Biographical or historical data
Jacob da Silva Solis Cohen, Philadelphia otolaryngologist, was born in New York on 28 February 1838. He married Miriam Binswanger on 10 February 1874; they had nine children. Cohen died in Philadelphia on 22 December 1927. Cohen received his M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1860. He served a brief residency at the Pennsylvania Hospital, then held several positions as a surgeon during the Civil War. He opened his private practice in Philadelphia in 1866 and began to concentrate on diseases of the throat and chest. In 1867, he performed the first successful American laryngotomy for removal of a cancerous growth; he also performed the first closed-field laryngotomy in 1892. In 1867 he assumed the post of Lecturer in Electrotherapeutics at Jefferson Medical College, then became Lecturer in Laryngoscopy and Diseases of the Chest in 1869. He also helped to found the Philadelphia Polyclinic and College for Graduates in Medicine and became Professor of Diseases of the Throat and Chest there. In 1890-1891, an honorary professorship in laryngology was created for Cohen at Jefferson. He published several works including, Diseases of the throat (1872) and the revised edition, Diseases of the throat and nasal passages (1879). Cohen also helped to establish the American Laryngological Association and was its President (1880-1882). He was elected to fellowship in the College of Physicians of Philadelphia in 1871.
