Dr. Burke and his staff or caring and professional in the handling of those they serve. His bedside manner is both compassionate and ethical. I have recommended 4 people who all used and or continuing to use him for their orthopedic needs. I will continue to recommend his practice to those who need a great orthopedic surgeon.

Great experience! In less than 4 months I am very comfortably mobile, way better than before surgery. I was plagued with knee pain due to an injury 60 years ago, both knees damaged in a car wreck. I am so grateful to Dr Burke & his team and also Texas Orthopedic Hospital.

Superior physician as is his PA, Aaron. They take time to listen and their patient communication skills are equally superior. Their office registration and checkout staff mirror Dr. Burke. Once you try them, you’ll never switch.

This is the first time I have met Dr. Burke. I was impressed from the moment he walked in the room. He took time to listen to me. He answered my questions completely and understood my frustration with my health conditions. I would recommend Dr. Burke to anyone needing knee care.

Gail – Jul 04, 2021
Dr. Burke is an excellent surgeon. I was in and out in record time. The knee replacement is progressing nicely. The only hiccup was no fault of his, and probably no fault of the anesthesiologist either , as I provided incomplete information to start. I had a partial lung collapse, but the anesthesiologist was not given all of the information needed. I am 74, and had chronic severe asthma as a child. As I had no attacks in the last 57 years, it did not seem relevant, but it left me with scar tissue and a lot of non-functional alveioli in the lungs (more susceptible to lung collapse). My lungs are slowly re-inflating, and I think I had an excellent anesthesiologist as well. Dr. Burke gets 2 thumbs up.
