Meet Dr. Christopher Brown

Philosophy of Care

Whether you are an elite athlete, a weekend warrior, or someone looking to stay active, Dr. Brown desires to know your goals and help you remain active, fit, and competitive. He accomplishes this through personalized attention to each step of the healing process, including: education, decision making, non-operative care, surgical care, and the post-operative recovery process such that time away from the things you love to do is kept at a minimum.

Personal Interests

He currently lives in Canandaigua with his wife and two children. He enjoys staying active, hunting, fishing, and giving his community state-of-the-art innovative orthopedic care. If not outdoors or at one of his kids’ games, he can be found on the sidelines of a local high school or college sporting event providing physician coverage and helping local athletes stay in the game.


Dr. Christopher Brown is a fellowship trained Orthopedic Surgeon who serves as the Medical Director for Rochester Regional Health Sports Medicine. He is board certified in general orthopedics and sports medicine.

His orthopedic training at Duke University Medical Center allows him to treat a variety of musculoskeletal injuries including: fractures, hand, wrist, and elbow conditions. His additional sub-specialty training in sports medicine at Stanford Medical Center provides him with unique expertise in complex shoulder and knee conditions such as ACL tears, shoulder dislocations and labral tears, rotator cuff problems, meniscus tears, and cartilage damage. He is an innovative surgeon who uses the most up-to-date research and surgical techniques to better his patients.

During his time at Duke and Stanford, Dr. Brown worked with elite athletes when he provided team physician coverage for the National Football League’s San Francisco 49ers, as well as the NCAA Division I Stanford Cardinal and Duke Blue Devils. He has helped grow sports medicine and athletic training services in the Finger Lakes and Rochester area to help keep our kids safe, healthy, and on the field through a team approach.
