Dr. Cohen specializes in minimally invasive spine surgery and the XLIF procedure.
In 2006, Dr. Cohen became the first surgeon in New York City to perform the minimally invasive XLIF (eXtreme Lateral Interbody Fusion) and AxiaLIF procedures. These procedures provide a minimally invasive lateral approach to spinal surgery. Many patients benefit from a shorter hospital stay, less blood loss and a quicker recovery period. Dr. Cohen and the team remain regional leaders in spine care, performing numerous minimally invasive procedures for patients with multiple spinal conditions. He is board-certified in neurological surgery.
