Of the entire series of lectures, which was read by Professor N.P. Bisenkov, brilliant lectures on the anatomical and physiological foundations of operations in the chest area were especially distinguished. The audience of listeners at his lectures often expanded due to guests from the adjacent departments of the Academy and the city of Leningrad.

From 1968 to 1983 he headed the Department of Operative Surgery at the Military Medical Academy.
