    About

    After graduating from the University of Glasgow in 1997, Mr Iain Brown went on to complete his medical training across Scotland, working in Glasgow, Ayrshire, London and Edinburgh. In addition to his orthopaedic training, Mr Brown has worked alongside plastic surgeons at the Royal London and St Barts, as well as in an Accident & Emergency unit in Gold Coast Hospitals in Australia.

    Mr Brown has completed a fellowship in trauma and has extensive knowledge in the field of shoulder reconstruction. Not only this, he has excellent training in hand, wrist and elbow surgery. Mr Brown's passion for medical care has not wavered and he remains passionate about quality and care improvements for patients and is now a team member of the internationally renowned Trauma Unit at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

    Beyond his clinical exploits, he remains heavily involved in research and this involvement culminated in him winning the Tenovus funding grant for molecular research into frozen shoulders.

    In his personal time, Mr Brown performs as a Tenor with Opera East Lothian and is known to pull off quite the performance when requested to by his two young daughters.

    I regret missing my last scheduled appointment, my apologies. The wrist has settled down remarkably well since I last saw you earlier in the year and I am getting back to somewhere near normal. I would like to take this opportunity to extend my grateful thanks and appreciation to you and all your team for your skill, care and expertise. Thanks!
