The Center Orthopedic & Neurosurgical Care & Research is pleased to announce the addition of David A. Brown, MD, to our orthopedic surgeon team. Dr. Brown is board certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons. His unique background as a military orthopedic surgeon, as well as being an orthopedic surgeon in a remote part of Alaska, has given him broad experience and proficiency with complex injuries.
After being on active duty as an infantry officer and spending time with military athletes, Dr. Brown became interested in orthopedics. He earned his medical degree at Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, in Bethesda, Maryland, and then returned to active duty as an army physician. He spent 11 years at Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio, the military’s only level 1 trauma and burn center. During that time, he did a tour in Afghanistan and was the Commander of a Forward Surgical Team, leading a 20-man surgical team and providing care for a wide array of complex trauma patients.
After retiring from the army, Dr. Brown spent several years as an orthopedic surgeon at a critical access hospital in Southeast Alaska, where he provided orthopedic services for trauma, total joints, hands, sports, and pediatric patients. He joins The Center’s multidisciplinary team of expert orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and physiatrists to provide comprehensive treatment solutions.
