Hip pain in young adults – this symptom may occur for a variety of reasons and may be extremely disabling. The potential cause should be investigated thoroughly to determine the most appropriate course of action. Mr Cohen performs hip arthroscopy in appropriate individuals as a way of treating such symptoms. Mr Cohen is the only surgeon in Norfolk and Suffolk who performs hip arthroscopy. In July 2011, an article was published about Mr Cohen’s hip arthroscopy surgery for the Daily Mail health section.
Some young patients with hip related symptoms require other types of operation which are also offered by Mr Cohen. The purpose of these operations is to try to prevent osteoarthritis of the hip from occurring. Mr Cohen has been keen to encourage the professional development of GPs in Norfolk and Suffolk on this aspect of orthopaedic surgery through seminars and lectures given at The Spire and The James Paget Hospital.
Much of Mr Cohen’s practice includes patients with osteoarthritis of the hip requiring hip replacement. This is an area in which he has considerable experience with low complication rates using appropriate implants to suit patient needs.
Mr Cohen also has a specialist interest in sports injuries of the knee and in performing surgery to correct such injuries.
