Douglas Brown, MD

Dr. Brown is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery. He is the senior founding partner of OA, established in 1982.

“I feel very fortunate to have practiced at OA for more than 30 years. OA’s vision from the outset has been to provide high quality comprehensive orthopaedic care in a setting that promotes integration and efficiency. Now, in an environment where high quality and low cost are paramount, OA’s model remains key – large enough to be broad and comprehensive and efficient, yet small enough to be personal and nimble and innovative.”
