I hurt my knee playing basketball, and went to the Med Center ER, where I was told that I HAD to see the Med Center orthopedist. ( I later found out was NOT true). I saw the Med Center doctor, who told me that my multiple ligament injury was "too complex" and that I was going to be referred to UK in Lexington. I knew that Dr. Burch was team doc for WKU athletes, and had taken care of Courtney Lee. He did my surgery, and I've done fantastic. I was just released by Dr. Burch for full sports.

Dr. Burch II, MD is undoubtedly the finest doctor I have ever met and worked with! One afternoon I discovered a cyst had developed on the back of my right knee. I was able to get an appointment almost immediately. Dr. Burch examined the cyst, explained how this "baker's cyst" developed & what our options were. This exam & discussion time took about 30 mins. Dr. Burch was happy to answer all questions and concerns without any pressure to hurry. The cyst recently disappeared. Hooray!
