Dr. Joseph Burns is a Superstar in my book. First rate, 5 Star Orthopedic Professional I am an avid mountain biker, who has had 3 previous surgeries on my right shoulder. It had been obliterated from crashes. Before Dr. Burns, the last surgeon told me, to find a new sport, or the next time would most likely result in shoulder replacement. Well, it happened again, another crash. After extensive research, I chose Dr. Burns, over many others, to do what I was told couldn’t be done. The moment I met with him, I knew I had made the right choice. I had never been more comfortable and confidant in a surgeon. Given the skills of Dr. Burns along with the generous donation of a cadaver’s tissue, “thank you whoever you were”, my shoulder is back in use, and I am riding as good, as ever I was. I most highly recommend Dr. Burns Thank you, Dr. Burns, you are an incredible individual, and an outstanding surgeon. So very sorry you are no longer here in So. Cal. J. Olson Palmdale, CA.

I requested a second review on my shoulder injury and research it and requested to see Dr Burns. During that time I had a knee injury also. Excited to see that Dr Burns specialized in knee injuries too. He ended up doing both surgeries. Knee was repair of meniscus and removal of completely torn meniscus on the outside of the knee . Later was complete left shoulder replacement. Both went extremely well.

There are no words to describe just how great Dr Burns & his staff are. My brothers, sister & I have had to have more knees & shoulders repaired than the typical family due to sports injuries. He's been our go-to for many years & has also had to fix what other University orthopedic staff have done, to be honest, not a very good job on. When your mom wants to go with her gut & bring you home to have Dr Burns do you surgery, you may want to listen!!

This is my third surgery with Dr Burns. He has an excellent bedside manner, takes the time to explain the procedure to you and answers all questions. He takes a personal interest in the patient and has a genuine concern for the patient, both before and after the procedure. Dr Burns will always be my first choice for any orthopedic needs.

This is my 2nd surgery with Dr Burns, I have nothing but good things to say about him, he repaired my daughters ACL and my son’s collarbone, so we’re keeping him in business just from my family alone. The professionalism of his staff is incredible and all are so friendly.

Dr Burns is an excellent surgeon and I am very happy with the outcome of my surgery. He and his P.A., Megan take their time explaining your treatment and they are willing to answer your concerns to put your mind at ease. Surgery is not something to enter into lightly and Dr Burns made sure we exhausted all conservative forms of treatment before recommending surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing treatment for your shoulders as he is a top notch surgeon!

Dr. Burns did a total shoulder replacement for me. I have had a double knee replacement and two hips replaced, this surgery was by far the easiest. The recover time and pain tolerance were very tolerable. Dr. Burns and his staff, both at Henry Mayo Hospital in Valencia and his office staff, were incredible to work with. The procedure was thoroughly explained and all my concerns answered comprehensively and with great care. I recommend Dr. Burns HIGHLY. I'd give him 10 if I could.
