Dr. Cobb, a board-certified neurosurgeon, graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania before receiving a Doctoral degree in neuroscience from Rutgers University studying the neurochemistry and neurophysiology of the brain. Upon completing his doctoral degree, Dr. Cobb then graduated from the New Jersey Medical School where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society and received the NJMS highest student honor, the Stanley S.

Dr. Cobb continues to have a strong interest in diseases of the brain and spine with a particular focus in neurological oncology. In particular, he is interested in the use of stereotactic radiosurgery in conjunction with surgical intervention in the treatment of tumors of the brain and spine. Dr. Cobb also has a strong interest in minimally invasive spine surgery for the treatment of degenerative spine and intervertebral disc disease.
