Born in the town of Tuzla in Bosnia (former Yugoslavia), Dr. Goran Tesic, MD lived there until the civil war that plagued the region forced him and his family to leave. At a very young age, he was exposed to the medical field via his mother, Dr. Sabina Halilovic, an ENT specialist who became a Trauma Surgeon during the conflict in his native Bosnia. His father, Mirko Tesic, was the head engineer of the large coal mine fields surrounding Tuzla.
In 1992, Dr. Tesic and his family left Bosnia and began a new life in Oslo, Norway. Dr. Tesic finished high school in Norway and decided he wanted to explore Europe; he did so by furthering his medical education in Budapest, Hungary. It was there he matriculated to one of the oldest universities in Europe, Semmelweis University. He graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2010, and following in his mothers footsteps began a general surgery residency in New York City at the teaching hospital Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons – Columbia University. He continued his professional development as a Vascular Surgery Fellow at Staten Island University Hospital.
During his time in New York he met his wife, Gechi Tesic, JD, then a law student at Columbia University. His wife’s southern background and career pursuits brought them to Dallas, Texas where he now resides and practices. In his free time, Dr. Tesic enjoys spending time with his wife and friends, exploring all that Dallas has to offer, and becoming as “Texan” as possible; he recently got himself a huge, Dodge pickup, a cowboy hat and boots!
