Dr. Stephen C. Brown Read Testimonials
Dr. Stephen C. Brown is the founder of Briarwood Cosmetic Surgical Centre. A newspaper once described Dr. Brown as one of "Oakville's most endeared plastic surgeons" because of his gentle demeanour, compassion and honest approach to every patient's concerns. What sets Dr. Brown apart is the time and care he gives to each patient. He views plastic surgery as a partnership between himself and his patients.
Prior to surgery, he spends time with each patient, reviewing all the options and working out the most reasonable and realistic way to proceed.
Dr. Brown graduated from the Schulich School of Medicine at University of Western Ontario. He had a rotating internship at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto which enabled him to gain experience in several medical specialities — one being plastic surgery. Because of the innovation that was required to effectively and safely address the needs of patients, whether they were reconstructive or aesthetic, plastic surgery became his favourite specialty. Pursuing this, Dr. Brown attended plastic surgery resident training, once again at the University of Western Ontario, and received his certification and fellowship from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in Plastic Surgery in 1987. In addition, Dr. Brown had an additional year of training in complex Hand Surgery at the Sunnybrook Health Services Center and the Workers Safety & Insurance Board of Ontario.
Dr. Brown has over 25 years of experience as a plastic surgeon and has a natural flair for achieving beautiful and natural-looking results, so much so that his patients return time and time again to address their other aesthetic concerns. In addition to serving as an Expert Witness for the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, he has also been recognized by the world-renowned Department of Medicine at McMaster University in Hamilton, invited to teach advanced surgical techniques to budding plastic surgeons in their residency training programme.
Dr. Brown maintains active staff privileges with the Oakville site of Halton Healthcare Services (formerly known as Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital), Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital in Burlington, the Trillium and Credit Valley Hospitals in Mississauga, and the Georgetown and Milton locations of Halton Healthcare Services.
To express his appreciation to the community of Oakville, Dr. Brown and Briarwood Cosmetic Sugical Centre routinely support numerous local service groups and charities.
