Dr. Arnold Kiburz, MD
Dr. John Kiburz is a board-eligible orthopaedic surgeon with a special interest in sports medicine, who joined New Mexico Orthopaedics in 2009. During his residency, he was proud to have served as Chief Resident at Ochsner Clinic Foundation in New Orleans, where he coordinated physician coverage for high school and collegiate athletics to be provided by he and his peers. Dr. Kiburz is well aware that our culture places significant value on recreational activity, lifestyle and athletics. Accordingly, he is extremely passionate about preserving or restoring the ability to participate in these activities—for his patients, for his community and for his own family. Dr. Kiburz is especially drawn to the practice of orthopaedics because many of the lifestyle-limiting injuries encountered can be successfully treated. In addition, Dr. Kiburz firmly believes that his fellowship training in sports medicine has equipped him with the latest techniques to provide his patients with the most advanced treatment options to get them back to their desired level of activity. Each and every individual patient is empowered and becomes an active participant on a team, dedicated and focused on personalized goals and aspirations for resuming an active life. Dr. Kiburz reaches out to the community through a number of volunteering efforts, such as working with clinics and hospitals that care for the less fortunate, as well as donating his time and knowledge to local youth by providing medical coverage for sporting events and day camps. He also enjoys participating in all that the outdoors has to offer, especially marathon running, golf, football, baseball, hiking and traveling.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kiburz for about 5 years. This practice is very efficient. Dr, Kiburz is a good listener and explains your condition, treatment options and decided upon treatment plan in a straightforward, easy to understand manner. I had a potentially career ending injury, however, Dr. Kiburz was able to surgically make the repair and after about 6 months (with lots of physical therapy) I was almost 100%. I owe my career to this gentleman. I highly recommend Dr. Kiburz!
Mark, thank you for leaving this detailed feedback about your experience with John Kiburz, MD. Here at NM Orthopaedics we strive to give the best care possible to our patients. We are so glad you are getting back in peak condition. You really made our day today.

I read not so great reviews about Dr. Kiburz, but I was scheduled for surgery with him and I was in no position to ask for someone else. I thought he was just fine. He looked at the MRI's . I asked him to work on my patella as if it was his own and I believe he did. I think he deserves a good review. I have a follow up in a couple of days
Elizabeth, reviews like this give us motivation and help us ensure we provide high-quality care. Your recommendation means so much to us and we're so happy to have earned it. Thank you again for taking the time to let the world know about your positive experience. Have a great day!

I saw Dr. Kiburz in 2013 and 2014 for a work injury to my knee. I can say that I only wish I could've seen another Dr. Not only was he rude but he never even looked at my knee. He stated he doesn't look at the MRIs he goes by the statement of the tech that performs them. To this day,I'm still waiting surgery hopefully with another surgeon. I would never let him touch my leg. I have talked to people who he did surgery on, and said he left them worse than before the surgery

Doctor has performed two arthroscopic surgeries on my knees. He is excellent at explaining and really cares about me returning to my active life. I am now discussing a knee replacement with him. I know he will do an excellent job!
