About Peter Brooks, MD

Peter Brooks, MD, FRCSC, is a staff physician in the Orthopaedic & Rheumatologic Center at Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital, where he specializes in total joint replacement of the hip and knee, and in hip resurfacing.

Dr. Brooks is globally renowned for his pioneering work in hip resurfacing, a bone-preserving procedure suited for young, active adults as an alternative to hip replacement. He has performed more than 4,600 hip resurfacing cases since the implant system was approved by the FDA in 2006, making him one of the highest volume hip resurfacing practitioners in the United States.

Prior to his move to Florida in 2022, Dr. Brooks was a staff physician in the Center for Adult Reconstruction in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Cleveland Clinic’s Euclid Hospital in Ohio, where he served as Chief of Surgery. He also served as Director of Cleveland Clinic’s Training Center for Hip Resurfacing. The majority of Dr. Brooks’ medical career, more than three decades, has been with Cleveland Clinic, where he has achieved a reputation as the “busiest orthopaedic surgeon in Cleveland Clinic history.”

Committed to medical innovation, Dr. Brooks is interested in new techniques in joint replacement and hip resurfacing, as well as teaching and community outreach. He has participated in numerous clinical studies on hip resurfacing, joint replacement, postoperative pain management, and other topics. He has authored dozens of articles and book chapters and has made over 100 national and international presentations.

Notably, Dr. Brooks was included in the International Hip Resurfacing Group, which represents 27 experienced hip resurfacing arthroplasty (HRA) centers across 13 countries. Patient data from the centers formed an international HRA registry database consisting of 11,382 metal-on-metal HRA cases in young patients using 18 different implant systems. A comparative review of implant survivorship, revision rates and other outcomes data published in 2020 demonstrated hip resurfacing in young patients is a safe and effective alternative to total hip replacement. 

Dr. Brooks earned his medical degree at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Canada, followed by a general surgery residency at Ottawa Civic Hospital in Ottawa, Ontario. His orthopaedics training included the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Program and a fellowship in total joint replacement, revision surgery, and allografts at the University of Toronto.

Named to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, Dr. Brooks is also a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada and of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, as well as a member of the American Orthopaedic Association.

Dr. Brooks, a leader in joint replacement, was also highly detailed in directions for me to follow post-operatively. He has an excellent clinical team around him as well. Unlike some physicians, he invited continued communication for any concerns until recheck in one year. We traveled from Chicago to see Dr. Brooks In February for left hip resurfacing replacement. We will travel to receive this high level of care.

Peter Brooks is the best. That's why I seeked him to do the other hip (BHR). He did the last one 12 years ago in Cleveland. Fortunately for me, he too had moved to Florida. I could have got my hip done in Sarasota but didn't want to chance it. I've had absolutely no issues with the 1st Operation and confident I'll have the same results the 2nd time.
