Dr Brokaw has followed me since 2010. I shattered my tibia plateau while on vacation in FL. Came home and FINALLY connected with him! ( the delay was in finding the right dr). He has seen me through a TKR and then a femur fx and repair. Nobody better!!

I was involved in an auto collision back in 1996. I was lifelined to Methodist Hospital to their Trauma Department . My injuries were traumatic and thanks to his God given talent as a surgeon I survived and am able to walk despite all the odds against me.
