Education and Training

Dr. Koehler is a proud alum of Colgate University where he double majored in Molecular Biology and Music.  He graduated Magna Cum Laude.  Following graduation, Dr. Koehler spent two years at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD, participating in cutting-edge orthopaedic research.  He then attended the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City and remained at Mount Sinai for his residency in orthopaedic surgery.  As a resident, Dr. Koehler was selected by the orthopaedic surgery department to be the administrative chief resident in his final year.  After residency, Dr. Koehler was selected to attend one of the most prestigious fellowships in the country: the Duke University fellowship in hand, upper extremity and microvascular surgery.  After completing his fellowship, Dr. Koehler joined SUNY Downstate Medical Center as the director of hand and microsurgery.  He has become one of the most in-demand hand and microsurgeons in New York City.
