About Scott Brakenridge

Scott Brakenridge, MD, MSCS, FACS, is an associate professor of surgery on the acute care surgery team at the University of Florida College of Medicine.

Dr. Brakenridge earned his medical degree from the Rush University, Rush Medical College in 2004. He then completed his general surgery residency at the University of Texas Southwestern, Parkland Memorial Hospital where he also was a clinical research fellow in the department of surgery’s burn/trauma/critical care division and a clinical research scholar in the department of clinical sciences. Before joining UF in 2013, he completed a trauma/surgical critical care fellowship at the University of Washington, Harborview Medical Center.

Dr. Brakenridge’s clinical interests include trauma surgery, acute care surgery and surgical critical care. This includes the comprehensive surgical care of severely injured trauma patients and patients with surgical emergencies, including their initial evaluation in the emergency department, the operative management of acute surgical issues and their subsequent supportive care in the intensive care unit. His interests also include the management of enterocutaneous fistulas, and abdominal wall reconstruction. 

Dr. Brakenridge is one of the primary investigators and core leaders of the UF Sepsis and Critical Illness Research Center. His research focuses on clinical, translational and outcomes approaches to investigate chronic critical illness (CCI), and the persistent inflammation, immunosuppression and catabolism syndrome (PICS) after surgical sepsis or severe traumatic injury.

Dr. Brakenridge is board-certified in general surgery and surgical critical care by the American Board of Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He is a member of the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, the Shock Society and the Association for Academic Surgery. He also is an American College of Surgeons Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course instructor and a trauma center site reviewer for the Washington State Department of Health.
