Brad Yoo, MD is a board-certified orthopaedic trauma surgeon and Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation. He specializes in treating severe fractures, post-fracture complications, as well as deformities and arthritis of the lower extremity.

Born and raised in Connecticut, Dr. Yoo graduated cum laude from Cornell University. He obtained his medical degree from New York Medical College where he first found his passion for orthopaedics. Next came a residency in Baltimore, MD at the University of Maryland Medical Center, the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, and the Johns Hopkins Hospital. He then spent a fellowship year specializing in orthopaedic trauma at the University of Washington Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Dr. Yoo has more than 20 years of experience treating patients and educating residents at tertiary level one trauma centers. Prior to joining Yale in 2018, Dr. Yoo spent almost a decade at the University of California, Davis Medical Center and was Chief of Orthopaedic Trauma at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, OR.

Dr. Yoo practices the Golden Rule. He appreciates that injury can be an anxiety provoking, disruptive event to both patients and their families.
