Dr. Brown is simply a magician. I tried to rip my right arm off at the shoulder one day while vacuuming. Yes, I did this. I simply lucked out and got Dr. Brown .. caught him just as he was starting a new office location. Like the pro that he is, he magically pieced my dislocated shoulder and shattered socket (five places) back into place. A four hour surgery, I'm sure it was not the easiest thing. It was the most significant injury I have ever had. I thank him from the bottom of my heart

My husband literally tore off his left foot from falling off a ladder. He is still, after 15 years, walking on it. He has also performed 2 surgeries on my knees, one being a knee replacement. I now need a knee replacement on my right knee. I do not want anyone touching my knees but him but he has relocated to WA. Please come back to MN. George and Leah

Dr Brown performed two ortho surgeries for my wife, and three for me.The initial experience with Dr Brown was outstanding, and we returned to Dr Brown for subsequent procedures. Dr Brown has very impressive academic credentials including both PhD and MD from two of the most prestigious institutions in the world. He is considered among best in class by his peers and surgical support teams. Plus, he's a kind and considerate man willing to answer all questions thoroughly.No confusing Dr speak.

Went in for Knee pain he took x rays determine I had OA told me lose weight and ride a bike. since I work for a health insurance company I use this experience as a learning tool as to how not to treat a customer, patient etc.. Perfect example of lack of quality care from a provider.
