Texas Health Care (THC) welcomes the return of Glen Hooker, MD, to its Colon & Rectal Surgery Practice Group.  He previously practiced with THC for eight years before returning to his native Canada for a brief period.  Dr. Hooker is coming back to Fort Worth and THC to resume his successful practice.    
Dr. Hooker completed medical school at the University of Western Ontario, graduating on the Dean’s Honor List.  He completed his residency at the University of Western Ontario Hospital System, during which time he received several research awards.   He completed his fellowship at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas.  Board certified in General Surgery and Colon & Rectal Surgery, Dr. Hooker is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a Fellow of the American Society of Colon & Rectal Surgery.  
Dr. Hooker is committed to raising awareness of colon and rectal cancer, which he notes is the second-leading cause of death due to cancer in the U.S.  He was drawn to the field for very personal reasons.  "My mother died from colon cancer just as I was starting my medical training, and thereafter I became interested in helping others not suffer the same fate," Dr. Hooker said. "I like to help patients get beyond their fear of diagnostic procedures – particularly colonoscopy – so that they can benefit from this life-saving screening test." He would like to see people become "more comfortable talking about colon cancer, and taking steps to prevent it." 
Dr. Hooker is happy to be back in Fort Worth and rejoining THC.  "My family and I like Fort Worth because of the educational opportunities for our children, and the small-town feel," he said.  THC is "a great group of physicians who truly put the patient first.  I enjoy working alongside the physician members of THC – we often collaborate to solve problems for patients – you can easily team up with an expert in any field within our multi-specialty group and the patient benefits from this comprehensive care." 
Dr. Hooker and his wife, Connie, have two young children, Bryson and Abby.   He was a Certified Hockey Trainer while living in Canada and continues to play hockey in his free time.
