Orthopedic surgeon in legal battle with Adena joins competing system


Brian Cohen, MD, an orthopedic surgeon previously employed with Adena Health System, is now practicing with Columbus-based OhioHealth, according to the Chillicothe Gazette.

Five notes:

1. Dr. Cohen and two other orthopedic surgeons filed a countersuit against Adena in May, alleging that the Chillicothe, Ohio-based health system retaliated against them and breached their employment contracts.

2. Adena previously sued the surgeons, alleging they breached their contracts by pushing other physicians to resign. The surgeons filed a motion to dismiss Adena's suit, claiming it does not have viable cause to support the allegations.

3. Dr. Cohen, a specialist in robotic-assisted knee and hip replacements, is practicing at five OhioHealth locations and performing surgery at Grove City (Ohio) Methodist Hospital and OhioHealth Bone and Joint Center at Grant in Columbus, according to the report.

4. He is the former medical director of The Adena Bone and Joint Center in Chillicothe.

5. Over the past 20 years, Dr. Cohen has performed more than 30,000 orthopedic surgeries and treated more than 100,000 patients, according to his website.
