Compassionate Care from Experience
Looking for an orthopedic provider who understands you? Dr. Braaksma has true empathy for his patients with orthopedic surgery needs, having suffered from multiple sports-related knee injuries during his college football years. His experience as a patient, his passion for science, and his desire to improve the patient’s quality of life convinced him that orthopedic surgery was his calling in life.

“Seeing patients who’ve suffered from hip or knee pain for years or decades, and then to see them back a few weeks after surgery, where their pain is gone, and they are back to doing the things they love – working, athletics, or playing with grandkids – is a rewarding experience. There is nothing better than seeing the positive impact you’ve had on their life – that’s why I am an arthroplasty surgeon,” Dr. Braaksma said.
