Before embarking on his professional journey, Dr. Cobb graduated with his medical degree from the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine in Lubbock in 1991. After graduation, he completed his Orthopaedic surgery  residency and earned his Master of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences at the renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota. Following these accomplishments, he obtained further expertise with a fellowship in hand, upper extremity, and microvascular surgery at the University of Texas. 

He relocated to the Davenport and Quad Cities area in 2000 to join an orthopaedic practice, where he served as the Director of the Hand and Upper Extremity Center. After almost 20 years, he opened his own specialized practice –  the Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist and Hand Center of Excellence.

 Dr. Cobb continues to utilize his extensive training to develop state-of-the-art medical devices designed to reduce downtime and maximize benefits. This combination of technique and technology is the cornerstone of his patient-centered philosophy.

Established in his field, the doctor is board-certified in orthopaedic surgery and surgery of the hand by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS).
