Mr Brew studied Medicine at the University of St Andrews where he obtained a degree of Bachelor of Medical Science before going onto to complete his medical undergraduate studies at the University of Manchester.

Osteoarthritis is a chronic debilitating degenerative condition that commonly affects the hip and knee and is the most common reason for undergoing a hip or knee joint replacement. This work helped to increase our understanding of the underlying cause of osteoarthritis and has been published in internationally renowned medical journals and has been presented at international academic meetings.
Mr Brew was awarded a Doctorate of Medicine for this work in 2005 by the University of Manchester.

Mr Brew is a co-founding member of the Yorkshire Hip and Knee Group. YHKG is the only dedicated group of joint replacement surgeons in West Yorkshire.
The YHKG work together to ensure the highest standards of care are received by their patients from the very start of their treatment journey right through to their surgery and post-operative rehabilitation needs.
There is always someone there to listen and offer help if needed.
All x-rays are reviewed at the monthly Joint Replacement Meeting, providing an excellent opportunity for peer review of cases and time for discussion of any complex cases in order for detailed pre-operative plans to be made and when necessary joint operating to be arranged.
We strive for the very best possible outcome.
This ensures that the very highest standards of Joint Replacement Surgery are continually being met by Mr Brew and his colleagues.
