Dr. Brook Adams, MD
Greetings from Dr. Brook Adams MD After growing up in the DFW metroplex and completing medical school in Houston, I continued on with Orthopaedic Residency training at the University of New Mexico. This was then followed by additional fellowship training in sports medicine in Jackson, Tn to help me treat many conditions conservatively or with minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery ranging from Rotator Cuff Repair to ACL Reconstruction. My current practice is now in Granbury, Tx with a satellite clinic location in Stephenville, as well as caring for patients in Glen Rose. Watch for me on the sidelines assisting with Granbury High School sports coverage throughout the year at home and away games. I am also well equipped to treat arthritic conditions of the shoulder, hip and knee. There are multiple treatment alternatives to help alleviate symptoms of arthritis to delay the need for joint replacement. When those options are exhausted, we use various tools to better your results such as use of MRI based custom cutting jigs for the best chance of long term success with your Knee Replacement. A minimally invasive quadriceps sparing approach is also used to help get you back to your daily activities faster. Direct Anterior or Anterolateral approaches of total hip arthroplasty are surgical options in my practice for arthritis of the hip. Anatomic and Reverse shoulder replacements are also performed. Trauma call is regularly taken at Lake Granbury Medical Center should you or someone you know have an unfortunate accident. As of July 2014, I am Board Certified in Orthopaedic Surgery by the ABOS. I am also an active AAOS fellow and a current member of AOSSM. My lovely wife, two daughters and I (as well as our dog Charlie) live locally where we enjoy the Granbury lifestyle. I enjoy golf, tennis and hockey. We also enjoy skiing and wakesurfing on the lake during the warmer months and snow skiing in winter.

Patient Comments (46)
in Granbury TX |
My experience with Dr Brook Adams as my Orthopedic Surgeon for my knee replacement surgery was outstanding from start to finish. His whole staff is pleasant, professional and very efficient. I would highly recommend Dr Brook Adams.
in Granbury, Tx |
Doc Adams has been the best in treating my broken arm. Our introduction was in the emergency room and Doc Adams stayed that evening and operated on my broken humerous. It was not easy because of how it broke (kinda splintered) thus lots of extra care in getting the break cleaned out. He has been right there for me each time I've needed him or had a question.I would highly recommend him and his staff for any broken bones he's responsible for. Great people skills and a great team around him. KyleB
Granbury, TX |
Excellent surgeon and staff. Dr. Adams is extremely knowledgeable and willing to spend the time with his patients to figure out their goals and treatments options. I highly recommend him and will not be going anywhere else in the future for my orthopaedic needs!
in Weatherford, TX |
Very pleasant staff including radiology. Explained problem well. Does not push extra steps such as MRI or surgery before trying conservative steps first. Seems to be genuinely concerned about excessive costs.
in Bluff Dale, TX |
Dr. Adams replaced my Rt. hip joint using the direct anterior method & a Hanna operating table on 6/12/17. I was in the hospital overnight & went home the day following surgery. My leg was minimally swollen & bruised after surgery. I'm 2 weeks post-op & am able to get around with a cane & only occasionally with a walker. Dr. Adams explained everything thoroughly and answered all my questions. His staff is very knowledgeable & friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Adams.
in Granbury, TX |
I had Left Open Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery! Dr. Adams did an outstandingly good job of explaining the surgical procedure before my surgery! He has also provided Excellent post op care!! He even returned my wife's phone call on a Sunday afternoon!! I am doing well 6 weeks after surgery, and an now able to start therapy! When my wife decides to have her knee replacement, Dr. Adams will be her surgeon of choice.
in Granbury, TX |
I had a very positive experience beginning with the very first person I spoke with, The entire staff was efficient and friendly and the doctor was very personable and gentle, and fixed me right up with immediate care and an excellent treatment plan for the future. I selected him because I observed him give excellent care to my best friend when he treated her in the ER at LGMC. I will return to him for my are and will recommend him to my friends and family.
in Granbury, TX |
Dr. Adams has a good, comforting personality, and made me feel completely at ease when explaining my injury. Being an athlete, he understood my goal to be back to normal as soon as possible.
in Granbury, TX |
I fell and broke my wrist and Dr. Adams office got me in to see the doctor right away. Dr. Adams and his staff are very friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and kind. You could not ask for better people to be taking care of you in your moment of crisis. I love everyone there. I am well on my way to recovery thanks to all the wonderful people at Dr. Adams office. I would definitely recommend Dr. Adams and his staff.
in Iredell, Texas |
Dr. Adams in very easy to talk to and very clear in his explanations. Anytime I have a question, he does an outstanding job of explaining it and making it very clear for me. He is genuine in his approach and truly listens to my questions and concerns. He is realistic with the restrictions that he gives me due to my injuries and I could not be more satisfied with every visit I make to his office.
Lafayette, LA |
Easy to work with. Great result.
Granbury, TX |
Dr. Adams is conservative in treatment. He gives you the options necessary to decide if and when to have surgery.
in Glen Rose, Texas |
Wonderful experience. Everyone was very kind and professional. Would definitely recommend
in Glen Rose, Texas |
He was really nice, and very fair to me as a cash customer. He really seemed concerned and wanted to help me.
in Glen Rose, Texas |
I have been treated by Dr Adams three times. There was minimum waiting time and absolute caring by his entire staff. Dr Adams is outstanding and very friendly as he conveys knowledge and information in a very conversational manner. After my first treatment by Dr. Adams, I recommended him to my neighbor, a Vietnam buddy I have known for 49 years. My buddy was also very very happy with Dr. Adams.
in Granbury, TX |
My experience was very positive! It was minor surgery on my hand for "trigger thumb". He explained everything in detail, the surgery was without complications and my thumb is in good shape now. We were both pleased. Would go back again.
Stephenville, TX |
Dr. Adams was the on-call orthopedist when our son came to the Granbury ER with a broken arm, and I'm so glad because he was calming, reassuring, and fantastic with our follow-ups.
in Granbury, TX |
Excellent doctor, spends the amount of time needed to discuss several options. I heard him speak at a hospital luncheon (for mostly seniors) and heard him say he will try all options before surgery and I loved that. Staff is wonderful also.
Granbury, TX |
Extremely knowledgeably, personable and a good listener. Was very patient with all my questions and offered several options for treatment. Best Doctor I have ever seen! Wish he could be my Primary Care Physican.
in Granbury, TX |
I would recommend anyone to Dr. Adams. Great guy great Dr. and wonderful staff. scheduling appts was easy. wait time was minimal I have complete trust in Dr Adams He explains everything thoroughly He listens to you and spends adequate amount of time with you
in Glen Rose, TX |
My experience with Dr. Adams started with my husband's broken leg. While on an appointment for my husband he looked at my trigger thumb and setup an appointment for me. I further needed another procedure on my foot which needed to be done by my podiatrist. Both surgeons coordinated to make it happen at the same time. I couldn't ask for Dr. Adams and his staff to have been more flexible and helpful.
in Granbury, TX |
I have been seeing Dr. Adams for a while and have been extremely happy with his treatments. In August of last year he performed a Knee Replacement on my left knee, with great results! Physical therapy began last Wed. for bursitis in my left hip (an ongoing problem for some time). During my first session my legs were checked for any difference in length, my right leg was shorter and so a heel pad was placed in my shoe. I have had remarkable results with that, the pain has subsided greatly!
in Granbury, TX |
He seems to reply care about his clients. IF I were to break something else I will go back to him and get it fixed.
in Granbury, TX |
When you walk with a boot on your foot, many people ask, “WHAT HAPPENED?” & that gives me a chance to talk about Dr. Adams & to recommend him. He performed a surgery on my foot & it healed well. HIs office is very nice & his staff is always happy & friendly. DR. Adams is easy to talk to & to understand. He takes the time to explain everything & answer every question. It's a bonus that you can walk out of radiology & straight into his office. He is A+.
Ft Worth, TX |
I was very pleased with my first visit. Dr. Adams was professional and thorough in explaining my situation. I left with all my questions answered and am planning on using him for future treatment.
Very good explanation of condition and treatment options in understandable language and manner. Appreciate the friendliness and attentiveness of Dr.Adams and staff.
in Walnut Springs, Texas |
I can not say enough wonderful things about Dr. Adams and his amazing staff! I displaced my ankle and broke not one but two bones in it as well. His office staff worked me into his busy schedule in only a day or two after the accident. He then quickly scheduled surgery to reduce the risk of further injury. The surgical process went off without a hitch and the several months of follow-up have resulted in an excellent recovery. I highly recommend him for all of your orthopedic needs!!
in Granbury, TX |
Dr. Adams presents himself in a very calm and professional manner. Introduces himself as "Brook Adams", not "Doctor". He addresses your condition in layman terms and is easy to understand. There is no pressure to decide on a solution. He lets you make the decisions as to the how and when. He leaves one with the impression that he is confident he can accomplish the task and make you better.
in Granbury, TX |
I would recommend Dr. Adams to family and friends. He was excellent and very professional. Thank you Dr. Adams. Gayle Damron.
in Granbury, TX |
I have no complaints about the care given by Dr. Adams. He is a very caring doctor with his patients welfare always in mind. My surgery was for a shoulder replacement. He made sure that I had support services at home until I was able to drive to a rehab facility.
after an accident in Arizona we rushed home to find an orthopedic surgeon, and Dr Adams was recommended by a local medical professional who had been a surgical patient of Dr Adams. He immediately worked me into his busy schedule and we have been delighted with his professionalism and care, His staff is courteous and caring, Highly give him a 5 star!

Thorough exam osteoarthritis in knee and treatment plan implemented
in Granbury, Tx |
Dr. Adams great when I dislocated my patella. He didn't immediately jump to having surgery on it, he waited to see how it heeled on its own. His office has been wonderful every time that I have called or come in. I would 100% recommend Dr. Adams!
in Granbury, TX |
I broke my wrist & am a senior citizen. He was very compassionate, asking questions about my lifestyle & giving me a choice in my treatment. I live a very active lifestyle & work with my hands a lot. Ater listening to the type of things I do with my hands, he said that surgery would make the healing process stronger. He left the choice to me. I chose surgery and feel he did an excellent job. In follow up appointments he is concerned about how I feel about my healing process. He's the best!
in Cresson, TX |
Excellent surgeon, good listener, friendly staff. Was referred to Dr. Adams for my knee surgery and could not be happier. Initial appointment to consultation to surgery and follow up all handled quickly and smoothly. He demonstrates a genuine interest in my care and recovery.
in Stephenville, TX |
Dr. Adams discussed different options with me, I chose to have my knee scoped. I couldn't be more pleased with my results. Two weeks postoperative my knee feels great and no more pain I experienced before surgery. Dr. Adams, office staff and surgical staff were professional and friendly and made for a successful experience start to finish.
in Stephenville Tx |
Need an orthopedic doctor? I would highly recommend Dr. Brook Adams. I couldn't have chosen a more caring orthopedic doctor. When I decided to see Dr. Adams for a possible total knee replacement, he made me feel at ease when we discussed my options, and I decided to proceed with the total knee replacement. I knew I was in good hands after my first visit, his confidence and expertise was evident. I wasn't just a another patient to him, he truly wanted to help me get my life back.
in Stephenville tx |
Had bi laderal knee replacement in Dec 2016, excellent care from Dr Adams and all his staff. Highly recommended! Knees are great now. So glad to find Dr Adams. So excited to be able to do stuff with my grandkids. Thank you last few years years have been rough doing simple task.
in Cleburne, TX |
Staff was extremely professional and very polite. Dr. Adams is very informative and took time to answer all my questions and made my husband and I feel very comfortable.
in Granbury, TX |
Swelling in my knee prompted me to schedule an appointment with Dr. Adams, who could see me the same day during a holiday period. With a vacation coming up within a week, this was important! Even better, Dr. Adams took the time to discuss my options and his recommendations, and listen to my concerns. I appreciate a doctor who doesn't push tests, medications, or treatments that are expensive and/or unnecessary. If I ever need orthopedic services again, I will be calling Dr. Brook Adams first.
in Granbury, TX |
I had developed a cyst on the index finger of my right hand, directly opposing my thumb. Due to it's location, normal day-to-day use of my hand irritated the cyst and local skin to frequent discomfort. Dr Adams examined the anomaly, advised me of the dangers and options and helped me arrived at the best approach to the issue. The surgery was scheduled and conducted. I was surprised at the great care, concern and professionalism Dr. Adams and his staff exercised for a great outcome.
in Granbury,Tx. |
Dr. Adams was recommended and I could not be happier. He is very thorough and very personable. I have another surgery scheduled and would recommend him to anyone. I trust him to make the right decisions that are beneficial for me. He also has a very friendly and knowledgeable staff thats ready to help with your needs and answer the questions you may have.
in Granbury, TX |
he is very knowable about injury & treatment . I was treated with great respect &has made me I AM WITH THE CORRECT DR.
in Glen Rose, Texas |
Dr Adams has been a pleasant surprise for both myself and my wife. He has been very efficient and on time with every step of my medical issue. His Office Staff been very good also. I must say he and his office have set a very high standard for customer service and patient care!
in Granbury, TX |
Overall great talented man. I had ACL reconstion surgery with him at the beginning of this year and I'm an active sports player he did such a great job. I'm back playing with no problems, my knee feels great. I recommend all sports players to him.
Stephenville, TX |
Doctor Adams is okay. He is arrogent though doesnt really listen to you. You ask him a question and dont really get an answer. His surgery tech is a jerk and even more arrogant than Doctor Adams. I would not advise him to others.
If this review is real, I am sorry that you had a bad experience. I pride myself on listening to and trying to answer patients' concerns and questions. My staff demands the same from themselves. We try our best to provide compassionate care of the highest quality to all patients.
