Dr. Burton is a great doctor he is rated top 5 in the country he has done 2 back surgeries on me he devoted his life to help people with back problems. He has also done a cage Fusion on my wife. I don't think he still does surgery but he does participate in it. And I'm sure the surgeons that are in his office are very well recommended to. sorry to say this but I will be going back to see him very soon. Again he is a great doctor.

Dr Burton is nothing but a paid puppet for WSI of North Dakota. We discussed pain, numbness in extremities along with the inability to live normal life due to pain but his reports excludes most of this detail. He acted all sincere during the exam and agreed with detail of injury then completely changes tune in the report. I would rate him lower if I could but that is the lowest it will go. He might be a good doctor in his time and a good man but he definitely knows who pays his check!

Saved my life and I'm sure countless others with his professional care. Hes a very good listener and very kind doctor. Dr Burton is well known through the USA as one of the top neurosurgeons in his field. He is dedicated and tough minded. Yet real enough as a man to take my phone call from me whe I was recovering from 2 level fusion. Great Doctor! Who made a difference in my life.
St Paul, MN |
6 years ago, after another noted St. Paul surgeon dismissed my concerns, Dr. Burton immediately took his own clinical findings, which were beyond the scope of his practice, to a spine conference for consultation. Subsequently he referred me to another surgeon for an intervention. His selfless action prevented devastating disabilities and possibly saved my life.
