I went to Dr. Burnikel for a second opinion regarding knee replacement. He listened to me and took more time with me than my original (lst opinion) doctor. Better explanation and discussion of what we can do to correct my knee. Ended my relationship with previous doctor. When finished with physical therapy at ATI will then turn to Dr. Burnikel as my doctor.

Dr. Burnikel replaced Terry Kamps hips first on April 18, 2016 and the second July 18, 2016. Every step of this serious surgery was handled in the most professional manner possible. The patient feels very confident after just the initial meeting! Outstanding skill level shown by Dr. Burnikel all the way through both surgery experiences. Thank you sir for giving Terry back quality of life. We wil be indebited to you for the rest of our lives. Terry & Kathleen Kamp
