About Steven R. Cohen, MD

Cited as one of San Diego’s best, Dr. Steven Cohen specializes in cosmetic and craniofacial surgery. An erudite physician and surgeon, Dr. Cohen trained at UCLA; Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, in New York City; and the University of Pennsylvania; and was a member of the faculty at the University of Michigan. As an expert in his field, he has penned over 150 articles of medical literature and has been a guest speaker and visiting surgeon in countries across the globe. Castle Connolly selected him as one of the Top Doctors in America, an honor that less than one percent of today’s physicians ever receive. More recently, Dr. Cohen was selected by US News and World Report as one of the top plastic surgeons in America. Cohen began as a heart surgeon, but after watching a PBS program on craniofacial surgery for children, he knew that he had found his true calling. In 1999, Dr. Cohen and his family moved to San Diego so he could serve as chief of craniofacial surgery and surgical director at the Craniofacial Center at Rady Children’s Hospital of San Diego. Dr. Cohen’s commitment to helping children with facial deformities has been a driving force in his life and career. With the impressive team at Rady, he has developed myriad new techniques to treat patients with facial deformities and helped build Rady Hospital into one of the premier craniofacial centers in the United States. In 2003, he launched a new company, FACES+ Plastic Surgery, Skin and Laser Center, which stands as a thriving practice for adult cosmetic needs. Renowned as a top plastic surgeon in the community, Cohen implements cutting-edge techniques and stays at the forefront of new technology and research. He also helped create the Cell Society, a nonprofit, international organization founded to educate physicians and the public on the enormous potential use of adult regenerative cell therapies. His charitable efforts also continue through his philanthropic commitment to the Children’s Circle of Care at Rady Children’s Hospital and to the Physician Leadership Council. “I am honored to have been selected as one of the top plastic surgeons in San Diego, but more importantly, I am thrilled to have wonderful patients, a terrific staff, and a highly professional medical community in which to practice.”
