I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the wrist resulting from scapho-lunate advanced collapse. My Orange County hand-and-wrist surgeon told me that there were surgical options, but they were aggressive and not always successful. He recommended that I "live with" my painful and debilitating condition, offering no other options. Dr. Cohen discussed all my options with me. He explained that he could do the "big surgery," but my X-rays indicated that a more conservative approach should be considered first. He explained that a nerve resection wouldn't repair my joint; but it might alleviate pain sufficiently to allow me to regain use of my wrist and hand. He tested me by doing a nerve block, which immediately stopped the pain, indicating I was a good candidate for the procedure. The procedure worked out better than I had hoped--six weeks after surgery, my range of motion has been restored 75%; my hand strength has improved; and I've been able to resume my normal day-to-day activities pain-free. Dr. Cohen is technically excellent and very well-informed. He listened to me; understood my concerns and objectives; and discussed all my options with me. His advice was well-reasoned and conservative. His knowledge, concern and commitment extended far beyond the surgical procedure. He is knowledgeable and instructive about post-operative therapy, joint care, and even nutritional supplements. Dr. Cohen is a brilliant surgeon who cares passionately about his patients.

Dr Brian Rudin fixed my neck and then Dr. Glenn Cohen fixed my cubital tunnel. There is no better partnership then these two. They carefully explain in understandable language, give many options, operate better then most surgeons and they are there for you the entire time. You will never see a P.A. or RN in lieu of the surgeons. You will never be told that they are in some other office 50 miles away. Keep up the great work! There is definitely cheaper but there is no better!!

I wasted a lot of time and money on plastic surgeons. Dr. Cohen is the real deal. I would recommend you see him first before you have an unnecessary surgery. Thank goodness I found him before my problem could no longer be fixed.

I have gone to Dr.Cohen before and his staff is so kind and helpful. He is such a great and talented Doctor! If I ever break any fingers again he would be the first person I would go to for sure! He is the best doctor in my city! I would like to thank him and his fabulous staff for the great care they provided me with :)

Having surgery is not usually a pleasant experience unless your surgeon is Dr Glenn Cohen. Coming from a patient who is very anxious, Dr Cohen and his staff are compassionate, professional, and very knowledgeable. Having my surgery at the Speciality Surgical Center and my anesthesiologist Dr Farnum made my surgery the best experience it could have been. I am now almost 2 weeks post-op and I couldn't be more impressed with my results. If you are looking for an excellent orthopedic surgeon you can trust, go see Dr Cohen.

Dr. Cohen has proven to be the smartest, most honest and caring orthopedic related physician I have ever seen. With a serious and potentially career ending hand injury he not only took all the time I needed to feel comfortable with him and with the procedure he said was required but provided the care both during and after that was first rate. This extended to his staff as well which he obviously picked with great care. I have recommended him to several people and they all came away with the same feelings - talented, honest and caring.

I was very happy with my experience at Dr. Cohens office. I had crushed my wrist out of the country, and by the time I got back to the US, Dr. Cohen was able to work me into his schedule for surgery right away. The staff was very professional and I highly recommend him.
