Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Brooks "I believe that effective communication, combined with caring and compassion, provide the foundation for a successful physician-patient partnership. My goal is to help patients understand their orthopedic problem, provide them with appropriate conservative and surgical treatment options, and empower them with the ability to make the treatment decision that is best for them. Each patient is a unique individual and deserves an individualized treatment approach."

Dr Brooks is a great surgeon. I had bilateral hip replacement done on July 7, 2016. Today it makes a month and I am walking a little with a cane only. The pain on the hips is gone. I would recommend Dr Brooks to anyone. He is amazing. Thank you Dr. I'm so happy with the results. P. Flores
