Mr Cherko is a Consultant ENT Surgeon at The Royal Berkshire Hospital
After graduating from King’s College London in 2009, he completed his surgical training across centres in both the Thames Valley and London regions. A fellowship in thyroid and parathyroid surgery spanning Oxford and Berkshire has provided him with a prime understanding of the regional thyroid network, and afforded the benefit of working with both endocrine and ENT surgeons in the field.
This was succeeded by completing a prestigious fellowship in complex laryngology at the National Airway Reconstruction Centre, Charing Cross, London. There, he gained extensive experience treating a unique cohort of patients with a vast presentation of disorders affecting the voice, swallow and breathing; performing a high volume of both surgical airway procedures and interventional clinic-based procedures. He has a strong link with and appreciation of allied professionals in treating these disorders such as speech and swallow therapists.
Beyond clinical work he has a keen interest in medical education and training with particular focus on emergency simulation-based training, through his faculty role on national resuscitation courses. He has also co-authored book chapters on thyroid and voice surgery, and his research interests saw him occupy the role of regional trainee research champion for national clinical studies in ENT.
