Training & background:

Mr Brown is a Consultant General Surgeon at the Northern General Hospital, with a busy private practice at Claremont.

He learnt colonoscopy utilising Japanese techniques of minimal discomfort over 15 years ago and is an accredited bowel cancer screener, also involved in assessing consultants who are attempting to meet these colonoscopy standards.

He established Sheffield as a leading regional centre for treatment of faecal incontinence and constipation introducing many new techniques including scaral nerve stimulation, laparoscopic ventral rectopexy, STARR, stapled haemorrhoidectomy, tibial neuromodulation, and repair for obstetric injury.

Mr Brown has an interest in inflammatory bowel disease, running joint clinics and ward rounds with gastroenterologists regularly offering minimal access surgery for Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis.  He carries out pouch procedures avoiding the need for a stoma.

He carries out bowel cancer procedures utilising laparoscopic techniques allowing enhanced recovery and rapid return to normal activities.

He also offers minimal access and laparoscopic hernia procedures.  For inguinal hernia operations, he follows the principles of the British Hernia Centre, offering small incision local anaesthetic surgery allowing safe and effective repair with rapid discharge and recovery.

Mr Brown also carries out the latest procedures for anal fissure and fistula including anal fistula plugs, Botox injections, pilonidal surgery, advancement flaps and pruritis ani surgery, all with same day discharge.
