Performed Surgery on my Achilles Tendon, I fell down on a Saturday night and re ruptured it ( my fault ). Dr Westbrook dropped everything he was doing on a Sunday and operated on me again. He is the best in town and an awesome person to go w his skill.

Dr. Westbrook repaired my left torn meniscus 2 years ago and everything went smoothly and I recovered very quickly. I now have my right knee meniscus torn and I am ready for him to repair it as soon as possible. He also took care of my shoulder freeze without surgery! He's the only orthopedic doctor that I would trust and recommend in El Paso.

Dr. Westbrook is completely responsible for saving my tibia from being amputated, back in 1987. He determined that I had adamantinoma, a slow growing bone cancer, when I was 15. He told me if I was his daughter he would send me to M.D. Anderson, and we did. They saved my leg, and I owe Dr. Westbrook alot. He also helped my grandfather with his knee surgery. Great man! Awesome doctor!

He has done both of my knees and I have no problems or issues with either one. In fact, I have other friends who have used his services and they agree, He's the best!

Dr Westbrook did my hip replacement surgery and I have not had one pain in that hip since the surgery. I just wish I hadn't waited so long to have it repaired. It was a great experience. He has a wonderful staff and the hospital stay was easy and comfortable.
