Benjamin R. Cohen is a board-certified neurosurgeon specializing in spinal surgery. His practice includes revision spine surgery, adult scoliosis, and the treatment of spinal tumors and infections.To produce the best possible surgical and lifestyle outcomes, Dr. Cohen works in collaboration with a team of fellowship-trained professionals, including experts in orthopaedic spine and plastic surgery.

Some of Dr. Cohen and his team's specializations include the following treatments and conditions:

Revision Spine Surgery

Indicated for patients experiencing continued or worsened pain following spinal surgery, revision spine surgery may be used to repair problems from earlier surgical interventions. Revision spine surgery can help to reduce pain and resume normal activities in cases of post-surgical complication, unsuccessful surgeries or instances where scar tissue has formed around the nerve.

Spinal Tumor Treatment

Spinal tumor care often necessitates a complex and delicate surgery; the goal is to remove as much of the tumor as possible while preserving neurological function by protecting crucial parts of the spine and surrounding structures.

Spinal Fractures & Traumatic Injuries Treatment

Spinal fractures vary widely in severity. The first line of treatment for fractures and traumatic injuries is often a conservative, non-surgical approach. In cases where pain from a compression fracture or traumatic injury persists, surgery may be considered.

Spine Oncology

The last 25 years have seen the emergence of spinal oncology as a field of its own, as technological advances have led to improved success rates and quality of life outcomes for spinal cancer patients. New treatment modalities such as spinal radiosurgery as well as minimally invasive methods have helped to make these improvements possible.

Scoliosis & Spinal Deformities Treatment

In the vast majority of cases, spinal curves are mild and require minimal or no active treatment. Spinal curves beyond 40-50 degrees are often considered for spine stabilization surgery in order to prevent further progression and normalize spinal function while reducing any associated pain.

Disc Degeneration Treatment

Degenerative disc disease can often be treated successfully without surgery. Surgery may be recommended if other more conservative treatment options fail to provide relief within 2-3 months, especially if the disc degeneration is causing functional problems.

Spinal Stenosis Treatment

The narrowing of spaces in the spine puts pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots that causes pain and can interfere with walking, bladder function or normal neurological function. In many advanced cases of stenosis, decompression surgery is indicated in order to restore normal functioning.

Spinal Fusion

Spinal fusion is a surgical technique that fuses affected vertebrae together in order to stop motion between them. Fusing the vertebrae may be recommended in cases such as fractures, severe deformities and slippages, disc herniations and others.

Dr. Cohen is also highly trained in minimally invasive spine surgery techniques. The majority of patients with an acute onset of back or neck pain will not require surgical treatment, however, some less invasive treatments include:

  • Microdiscectomy
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF)
