About the Provider

Dr. Cohen treats the complete range of adult cardiac diseases, including aortic stenosis and regurgitation, mitral regurgitation, mitral stenosis, tricuspid valve disease, endocarditis, coronary artery disease, and aortic aneurysms and dissections. He specializes in complex aortic surgery implementing both open and endovascular repair techniques. He also focuses on coronary artery bypass (CABG) along with minimally invasive aortic and mitral valve surgery including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).

Dr. Cohen’s research has focused on developing novel therapies to correct the lack of blood flow to the heart following traumatic events such as a heart attack (myocardial infarction). His groundbreaking research investigating the utilization of light to fuel the heart muscle through the process of photosynthesis was published in Science Advances in 2017.

Philosophy of Care
“I consider it a privilege to be granted the trust to operate on my patients. I believe in spending as much time with them as needed in order to inform them about their treatment, including pre-operative preparation, surgery, and post-operative care. I strive to offer patients the newest and most up-to-date therapies that will give them the best long-term results, most successful surgical outcomes, and shortest hospital stays. I offer them my recommendations for the best plan of care, recognizing that all key decisions must be made between myself, the patient, and the patient’s loved ones.”
