Success Stories

You are amazing.

Doc Brown,

You are amazing. Thank you.

After your surgery I went on to break the record for goals at West Valley Community College, then transferred to play D1 at Cal Poly SLO where I unfortunately tore my ACL. Now going on Physical Therapy School. Hopefully through the military.

Thanks for everything.


The whole experience was a good one.

Dear Dr. Brown,

It’s been about 7 weeks since the surgery and I wanted to give you an update.

I started going to the gym 4 weeks post surgery and haven’t had any pain. My incision has healed and the parts you sutured together under the skin seem to be healing up as well.

Anyway, I wanted to say thank you for the consultation, surgery, and phone calls afterward. The whole experience was a good one. In particular, I wanted to thank you for the following:

  2. Being able to talk to you and get information when I was first researching my options was very important to me.
  3. Brenda was very nice and quick to respond to questions I had.

Without the surgery my soccer days would be over.

Hello Dr. Brown,

I just want to thank you for your expertise and skill in the sports hernia field. I had surgery back on Aug 7th 2017.

I am 49 yrs old and two weeks ago I played in a soccer tournament which consisted of five games in three days. The only parts of my body that didn’t hurt were my abdomen and groin. I did do a lot of rehab mobility and strength exercises, but without the surgery my soccer days would be over.      

Thank You,


A rare doctor who has a great mind and heart.
