Edward Gronka was born and raised in Northeastern Pennsylvania, near the Pocono Mountains. In 1977, he came to Atlanta to complete his undergraduate studies at Emory University, where he received the George P. Cuttino Award for academic achievement. He received his Medical Doctorate degree from Temple University Medical School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Dr. Gronka has extensive surgical training and over 27 years of experience practicing plastic and reconstructive surgery. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. He completed five years of General Surgery training at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami, Florida, where he was given the status of Chief Resident in his final year. He did his plastic surgery residency at Ohio State University, where he trained under world-renowned plastic surgeons.
Dr. Gronka has been in practice in Atlanta since 1992. For the past three years, Lifestyles Magazine has named him one of the “Top Docs of the Southern Arc,” a distinction voted by his peers. He attributes this award to his philosophy on the practice of plastic surgery and his treatment of individual patients: “Each patient must be evaluated as an individual, and a unique plastic surgery approach must be tailored to that person’s needs.” Dr. Gronka takes particular care to design comprehensive treatment plans that are personalized for each patient and that also look proportionate to one’s body type.
