My daughter hurt her knee playing soccer...Ultimately, the outcome of her simple twisted knee was a torn ACL and torn meniscus requiring surgery. Without hesitation, Dr. Burnham reassured my daughter, answered all of her questions...Dr. Burnham's bedside manner is a rare find in this fast paced world of medicine. It was refreshing to know that we were placing my daughter in very caring surgeon hands...We have followed all his advice and are healing very well. I have already told our family and friends how wonderful our care has been. I highly recommend Dr. Burnham.

His staff is awesome, they are compassionate and attentive to making sure every detail of your pre care and post care is addressed. My son's surgery went well. Thank you for your excellent service!!

K Roussel Verified Patient Review

Highly recommended! I fell and my hamstring muscle tore away with a piece of bone attached. He could see I was upset about the news that I needed surgery. Dr. Burnham took his time explaining why I needed the surgery, answered my question and NEVER seemed rushed even though he had other patients. He explained that it would be a painful recovery but I had NO PAIN! I think it’s because of his care during surgery. He’s an excellent and compassionate doctor!
