Vesna Cekic, RN

Vesna Cekic is a Registered Nurse who began her career as a pediatric nurse in her native Montenegro. She earned her RN in 2000 and began working with Dr. Whelan shortly thereafter. Ms. Cekic is invaluable to Dr. Whelan’s research and clinical teams. With the move to Roosevelt Hospital Ms. Cekic’s role has broadened to include research responsibilities to the thoracic and breast surgery departments as well.


Ms. Cekic is the direct link between the office and hospital staff. Through the course of her research responsibilities Vesna is often the first one of our team to meet our colon resection patients the day of surgery and is often in the operating room with them throughout the procedure. After surgery she follows patients for data collection and provides a familiar face on a daily basis (weekdays) and helps and encourages them to get out of bed and to walk. She also teaches many of them to deep breath, cough, and how to use the spirometer. Vesna also gathers data from patients regarding their progress after surgery and recovery.
