Gavriil Abramovich Ilizarov ( 15 June 1921 - 24 July 1992) was a Soviet physician, known for inventing the Ilizarov apparatus for lengthening limb bones and for his eponymous surgery. He was a Hero of Socialist Labor (1981), a winner of the Lenin Prize (1979), and a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences (1991). Ilizarov was born in the town of Belovezh, Polesie Voivodeship, Poland (now Belovezha in Brest Voblast, Belarus) into a Jewish family from Dagestan. Soon after his birth, the family moved to Qusar (Azerbaijan), where he grew up.
