Sometimes it’s difficult to remember that our doctors not only have personal lives but professional lives that include activities other than clinical care. Dr. Brian D. Cohen, in addition to being an outstanding board-certified plastic surgeon, with offices in Great Neck and Manhattan, is a well-respected expert in his field throughout the country. A director and attending physician in the Plastic Surgery Division of Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, his knowledge and empathy for his patients are celebrated by his peers. As a matter of fact, he has been chosen for seven consecutive years as a top plastic surgeon as published in Super Doctors, New York and as a Newsday Top Doctor in 2019 by Castle Connolly.
Evidence of Dr. Cohen’s ongoing passion for his chosen field can be found in how frequently he is asked to give lectures to other professionals and how much he enjoys instructing his colleagues in innovative plastic surgery and nonsurgical aesthetic techniques. In March 2018, for example, he gave three lectures at the Miami Breast Cancer Conference, a national symposium. The conference ran from March 8 to 11 and covered a wide variety of topics and subspecialties related to the central subject of the forum. The titles of his lectures demonstrate the depth of his knowledge of his area of expertise:
- Indocyanine Green Angiography in Daily Breast Surgical Practice (3-8-2018)
- Prepectoral Breast Reconstruction in 2018 (3-9-2018)
- Breast Implant Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma:
- An overview of facts, myths and sensational media (3-10-2018)
Arcane as these articles may be to the layperson, they are enlightening to those who work with the intricacies of breast surgeries, not to mention of great significance to patients who benefit from their conclusions. Dr. Cohen is truly at the forefront of modern medicine, always seeking improved methods to treat his patients and to enlarge the accumulated body of knowledge in his field.
Why Dr. Brian Cohen Is Chosen as a Lecturer
As most of us are aware, lectures only convey needed information when the lecturer holds the interest of the audience by engaging them with relevant data. A good lecturer, in addition, must be accessible to his/her audience. Like any good teacher, he/she must radiate a desire to connect in order to communicate on a meaningful level. Dr. Cohen does both. It is clear to those who have attended one of his lectures that he not only knows his subject matter thoroughly, but that he enjoys sharing his knowledge with his colleagues. More than that, he is receptive to new ideas and always open to new sources of information.
