The goal of my practice is to help people return to function by developing an individualised treatment plan for them. Consultation with each patient is aimed to first reach the correct diagnosis, and secondly to treat each patient in the context of their lives and function. Far too often patients are treated based on their image findings without spending sufficient time exploring the patient’s symptoms and how it affects their lives.
Dr Kohan graduated from the University of New South Wales in 1998, and completed his neurosurgical training in Sydney and Melbourne in 2007.
After completing his internship and one year of residency in Sydney, he started his training in neurosurgery. He has worked with some of the most respected neurosurgeons and spine surgeons in Sydney and Melbourne as well as spending a year at St. Vincent’s Hospital Sydney undertaking a spinal surgery fellowship program. He regularly attends local and overseas training seminars on the latest management of brain conditions in adults and children, and complex spine pathologies.
His experience in brain tumour surgery was enhanced following completion of his formal training in neurosurgery, undertaking fellowship in paediatric neurosurgery with Prof. Memet Ozek (former president of European Society for Paediatric Neurosurgery), where he gained in depth knowledge and skills in the management of brain stem tumours, congenital spinal malformations, brain and neuro-endoscopy (keyhole brain surgery).
I have worked as a medical secretary for the last 9 years and I am very proud of where I work and to be part of the team with Dr Kohan. I really enjoy my job and particularly love interacting and supporting patients in any way I can to make their experience within the practice as smooth as possible.
