Hand and Wrist Surgeon

Dr. Jean-Paul Brutus was born in Belgium and studied plastic surgery first in Brussels, then in Montreal. He continued his training with a fellowship in upper extremity surgery at Upstate Medical University, in Syracuse, New York, and a second research fellowship in biomechanics of the wrist at the Institute for Human Performance in Syracuse.

In 2005, Dr. Brutus moved to Montreal and started an academic practice in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, as well as doing hand surgery at Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) and at Cité-de-la-Santé hospital in Laval. Numerous scientific works have earned him awards for clinical excellence and dedication to teaching.

Over time, Dr. Brutus developed and popularized several minimally invasive surgical techniques. He also performed several ground-breaking procedures, including the first endoscopic decompression of trigger finger in Canada. In 2010, Dr. Brutus chose to continue his practice in the private sector, where he worked with several clinics before co-founding Exception MD, a medical clinic dedicated to treatment of the upper and lower limbs.

Today, Dr. Brutus is a leader in the field of hand and wrist surgery in Canada. He is regularly invited to be a guest speaker at conferences. He has written several books on medical disorders involving the hands, and has published more than 30 articles in scientific and medical journals. He is also the author of “Tendre la Main”, a art book of photographs celebrating the noble role of the hands in the lives of famous local philanthropists. The media turn to him regularly to speak on topics in his areas of expertise.
