Danko Cerenko, M.D., Ph.D., former Emory Professor, joined ENT of Georgia in 2002.
He received his M.D., and Ph.D. degrees from Zagreb University School of Medicine in Croatia. As a trained otolaryngologist in his native country, he was recruited in 1986, to Emory University as a Research Associate. Later he committed to an additional 5 year residency program. An interest in delicate ear surgery and helping people with ear disease that started in 1978, at the University of Tuebingen, Germany, was crowned by a prestigious fellowship with Dr. Ugo Fisch in Zuerich, Switzerland (1995/96) in the field of Otology and Neurotology, a subspecialty that deals with the most demanding problems of the ear, hearing, tinnitus, and balance in children and adults.
Overall, prior to joining ENT of Georgia, Dr. Cerenko spent 15 years at Emory learning, teaching and caring for patients. For several years he also held an appointment at Egleston Children’s Hospital, and VAMC. At the latter he started the first cochlear implant program for deaf veterans. Dr. Cerenko has performed more than one hundred cochlear implants, acoustic neuroma surgeries, bone implanted hearing aids, laser stapes surgeries, and few thousands of middle ear and mastoid surgeries for chronic ear disease, perforated ear drum, cholesteatoma, brain fluid leak, Meniere’s disease, many of them with ossicular chain reconstruction. As an integral part of Atlanta Hearing Institute, Dr. Cerenko helps identify the true nature of the hearing loss, based on which he then recommends either conventional hearing aids, or the most appropriate corrective surgical procedure, including several implantable hearing aid solutions.
Dr. Cerenko cares with equal passion for patients with general Ear, Nose, and Throat problems, including surgical management of chronic sinus disease, balloon sinuplasty, allergy, chronic hoarseness, sleep disorders and snoring.
