Steven Brooks, MD graduated from Occidental College in Los Angeles, California and detoured from advanced education for five years to play professional football in the NFL for the L.A./St. Louis Rams, San Francisco 49’ers, New Orleans Saints, Detroit Lions, and Washington Redskins. In the off-season Dr. Brooks was also a professional actor, appearing in several episodes of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Beverly Hills 90210, HBO’s Arliss and the movie Space Jam.

Dr. Brooks inevitably followed his passion to become a doctor and matriculated to AUC School of Medicine in 2001. Dr. Brooks completed his general surgery residency at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, where he was named the Raleigh-Ross Outstanding Resident by the Texas Surgical Society. While chief resident at Texas Tech, he was the recipient of the 2010 American College of Surgeons Resident Award for Exemplary Teaching. Although the American College of Surgeons (ACS) had met annually for the previous 96 years, Dr. Brooks was only the 8th recipient of the award.

He completed two additional years of fellowship at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, where he trained in Trauma Surgery, Surgical Critical Care and Acute Care Surgery. He received the Vanderbilt University Adult Emergency Department Advocate Award for “representing the highest ideals of patient advocacy and professionalism with patients and Emergency Department Physicians.” In 2016 he was received the “South Plains Emergency Medical Service (SPEMS) Physician of the Year” award from the Trauma Area B Regional Advisory Council (B-RAC).

Dr. Brooks is board certified in both General Surgery and Surgical Critical Care and has returned to Texas Tech University Medical Center in Lubbock, where he is now the Trauma Medical Director, Director of the Geriatric Trauma Unit and Surgical Director of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

Dr. Brooks is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), and a member of the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) and the International College of Surgeons.
