Having witnessed Dr. Brooks do many surgeries in the OR first hand I can honestly say he is one the best. Not only that but he genuinely cares for his patients. He does amazing work and I would recommend him to anyone, the world would be a much better place if there were more Docs like him.

Dr. Brooks is attentive, knowledgeable, and thorough. He put my daughter at ease in her initial exam and we always felt comfortable with his abilities as a surgeon. His office staff and surgical staff are professional and took excellent care of our daughter at a vulnerable time for her. We were especially impressed with Dr. Brooks' knowledge of current techniques and his apparent diligence to continue learning about his craft. We recommend fully Dr. Brooks and his staff for orthopedic care.

I went to Dr. Brooks at Utmb orthopedic after having an unsuccessful surgery on my shoulder by another Dr. Doctor Brooks was very caring and listened to me about the problems I was having like no other Dr. had done. He diagnosed my problem and did a second surgery much more extensive than the first and did a miraculous job . I would recommend him 100 % he is caring and is a master at what he does.

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
