  • Testimonials1

    I am thrilled at my 6 week check up from my minimally invasive bilateral hip replacement surgery! I am recovering according to schedule and headed back to work....walking normally...after having both of my hips replaced. Thank you Dr. Burney and your team for taking great care of me and getting me back to living pain free in my hips!!

  • Testimonials2

    Dr. Burney is fantastic. I couldn't be more pleased with the level of care. He preformed surgery on a broken bone. He is professional and so is his staff. I would recommend him to anyone.

  • Testimonials3

    I was introduced to Dr. Burney by my primary physician. The 1st knee was done 2 yrs ago, the 2nd in January of this year. The past few months have been worth it, knowing once the pt was done, I would be able to walk and live a normal life, without pain. I would recommend this procedure to anyone who is trying to decide.
