Mr James Brown read Medicine at Bristol, qualifying in 1996. His formal surgical training started with six months at the prestigious Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford, continuing with the All-Wales training program in trauma and orthopaedics. He gained significant trauma experience at the busy centres of Cardiff and Swansea. He developed an interest in surgery in developing countries during a six month attachment to an orthopaedic unit in the Transkei, South Africa.
After award of the certificate of completion of specialist training, Mr Brown undertook a one-year Fellowship in foot and ankle surgery at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital, finishing in December 2011. He followed this with a further four month Fellowship in foot and ankle surgery at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, Middlesex. This is a tertiary referral centre for complex cases.

He currently undertakes a high volume of elective foot and ankle cases, including ankle arthroscopy, joint fusions, joint injections, tendon reconstructions and forefoot problems.
