More About Dr. Cohen
Dr. Stephanie M. Cohen did her undergraduate work at Brandeis University in Boston and earned her M.D. degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C. where she was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society.

Dr. Cohen then went on to complete plastic surgery training at the New York Hospital/Cornell Medical Center and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. There, Dr. Cohen developed a special interest and skill in the area of reconstructive surgery, especially concentrated on the breast. Her dedication to the craft has earned her the nickname of the “breast whisperer” from her fellow colleagues and patients.
A long time dream of Dr. Cohen’s was to travel to developing countries and provide expert surgical care to those who have no other possible access to medical care. This became a reality in 2007 when she became a founding member and Vice President of ISMS Operation Kids.
Op Kids is a surgical mission dedicated to the treatment of pediatric surgical and medical disorders. Through yearly missions to places such as Kenya, Egypt, Peru and others, Dr. Cohen has operated on more than 150 children with disorders ranging from cleft lip and palate to debilitating burns.
