Dr. Gabriel D. Brown was born in Cape Town, South Africa. Dr. Brown immigrated to the United States in 1989 and settled with his family in Mamaroneck, NY. He graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology.
Dr. Brown spent two years performing research in the Orthopedic Surgery Department at Columbia University. His research in orthopedics confirmed his desire to attend medical school and to pursue a career in orthopedic surgery.
Dr. Brown attended a Master’s Program in Medical Sciences at MCP Hahnemann School of Medicine (now Drexel University). After completing his first two years of medical school at MCP Hahnemann, he transferred to the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
He completed his residency in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery 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, and North Bergen High School, NJ.
Following his five years of intensive training in orthopedic surgery and continued interest in athletics, Dr. Brown chose to pursue an additional year of specialized training in the operative and non-operative management of sports medicine injuries. He completed his fellowship in Sports Medicine at Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic, specializing in the treatment of professional, elite and recreational athletes playing for USC Football, LA Lakers, LA Sparks, LA Dodgers, LA Kings, Anaheim Angels, and Anaheim Ducks. Dr. Brown was also head team physician for Loyola Marymount University Men’s and Women’s Soccer and Basketball.
While at Kerlan-Jobe, Dr. Brown trained in state-of-the-art surgical procedures such as anatomic ACL reconstructions, all-inside meniscal repairs, all-arthroscopic double-row rotator cuff repairs, arthroscopic rotator cuff augmentation procedures, anatomic labral reconstructions for shoulder dislocations, anatomic and reverse total shoulder replacements, arthroscopic hip labral repair and management of femoroacetabular impingement of the hip.
Dr. Brown chose to pursue a purely 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. As a child, he was an avid soccer and cricket player and also enjoyed surfing, running and competitive swimming. As an athlete himself, Dr. Brown understands the importance of maintaining a healthy and functional musculoskeletal system.
Dr. Brown lives in Westchester, NY, with his wife, two young daughters, and their dog, Cosmo. He enjoys spending time with his family, exercising, playing guitar, reading and fishing.
