Maxillofacial surgeon, plastic surgeon of head and neck
Assist Prof Aleksandar Milenović, MD, PhD was born in Osijek, Croatia where he graduated from elementary and high school. He moved to Zagreb to study medicine and graduated with top marks in 1994. The fine structures of the head and neck became a complete challenge for Dr Milenović who decided to specialise in maxillofacial surgery. Parallel to this, he also completed a plastic and reconstructive head and neck surgery specialisation.
He obtained his master’s degree from the University of Zagreb, School of Dental Medicine with the thesis on Nervous dysfunction after neck dissection. He obtained his doctorate 7 years later also from the University of Zagreb, School of Dental Medicine with the thesis on Sentinel biopsy in the oral cavity tumour.
His furthered his education, at both the theoretical and practical levels, in the world’s top plastic surgery centres in New York, Glasgow, London, and Vienna.
Today, he is not only a successful physician, but also a professor at the Department of Maxillofacial Surgery at the Faculty of Dental Medicine and a member of the Croatian Society for Maxillofacial, Plastic and Reconstructive Head and Neck Surgery and the European Society for Craniomyaxo-Facial Surgery.
He regularly shares his knowledge at specialised world conferences. He has participated as a lecturer in more than 100 domestic and world congresses. He is fluent in English and German.
He is happy to be able to save lives in the Clinical Hospital Dubrava in the morning and apply his knowledge and experience at Imed Polyclinic in the afternoons. For him, work is a creative challenge that results in the pleasure of every patient.
