Biography

Originally from Chicago where he graduated valedictorian from Niles West High School, Dr. Cohen received his bachelor's degree from Stanford University, graduating with highest distinction and departmental honors. He then attended Harvard Medical School, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with honors in a special field. After serving an orthopaedic residency at the University of California, San Diego, he completed a hand, upper extremity and microvascular fellowship at the Indiana Hand Center, one of the largest and prestigious hand centers in the country. Dr. Cohen is the author of more than 129 medical articles, 57 book chapters and he has written a textbook on Hand and Wrist injuries. In addition, he is an editor of Green's Operative Hand Surgery, the most widely read and recognized Hand and Elbow Surgery textbook in the world. He has participated in over 315 continuing education courses where he has taught other doctors, serving as Course Chairman 49 times. For the last 25 years, he has been the Director of the Orthopaedic Hand and Elbow Section at Rush University, and he currently serves as the Director of Orthopaedic Education in the department. He has won several research, teaching and achievement awards and is a member of 16 national and international medical societies and associations.
