"I work with patients to come up with a treatment plan that is tailored to their individual needs," Dr. Brown said. "Depending on the patient and their condition, the treatment can be surgical or nonsurgical."
Dr. Brown offers joint replacements to patients who have not experienced sufficient symptom relief from lifestyle modifications, medications and physical therapy.
Dr. Brown said techniques and devices are improving outcomes for joint replacements. For example, Dr. Brown offers hip replacements using an anterior (from the front) approach that is less damaging to muscles and tendons.
"Hip and knee replacements last 20 to 25 years and help patients resume active lifestyles with significantly less pain," Dr. Brown said.
Dr. Brown earned his medical degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He completed a residency in orthopaedic surgery at Rush University Medical Center and a fellowship in hip and knee replacements at Anderson Orthopaedic Clinic in Alexandria, VA.
Dr. Brown is an assistant professor in the department of orthopaedic surgery of Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.
