Steven K. Brooks, MD

Dr. Steven Brooks is proud to have served tens of thousands of patients through out Seminole and Orange county over the last thirty years. It is quite a distinction that many of these patients have been with him since he established his practice years ago. Both doctor and patient alike have enjoyed the bonds created over the years. He has a legacy of excellent patient care and service to Central Florida and has been the recipient of the People’s Choice award for Best Physicians of Orlando. Dr. Brooks knew from an early age that he wanted to be a physician and started to work toward this goal early on in high school. He was the recipient of two National Science Foundation summer scholarship programs. As a consequence of his academic achievement, the doctor was one of a very small and select group of high school seniors accepted simultaneously to both college and medical school. He was one of only twenty students selected yearly for his program.
Originally from New York, he received his medical degree from the University of Connecticut, graduating at the top of his class. He did his General Surgery training at the esteemed NYU/Bellevue in New York City, returning to the University of Connecticut for his Urology Residency. Dr. Brooks is Board certified and is honored to be in his sixteenth year as Chief of Surgery for South Seminole Hospital. Having been on staff for thirty years, he is very proud of Orlando Health, South Seminole Hospital and assures you the highest level of personalized care at this facility. The Doctor has had an interest in research having published and presented his first research paper as only a college freshman. He has continued his interest in research within his medical practice as a principal investigator for a number of
investigational medications and medical devices. In 1997 he was privileged to be invited to present the key note address at the launch of one of these medications, with this medicine eventually becoming one of the most frequently prescribed therapies, world wide, for the enlarged prostrate. As a key opinion leader, he has published, and lectured nationally on topics related to the enlarged prostate and has been on a number of national advisory boards. He has lectured nationally on various surgical procedures. Dr. Brooks is one of only a handful of Urologists in the United States skilled at the Radical Perineal Prostatectomy; a minimally invasive, approximately one hour, cost effective surgical procedure for prostate cancer allowing for immediate resumption of diet and typically, discharge the following morning. Dr. Brooks believes this technique offers advantages to robotic prostatectomy. He is one of the most experienced surgeons on this surgical approach for prostate cancer having perfected the procedure over the last thirty years. He is skilled at all aspects of Urology including the treatment of kidney stones, ED, incontinence, the treatment of prostate, kidney, bladder, and testicular cancers. Dr. Brooks is also an accomplished implant surgeon with over thirty years experience with penile implants and artificial urinary sphincters. He finds vasectomy reversals to be very rewarding and has enjoyed great success at this procedure, which he provides at a very reasonable fee. You can be sure that you will see  Dr. Brooks personally at every visit. He has a wonderful and experienced staff, some of which having been with the doctor for nearly thirty years. The doctor provides personally dictated notes to your referring physicians, and believes patient education is a critical component of patient care. His parents instilled a great sense of empathy and community service and he strives to honor their memory through the care he provides. Known for his kind heart, sense of humor and his compassion   Dr. Brooks makes an effort to get to know each of his patients personally, adhering to the strong belief that you have to treat the whole patient, particularly when dealing with sensitive issues such as cancer, incontinence, voiding dysfunction, sexual dysfunction and illness in general. He shares in his patient’s medical triumphs and is by their side during difficult times. The doctor enjoys physical fitness, Yoga, traveling and loves New York City! He makes a mean Brooks burger.

Patient Review

Verified Patient of Dr. Brooks

Dr. Brooks is the best around when it comes to laser prostate surgery. He takes time to talk with you, and you get the feeling that he really cares. His follow up care is very good. I would highly recommend him for any prostate issues you may have.

Verified Patient of Dr. Brooks

I recently had a Greenlight Laser Surgery by Dr Brooks to treat my BPH condition that was becoming unbearable. Dr Brooks was great in giving me options and we exhausted all of them includingincreasing the medication I was taking. The decision to go with this procedure was made easy by researching Dr Brooks knowledge and experience in performing this procedure. It has only been 2-1/2 weeks since my procedure but I am feeling no discomfort and notice a 100% improvement. Dr Brooks took the extra time during my procedure, from 1 hr to an additional half hour in order to optimize the results in reducing my prostate as it was very enlarged. I am very grateful for him taking the extra surgery time and his time in making sure I received the best results.

Board Certifications

Why it Matters: Dr. Brooks' Board Certification

Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.

Board Certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
