Mr Brian Cohen

MD FRCS (Tr&Orth)

Mr Brian Cohen is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who specialises in surgery of the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand as well as arthroscopic techniques, trauma of the upper limb whilst also treating general trauma.

Career to date

“After qualifying from The Royal London Hospital in 1982, I trained in surgery in London and then in Cambridge. I completed my MD on the remodelling of bone in response to prosthetic implants and then spent a year on a sports medicine fellowship at a specialist orthopaedic sports clinic in Australia, learning advanced arthroscopic techniques.”

I was appointed Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at University College NHS Trust (UCLH) and Honorary Senior Lecturer at The University of London in 1996. In 1997 I was awarded the prestigious European Travelling Fellowship for the European Shoulder and Elbow Society. I was Clinical Director of Musculoskeletal Services at UCLH between 2000 and 2002. In 2004 I left the NHS and I now work solely in private practice.”

No suggestions, care has been 1st class. Ver impressed with the speed of booking an appointment through to surgery in 24 hours. Mr Cohen was able to accommodate my surgery even though he had other personal arrangements.
