Dr. Cohn was born in San Antonio and raised in the Texas Hill Country. He received his undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at Austin in 1992 and went on to medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, earning a medical degree in 1996.

He practiced general orthopaedics in the Hill Country for 15 years, serving as team physician for several local high schools. He performed the first reverse total shoulder replacement in the Texas Hill Country and was instrumental in the development of Hill Country Memorial’s RESTORE program for shoulder, hip, and knee replacement.

It is his goal daily that each patient he encounters leaves well informed regarding their condition and comfortable with the treatment option they have chosen to pursue. He believes that a well-informed patient is paramount to the best possible outcome. He explains to his patients that their treatment is a partnership and it is imperative that they take an active role in their rehabilitation.
