Biography: Since 2007, Milomir Kovac has been the only full-time available equine surgeon specialist in the Russian Federation. He started the first implementation equine colic surgery in Russia. In the course of ten years, 300 such operations were performed, with the percentage of survival rate of over 82%. Prior 2007, all horses with intestinal strangulation died in the Russian Federation, because nobody could perform the colic surgery. In addition, Milomir Kovac was the first in the Russian Federation, to perform laparoscopic surgery for equine cryptorchidism, and cryosurgery to remove abdominal and skin tumors. He was the first to use the mesenchymal stem cells and platelet-rich plasma for the treatment of equine tendon and ligament injury. In cooperation with Joseph Toth, he first performed a pars plana vitrectomy of horses with equine recurrent uveitis, as well as first performed an evisceration with insertion of an intrascleral prosthesis of horses in the Russian Federation.
