Steven Cohen - Craniofacial Plastic Surgeon at Fresh Start

Our Volunteers

Steven Cohen, M.D.


Through his many kids charitable surgeries, Dr. Steven Cohen has helped transform the lives of countless Fresh Start Surgical Gifts’ patients. Dr. Cohen has been a children nonprofit volunteer with Fresh Start’s kids nonprofit since 2006 and has participated and has participated in over 23 Surgery Weekends. Fresh Start Surgical Gifts also named Dr. Cohen as “Outstanding Surgeon of the Year” in 2009 for his devotion to our charity for children and our patients.

Dr. Cohen has been a strong advocate for transforming San Diego into a prime hub for craniofacial plastic surgery – before Dr. Cohen became the Chief of Craniofacial Surgery and the Surgical Director of the Craniofacial Center at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, many complex cases were transferred to UCLA or LA Childresn’s Hospital. Today, Dr. Cohen and his team now perform more than 80 complex surgeries each year and the department is one of the top 10 centers in the United States. Dr. Cohen also has his own private practice in San Diego and has been voted by his peers as one of “San Diego’s Top Doctors” for six years.
