About the Provider

Jeffrey E. Cohen, MD, is a cardiovascular surgeon at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and the surgical director of the Structural Heart program for Washington region. He also serves as assistant professor of surgery at Georgetown University School of Medicine

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 aneurysm and dissection. He specializes in complex aortic surgery and structural heart therapies, implementing open, endovascular, and transcatheter techniques including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR), and transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR).

He is a member of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons and serves as associate editor for the international, peer-reviewed journal Cardiovascular Revascularization Medicine (CRM).

Dr. Cohen earned his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He then completed a residency in general surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, followed by a fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery at Stanford University Medical Center.

Dr. Cohen’s research has focused on developing novel therapies to correct the lack of blood flow to the heart to prevent tragic events such as a myocardial infarction, or a heart attack. His groundbreaking research investigating photosynthetic therapy for ischemic disease was published in Science Advances. His upcoming work will include studying gene therapy to address coronary artery disease. He has presented his research at a variety of national and international symposia and was a faculty speaker at the recent CRT meeting­–one of the world’s leading interventional cardiology conferences.

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.”
