Dr. Brown is the founder and co-course director of the Toronto Breast Surgery Symposium, Canada’s largest annual medical symposium of its kind. In 2011, Dr. Brown also founded Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day, an annual day to acknowledge the need for education, access and awareness for breast reconstruction following the treatment of breast cancer. BRA Day is now recognized in over twenty-five countries worldwide.
As Dr. Brown’s practice in breast surgery evolved over the years, he has become a referral site for women seeking secondary or revision breast surgery. Today, almost half of his breast surgery practice is dedicated to assisting these patients and he has been instrumental in developing new approaches and techniques for breast revision surgery.
Dr. Brown is a Professor of Surgery in the Department of Surgery at the University of Toronto. He recently completed a ten-year term as Residency Program Director for the Division of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery. He has published numerous articles in the field of plastic surgery and is well recognized on both a national and international level.
In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Brown contributes regularly to the plastic surgery community through his involvement in various societies, invited lectures and scientific publications. Here are some of Dr. Brown’s contributions related to secondary or revision breast surgery:
