Dr. Christopher Brown understands the importance of education, for both himself and future physicians. By teaching gross anatomy at the Georgetown University School of Medicine for the past two decades, he has been able to keep abreast of the latest developments in the orthopedic surgery field, while at the same time teaching medical students about the structure of the human body and its parts. Board certified in orthopedic surgery, Dr. Brown brings this same passion for education to our patients at Fauquier Health. Before any decisions are made, Dr. Brown explains to each patient and family the available treatment options, surgical techniques, pain medications, rehabilitation methods, expected recovery times and follow-up care associated with each orthopedic procedure.
