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.


“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 to work entirely in private practice and I am a founding Partner in the London Orthopaedic Clinic, which is based at Mayo Clinic Healthcare, London.


“I have nothing but praise for Mr Cohen who has done an excellent job on my thumb in a less than straightforward revision operation. He has been my consultant for more than 20 years now and I cannot speak highly enough of him!”

“Please send my regards to Mr Cohen and Dr Babar for their amazing help with my shoulder. Due to their swift appointments and treatment on the same day I was able to move my shoulder again on the next morning and drive to the wedding. I was able to enjoy the festivities without too much discomfort and am now almost pain free and regained about 90% of my original range of motion. Thank you very much again!”

“Flawless execution at every step pre-surgery which built my confidence about the surgery itself. It and the post-op care were equally excellent. At all times, I felt treated as an individual not as number or just another routine surgical patient. Thank you for your professional expertise, high quality care, and warm, caring attitude. ”

“I saw Mr. Brian Cohen who is a delightful man, he gave me a sense of confidence that I was in the best possible hands.

Dear Brian, Thank you for arranging (at very short notice) to operate on my left hand yesterday morning. I am very grateful for all the tender loving care I received from you, your operating team, the hospital staff and your secretary Valeria, who was super efficient. I am full of admiration for your skill, professionalism, kindness & wonderful sense of humour.

“I am very pleased with the service received. “

“I am very pleased with a consultation of Mr Cohen. He gave me all possible attention, explained in full my problem with shoulder and clearly described options available. It was never rushed, he took his time to answer all my many questions and gave recommendations. I look forward to seeing him again. Mr.Cohen is a very knowledgeable, decent doctor.”

“I went to see Mr Cohen about my shoulder and bicep pain. I wanted to see the best and the best is what I got. After a consultation he recommended a positive solution which was done on the same day so I did not have go away and come back. I've seen him twice now and can say he is brilliant at what he does. I've now got mobility back in my arm and doing everyday activities again. Before I went to see him I could not even put my shoes on without pain or restriction, trying to sleep was hard, a total transformation very very quickly. Also I would like to say they have the best staff working in the office who made the whole experience even better Lorraine and Christina are amazing, thanks for everything. There's nothing to improve the experience was the best you can get and I've been to a lot of different hospitals, this hospital is absolutely outstanding from staff to the building and hygiene. ”

"Mr Cohen explained everything thoroughly."

"Brian was thorough, efficient and experienced."

Brilliant surgeon

Mr. Cohen was very Kind and explained everything very clearly.

Highly professional and helpful throughout the whole experience.

From the moment I met Mr. Cohen he made me feel at ease. He explained the fracture of my left shoulder having ordered an x-ray, decided not to operate but to wear a sling for 6 to 8 weeks and follow his instructions. Now after only 10 weeks my fracture has healed . Mr. Cohen is not only a brilliant orthopaedic surgeon but also a very friendly and kind man which makes it so much easier to cope with when in pain and a little lost of what is going to happen next. I am very grateful!

Quiet, thoughtful, not in a rush and gave me confidence for a shoulder replacement I was apprehensive about. Afterwards I was in remarkably little pain and feel great. Just need to do the physio now.

Flawless. Calm, clear, approachable, sympathetic but clear and direct as needed.

Mr Cohen is simply one of the best all round orthopaedic sports injury Consultants treating private patients in the UK.

I have complete trust in being under the care of Mr Cohen.
