I was so saddened when Dr. Brown left San Diego. He was my Neurosurgeon for a while. He performed several surgeries having to do with my VP Shunt including emergency brain surgery to alleviate fluid pressure off my brain. Other doctors could never figure anything out but Dr. Brown never stopped until he found an answer. He even called my parents to check on me after one of my surgeries to see how I was recovering b/c he knew how much I disliked surgeries and pain. Anyone who in under Dr. Brown’s care is in GREAT hands! God bless Dr Brown!

Not only is Dr. Brown the pioneer of the nerve transfer. His kindness is extraordinary. He took a nerve from a bicep and transferred it to C6 and C7 to revive a atrophied trapezius which was a high success. You are forever in our hearts Dr. Brown.

I came to Dr. Brown after months of being shuffled around to different doctors who couldn't agree on the cause of my foot drop. Dr.Brown redid the tests I had already had, but the EMG was done more thoroughly. He determined it was spinal stenosis and operated last Friday. I walked out of the hospital the same day with significant improvement. He was honest with me about my chances, they actually weren't very good because of the delay in treatment, but was willing to try to help me. He's the one
