Angela Freehill MDOrthopaedic Surgery
Dr. Angela Freehill (or Mrs. Brown at the grade school) is a woman of many hats. She is an orthopedic surgeon, a wife, a mother to three beautiful girls, a wine and cheese connoisseur, a co-author of “The Chronicles of Women in White Coats”, and a breast cancer survivor. She is passionate about writing and watching movies on the couch with a giant bucket of popcorn. She loves to travel and try new places and new foods.
Dr. Freehill did her undergraduate years at Georgetown University where she completed a double major in government and psychology. She took an introduction to biology course during her senior year inspiring her to pursue medicine the summer after she graduated. She worked by day at Georgetown University Hospital as a secretary for the Department of Neurology, and went to school at night to get her pre-med requirements. She was admitted to Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis off the wait-list and subsequently moved to St. Louis, MO. She loved medical school and thrived in her third and fourth years, winning the Jesse Ternberg award as a senior which was awarded to a promising young woman entering a career in surgery.
Dr. Freehill completed her orthopedic residency at the prestigious Washington University in 2003 and then went on to do an orthopedic sports fellowship at Pennsylvania Hospital and University of Pennsylvania. She landed in Mt. Vernon, IL, after a short stint at the Marshfield Clinic in Wisconsin. She currently is on staff at Good Samaritan Hospital in Mt. Vernon, IL, and is a partner at the Orthopedic Center of Southern Illinois where she runs a general orthopedic practice with a focus on sports-related injuries and the aging knee. She just passed her orthopedic boards for the second time and is relieved not to have to do that for 10 more years.
She lives and practices in Southern Illinois with her husband, three daughters and an English bulldog named Humphrey Bogart Brown. Dr. Freehill is growing out her hair after chemotherapy and is grateful for the good hair days when they happen.
