Helping patients get back to their active lifestyle is what keeps me coming to work every day.”

Nathaniel P. Cohen, M.D.

Through my participation in several sports growing up, I developed a strong interest in sports medicine. As a Fellowship-trained orthopedic doctor with a certificate of added qualification in sports medicine, I provide experienced orthopedic care that keeps you active so you can do what you love to do. In addition to sports medicine, I also specialize in the ankle, elbow, hip, knee, and shoulder. I am dedicated to providing individualized care using the most innovative, proven techniques, and when I am not treating patients or on the sidelines at a football game, I focus on designing new medical devices and developing creative solutions for patient care.

I enjoy spending my free time with my children, playing golf, hiking, and sea kayaking. I also enjoy geocaching and photography.

Please let me know if there is anything my staff and I can do to improve your experience at OrthoNorCal. I look forward to meeting you!
