Treatment of spinal disorders, including spinal surgery, herniated discs, reconstructive surgery, sciatica, scoliosis, and degenerative disorders 


“After several months of living with pain. After seeing a chiropractor, having physical therapy, and trying acupuncture, nothing was helping. I sought care from Dr. Cohen. I couldn't look up, down, or to the side. After MRI, Dr. Cohen determined I had three herniated discs, and I could try epidural shots, but that would only be a temporary band-aid. He recommended that I needed surgery to repair three discs in my neck. He would insert a plate and screws. He took the time along with Adrienne his nurse (which seems to be his right-hand person) to explain in detail what I would experience before, during, and after surgery. Dr. Cohen explained to my husband after surgery that he couldn't believe how much pain I was tolerating. I was bone on bone. After surgery, it was a rough week; each day got better. I'm here one year later, pain-free, complete range of motion, working out five times a week and feel great. I owe all of it to Dr. Cohen. I feel like he saved me.”
