He was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 1991 (FRCS Ed), after which he undertook a period of orthopaedic research at Nottingham University. This research involved impact biomechanics as applied to aircraft passenger safety. It culminated in the submission of his doctoral thesis and the award of a DM.

Professor Brownson continued his orthopaedic training in Nottingham, and completed his training as the Shoulder Fellow in the Nottingham Shoulder and Elbow Unit.

In 1998 Professor Brownson was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Liverpool where he was instrumental in establishing the Liverpool Upper Limb Unit as a centre of excellence for shoulder and elbow surgery.
