Dr. Burval's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Burval "Dr. Burval is a graduate of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation where he served as Chief Resident. He received extensive training in spinal and orthopedic surgery at the renowned Cleveland Clinic Foundation, as well as during his fellowship in Adult and Pediatric Spinal Disorders at OrthoIndy in Indianapolis. At OrthoIndy, he trained under Dr. Terry Trammell who has provided spinal care for all Indy Car drivers since 1984 until retiring in 2014. He was a flight physician for Cleveland Metro LifeFlight from 2004-2008 and is well versed in all aspects of trauma care. He has trained at some of the largest trauma centers in the country, lectured nationally and internationally, written research papers and a book chapter on spine fractures. I love what I do! I am a conservative surgeon who specializes in spine surgery, degenerative spinal disorders, spine tumors, and minimally invasive spine, in addition to the treatment of spine fractures and orthopedic traumatic extremity and hip fractures. I emphasize providing non-operative options first and believe strongly in the use of rehabilitation to improve one's health and pain before considering surgery, as these can often be all that is necessary to relieve back, neck, arm, or leg pain due to spine conditions. However, when surgery is necessary, my staff and I work diligently and quickly towards your recovery. I feel it is important to spend the time to explain your condition thoroughly and answer questions to your satisfaction. I have had back surgery myself and have experienced the severe pain and dysfunction associated with compressed nerves. I feel it is important to not sugar coat any situation and provide you with the best data available and options for your condition. This sometimes means increased waiting time because I spend a large portion of my time face to face with you working with you to get you on the road to recovery as quickly as possible. My motto: "My best effort and your best effort equal success!" Spine pain can be challenging because sometimes there is not a "cure" but never give up. This means sometimes I have to tell patients things they don't want to hear, like narcotic abuse or unhealthy habits. I will always tell you "like it is" and work passionately with you towards your recovery. "

Patient Comments (6)

Wait time was exceedingly long. Appointment was for 10:30 and I was called back at 11:50. Dr. Burvall was easy to understand, knowledgeable and likable but I was left feeling desperate and hopeless as he seemed me to want to re-do everything that I have tried over the past few years. The worst...more

Dr. Burval provided excellent care to my grandmother who he operated on twice in the last 6 months. He goes above and beyond to make sure his patients know every option available and he is forthright and honest. We appreciated his diligence and attention after surgery as well.

I have always been told never have back surgery. After Dr. Burial got MRI back, he talked to me about what he had to do to fix my back. He made me feel good about the surgery, and relaxed me. The surgery went smooth after that. ,Now 15 days after surgery I have 0 pain and getting around great.

Dr. Burval had a very conservative approach to treating my medical condition. He listened to my concerns & answered all my questions regarding my condition & the proposed treatment options. Unfortunately the conservative methods did not work & I ended up having surgery on my lower back. The surgery...more
