Dr. Broome specializes in less invasive hip and knee replacement surgery. A native Texan, he completed his undergraduate and medical training at Texas Tech University. He earned top honors in college and medical school, graduating at the top of his class and being elected to the AOA medical honor society. He then moved to Louisville, KY where he performed his residency training in orthopaedics. During his training, Dr. Broome received numerous rewards for teaching and research. He served as the academic chief resident and helped develop a new bone graft substitute at the University of Louisville. He began presenting his research overseas as a junior resident.
He then spent an additional year at the world-known Steadman Hawkins institute where he did fellowship training in total joint replacements. During that year, he received specific training on less invasive total joint replacements as well as complex revision hip and knee replacements. He joined the Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas and worked for 2 years after completing fellowship. During that time, he remained active in research and has presented his work on joint replacements and pain control in the US and overseas. He became a gratis faculty member with the Clemson University Department of Biomedical Engineering where he continues to participate in research on alternative bearing surfaces in total joint replacements.
Wanting to be closer to his family, Dr. Broome moved back to Texas. He spent just over 3 years in El Paso where he became involved with teaching residents at Texas Tech University and helped to start a new training program in Las Cruces, NM. He currently works as a core faculty member for the Mountanview Orthopaedic Residency program in Las Cruces, NM and assists with research at the department of engineering at the University of Texas El Paso.
Dr. Broome currently performs nearly 500 total joint replacement procedures per year. He has performed nearly 1,500 direct anterior hip replacement procedures as well as over 1,000 minimally invasive, tissue sparing knee replacements. He remains involved in teaching residents and often has surgeons travel to observe and learn special surgical techniques. As medicine is constantly changing, Dr. Broome remains involved in research regarding surgical approaches, implants, and medications to lead to a quicker recovery. He has patented surgical instruments and remains engaged in improving the surgical process for total joint patients.
