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...more
