- My daughter is my energy and she is the reason that I continue to go on. She keeps me moving, she makes me happy. The main thing is not to be lazy. It is necessary to love the profession. When a person loves his or her profession, everything is way more interesting and the person enthusiastically moves forward.


 - She is very ambitious, hardworking, and responsible and does not miss her trainings. She loves her life so much. She deserves to be a winner of the ‘100 New Faces of Kazakhstan’ project. We give 150 to 200 per cent for our Kazakhstan.

The winner of the ‘100 New Faces of Kazakhstan’ project from Karaganda has helped to treat over 200 disabled children using the method of orthopedist, Roza Alimkhanova. Roza is the creator of a unique method of treating congenital abnormalities of the musculoskeletal system. She refused to perform the traditional surgical methods to treat disability. Instead, Roza uses the technique of limb muscle relaxation.


- There are 247 different types of deformed foot and that is only relating to foot. The treatment methods used in orthopedics are outdated. A child with normal psychomotor development can become disabled. Previously, orthopedists would pull and try to treat only the foot but I realized that the whole treatment process is not only about foot, but the thighs and legs muscles as well.

The Doctor of Science has patented more than 30 innovations and gained international recognition. The talented doctor has been invited to work in Europe and China. However, Roza Alimkhanova’s dream is to open a specialized clinic in Kazakhstan.
