Bob Brown, M.D. grew up in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California. After graduating from high school in Van Nuys, California, he enlisted in the United States Air Force as a means to further his education. While stationed at Nellis Air Force Base in North Las Vegas, Dr. Brown found his calling to work in the healthcare field while working as a dental technician. He was able to complete two years of his undergraduate studies during his three years at Nellis AFB, and after recognition by his co-workers was released early from the Air Force to further his college education. Dr. Brown completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a degree in Chemistry with high distinction. He realized his desire to become a physician and graduated from the University of Nevada School of Medicine with his Medical Doctor (M.D.) degree.
He then went to Houston to further his education at the world renowned Texas Medical center at the University of Texas, at Houston Medical School. During his internship and residency training Dr. Brown trained at Hermann Hospital, Texas Heart Institute, Texas Children’s Hospital, and the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Early in his residency training in Houston, Dr. P Prithri Raj joined the faculty and founded the University Center for Pain Management. This was one of first pain fellowship programs in the country, and led by Dr. Raj who was one of early pioneers in the field of pain medicine. Dr. Brown completed his residency and came to Denver to complete a Pediatric Anesthesia fellowship, before returning to Houston where he completed his Pain Medicine fellowship under the expertise of Dr. Raj.
After completing his fellowship Dr. Brown stayed on as a faculty member at the University of Texas University Center for Pain Management. He soon moved to Colorado and joined the University of Colorado to establish a Pain Clinic which continues to operate to this day. After a few years he left the University of Colorado to establish a pain clinic in the suburbs of western Denver, where he continues to practice today.
When he is not at the office he spends time with his wife and 3 children. His newest addition, Lilly, joined the Brown family after they travelled to China this past December, to bring the beautiful 3 year old home to grow up in Colorado with her two older brothers. They all enjoy all that the Colorado lifestyle provides–snowskiing, biking, hiking, and camping.
Always learning, Dr. Brown recently completed a 46 hour comprehensive review of the field of pain medicine in preparation for continued board certification. He has additional training in vertebroplasty, radiofrequency nerve ablation, percutaneous diskectomy, dorsal column stimulator placement, intrathecal pump implantation, ultrasound guided nerve blocks, and minimally invasive lumbar decompression to provide his patients with the most advanced treatment options available in pain management.
