Dr. Brooks' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Brooks "Becoming an orthopedic surgeon has been my lifelong dream because it allows me to combine my two passions, medicine and sports. Having been involved in sports all of my life has given me a unique perspective on the impact injuries can have on anyone at any age. Athletic injuries often lead to chronic problems, including chronic pain and the development of arthritis. I specialize in returning these individuals to their active lifestyle, whether it involves ligament reconstruction or joint replacement. The advances in orthopedic surgery over the past 50 years have led to highly successful procedures which have dramatically improved patients' lives. Some of the procedures I perform include total and partial knee replacement, hip replacement, ACL reconstruction, knee arthroscopy, cartilage transfer and restoration and realignment procedures. I practice at NorthBay Healthcare because the administration has demonstrated that they are truly interested in developing one of the most comprehensive and successful orthopedic programs in Northern California. The Joint Replacement Program at VacaValley Hospital in Vacaville is just one example of a successful program. It is very popular with my patients and has a very knowledgeable staff who are focused on their patients' recovery. The advice I give my patients is to get and stay as healthy as you can. Eat a healthy diet and exercise often. Just about everyone can and should get involved in some kind of physical activity, whether walking, bike riding, dancing or skiing. If joint pain is keeping you from exercise, it's time to visit an orthopedic surgeon. Remember: A body in motion, stays in motion."

Dr Brooks recently performed total left knee. replacement successfully. He operated on my right knee 18 months ago and all went well.

Dr. Brooks was great from start to finish. He answered all my questions pertain to my partial knee replacement. My quality of life has shot through the roof since I had my procedure. I strongly recommend him for any knee surgery

Very personable. Willing to take a conservative approach to avoid surgery if possible. Outpatient & surgical experience were both great!
