About Dr. Brown
Haydée C. Brown, MD is a nationally recognized orthopaedic surgeon and social justice advocate delivering world-class musculoskeletal care focused on minimally invasive treatments that help patients quickly get back to doing what they love. Fluent in Spanish and English, Dr. Brown has cared for many prominent athletes, dancers, Broadway performers and others from all walks of life and professions.
One of very few Afro-Latina professionals in her field, Dr. Brown promotes equality, diversity, education and inclusion in healthcare through her work, volunteerism, speaking engagements, corporate partnerships and mentoring. In 2020, she volunteered in a South Bronx Emergency Room, assisting Covid-19 patients. In the same year, she founded Black Women Orthopaedic Surgeons, an organization dedicated to empowering Black women in the field.
A native Harlemite and former dancer who performed in Alvin Ailey’s “Memoria” with AAADT, Dr. Brown was inspired by her own injury and recovery to enter orthopaedics.
She is a graduate of Wellesley College and the NYU School of Medicine. Dr. Brown completed residency and fellowship training at the Hospital for Special Surgery, as well as advanced training in foot and ankle surgery. She currently serves as Associate Clinical Professor in Orthopaedic Surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital/Icahn Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
Proud mom to a young son, Dr. Brown resides in Harlem. When she’s not caring for patients or working to make the world a better place, she enjoys dancing, her Peloton+, family time, and running.
In Summer 2021, Dr. Brown became Director of Orthopaedic Surgery Service at New York Health and Hospitals – Harlem Hospital.
