Hello! My name is Dr. Lawrence Cohn and I am a heart surgeon having graduated from Stanford in 1962. To date, I have performed approximately 11,250 cardiac surgical procedures, of which 8,000 involved heart valve operations. I perform surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital.
"Incredibly positive experience with Dr. Larry Cohn and everyone at the Shapiro Center of Brigham & Women's Hospital. We got world class care. "
"Dr. Larry Cohn was great. His confidence in his ability to repair my mitral valve was exactly what I needed. My surgery was only 23 days ago, but I felt confident going into the surgery and I feel great now. I am impressed with both Dr. Cohn and the Brigham & Women's Hospital and staff."
"My experience was great. Dr. Lawrence Cohn is a very experienced and gifted surgeon. I couldn't have picked anyone better. I am very happy with the result and feel almost back to normal. "
"Dr. Larry Cohn made a wonderful impression on me because, unlike other surgeons I contacted, he and his staff answered my questions, including what his repair rate is (99%!). He is very efficient and he is a WONDERFUL surgeon and was able to repair my valve, which was apparently the leakiest he'd seen that year."
"Having Dr. Larry Cohn was a good surgical experience. He exuded confidence, knowledge and I felt he knew what he was doing. His bedside manner was clear and concise always with assurance. Results - my heart valve has been replaced and I have a healthy valve! "
"I found Dr. Larry Cohn to be straight forward and professional. He specializes in mitral valve repairs. Most importantly, I liked him and trusted him. I am very happy with the results."
"Dr. Cohn is perhaps the most dedicated professional that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I found him to be genuine, honest, trustworthy and caring. He was precise, methodical and inspirational never mind incredibly gifted. He is referred to often around the hospital as "Dr. Fix It" and that he did. I can't thank him enough for saving my life! I don't think one could find a finer surgeon anywhere."
"Available, right to the point and confidence inspiring. Dr. Larry Cohn provided me with another chance at life and I will always be grateful to him."
"Dr. Larry Cohn is an excellent surgeon. I am extremely pleased with his care and treatment of me. I like him and recommend him and Brigham & Women's highly. The entire surgery and recovery went very well, and I feel that I was treated very well by everyone involved throughout the surgery and recovery process. "
