Gabriel D. Brown, MD, FAAOS
Dr. Gabriel Brown was born in Cape Town, South Africa. He immigrated to the United States in 1989 and settled with his family in Mamaroneck, NY. He graduated from Washington University in St. Louis, followed by the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Columbia University. As a resident, Dr. Brown assisted in the management of several sports teams including Columbia University, the City College of New York.
Following orthopedic surgery residency, Dr. Brown completed an additional year of specialized training in the operative and non-operative management of sports medicine injuries. He completed his Sports Medicine Fellowship at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic, specializing in the treatment of professional, elite and recreational athletes. He participated in the care of professional athletes playing for USC Football, LA Lakers, LA Sparks, LA Dodgers, LA Kings, Anaheim Angels, and Anaheim Ducks.
While at Kerlan-Jobe, Dr. Brown trained in state-of-the-art surgical procedures such as anatomic ACL reconstruction, all-inside meniscal repair, arthroscopic double-row rotator cuff repair, anatomic labral repair for shoulder dislocations, anatomic and reverse total shoulder replacement, arthroscopic hip labral repair, and management of femoroacetabular impingement of the hip.
Dr. Brown chose to pursue a clinical practice in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine, permitting him to focus entirely on the care of his patients. He views the doctor-patient relationship as a partnership with the combined goal of returning patients to their desired level of activity. He reserves surgical intervention as a last resort for those patients who fail conservative management or in whom non-operative management is not an appropriate option. He considers patient education regarding their injuries a top priority.
Dr. Brown grew up playing soccer and cricket, and was an avid surfer and competitive swimmer. He has completed several marathons and continues to enjoy cycling, weight training, and yoga. As an athlete he understands the importance of maintaining a healthy and functional musculoskeletal system.
Dr. Brown lives in Westchester, NY, with his wife, two children, and their dog, Cosmo.
