Bio

Dr. Brooke grew up in Salt Lake City and received his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Utah before heading east to complete his internship and residency in General Surgery at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. During his Halsted residency, he received his Ph.D. in Clinical Investigation at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He then completed his fellowship in Vascular Surgery at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

Dr. Brooke’s clinical practice is focused on the open and endovascular treatment of aortic, visceral, carotid, and lower extremity arterial disease. He will also provide dialysis vascular access, and both open and catheter-based treatment of lower extremity venous reflux and varicose veins. Dr. Brooke is board certified in General Surgery and board eligible in Vascular Surgery.

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Brooke is actively involved in health service research aimed at improving quality and clinical outcomes within the Department of Surgery and the Cardiovascular Service Line. He will lead surgical implementation research within the newly created Program for Health System Innovation and Research (HSIR). Dr. Brooke is also helping to establish the Utah Intervention Quality and Implementation Research (U-INQUIRE) group, directed at improving surgical quality and providing clinical research support for all surgical and interventional specialties within the University of Utah Health System.
