Surgeon Ellie Cohen, MD has joined the General Surgery practice at Northfield Hospital, whose surgeons perform a wide range of procedures – and provide 24/7 coverage for emergency surgery.
Dr. Cohen believes it’s important to learn from each of her patients and strives to give individualized, quality care. “I believe in looking at the patient’s individual needs to give them the best care that they need at that time,” Dr. Cohen says. “It’s really special to have the solution for them, and be able to fix someone’s problem in a matter of hours.”

We just get so much more information with 3D, it seems an obvious choice.’”
