I had a sigmoid colectomy on Monday and was released from the hospital on Wednesday. I have been working from home since Thursday and I am recovering very well. On schedule to return to the office after two weeks from the date of surgery. Not only is Dr. Burleson a very talented surgeon but he is also the chief of the colon rectal surgery division at Baylor. It's great to have such a skilled surgeon close to home. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this doctor.

Dr. Burleson performed my Hemmerhoidectomy. He is not a hand holder. What he is, is a very skilled doc leaving me in minimal pain post op. Im on day 2, and I can walk. His no nonsense approach made me feel like he knew what he was doing and so I trusted him. That trust was well placed. Personally, I like the confidence and no BS approach.
