Dr. Scott Brotherton, MD
Dr Scott Brotherton is a Florida native who grew up in the state's panhandle. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Alabama then returned to Florida and earned his medical degree from Florida State University College of Medicine. He finished his orthopedic residency training in upstate New York at Albany Medical Center with a heavy focus on trauma and arthroplasty. Dr Brotherton served in the United States Air Force prior to entering his sports medicine fellowship at The Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, FL with the world renowned Dr James Andrews, surgeon to the professional athletes. There he focused on the care of athletes as well as arthroscopic and regenerative procedures, the application of stem cell and other biologic therapies, and expanded his base of knowledge in the diagnosis and management of upper and lower extremity pathology. In addition to obtaining superior surgical training, Dr Brotherton received extensive 'on-the-field' training and provided coverage to athletic teams at multiple levels, including Minor League Baseball, Division I & Division II College Football and Athletics (Auburn University, Tuskegee University, University of West Florida), local high school football, and other sporting events. While Dr Brotherton enjoys providing care to athletes at all levels, he most enjoys participating at the high school and early college levels. It is here that he feels he can most make a difference in the lives of young athletes. He also believes that many methods used to treat high level athletes can be adapted and applied to the general population and it's growing number of aging, active individuals.

Excellent surgeon and had wonderful bedside manner during surgery, but wished he would take a little more time and patience with answering questions. My surgery healing time is a long term process. Each time we met during during post-op visits, I felt as though he was always rushed and did not always provide sufficient information, or clear answers, on what to expect moving forward during post-surgery.

Dr Scott Brotherton is a wonderful doctor. He did surgery on my knee -torn meniscus. Very nice, caring and I have recommended him to several people. I can't say enough good things about him. If you need a orthopedic surgeon I think you would be very happy with Dr Scott Brotheron

Great ortho surgeon. Fitted a really needed surgery into a busy schedule on his Friday night. Came to see me in the hospital to visit. Could have just looked at progress on line. 5 star.
