Just wanted to give an update, it’s been 7 months since my hip replacement with Dr. Cohen and his team. I just want to say thank you…there has been no pain and I'm doing things I haven't done in 15 years. I played softball last Thursday and it was fantastic. Thank you again!

…my surgeon, Dr. Russell Cohen…I can't praise him enough. I was well-prepared for the surgery itself. Everything was spelled out and all my concerns were addressed. Dr. Cohen was very thorough but also accessible; I felt he really listened to all my questions and concerns. Thank you, thank you for your wonderful care.
