Dr. Brown is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery. He is the senior founding partner of OA, established in 1982 and retired in 2017.

I feel very fortunate to have practiced at OA for more than 30 years. OA’s vision from the outset has been to provide high quality comprehensive orthopaedic care in a setting that promotes integration and efficiency. Now, in an environment where high quality and low cost are paramount, OA’s model remains key – large enough to be broad and comprehensive and efficient, yet small enough to be personal and nimble and innovative.”
