Dr. Arnold Cohn is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who evaluates patients with all conditions of the musculo-skeletal system. His specialties include hip and knee joint replacement surgery, as well as minimally invasive surgery for sports related injuries. He routinely performs hand surgery for a variety of common hand conditions. Diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the back and neck are also an area of interest.
Dr. Cohn evaluates the patient as a whole, taking into consideration non-orthopaedic medical conditions and psychological factors. He carefully listens to patients’ descriptions of their problems and provides realistic expectations of what their care can accomplish. Every attempt is made to use the most minimally invasive methods and great care is taken to avoid surgical complications.
The satisfaction of seeing one of his patients walk down the hall after recovering from a serious injury remains one of his great joys.
Dr. Cohn has had a life long interest in problem solving. The first of many United States Patents was issued to him when he developed a pediatric restraint system while completing his internship at Loyola University Medical Center.
He received a Bachelor of Arts Degree with High Distinction in Anthropology from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. His MD degree was earned at The Chicago Medical School, and internship and orthopaedic surgery residency were completed at Loyola University Medical Center, where Dr. Cohn is Associate Clinical Professor.
