He specializes in arthroscopic surgery and the treatment of patients who suffer from complex injuries of the shoulder, elbow, and knee joint. Dr. Burra routinely treats complex sports related injuries, applying his years of experience and specialization in this field. He serves as the team physician for Benedictine University, Bolingbrook High School, and Lincoln-Way West High School.

I have had two shoulder surgeries with Dr. Burra (left and right) and he is a great surgeon and cares deeply about his patients. I have recommended family and friends to him, which is the greatest compliment I can pay.

Fantastic experience with Dr Burra. He is highly skilled, and highly sought after for his excellent results. His approach to the entire procedure starting from consultation to surgery, post operative care, and therapy care has been very thorough, detailed and meticulous. I needed a rotator cuff...more

Had surgery with Dr Burra and after surgery at Salt Creek the anesthesiologist did a nerve block on the wrong shoulder. When I woke up I was in a lot of pain but could not move my other arm. I'd never go back there again! Terrible!!!
