Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Burgdorff "As an orthopaedic surgeon I enjoy the relationships that I have with my patients. I listen to their problems and the challenges they face. I explain what to reasonably expect from each treatment option that is available to them. I ask myself what I would choose if I faced this decision for myself and what I would recommend to a family member if they were facing the same challenge in this setting. I can then help the patient choose a treatment option that they understand and are comfortable with."

Everything from office visits, pre-op, surgery, and post-op was great. Dr. Burgdorff/staff explains the procedure and the options in everyday language and is extremely caring. He listens to any concerns and puts you at complete ease with what to expect during hip replacement. I needed both hips replaced and he completed the one hip in August. What success! The pain is almost gone and getting better each day with more & more mobility. My other hip will be done soon and I can't wait! Great office!

One of the best doctors I have ever seen........Extremely knowledgeable and very professional....My results were great!!! Just can't say how satisfied I am with the care and results..I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Burgdorff to everyone I know that needs specialized procedures.....
in Barstow, CA |
After having both knee joints replaced, I'm totally a new woman. I highly recommend Dr. Burgdorff to anyone contemplating the surgery. I now wonder why I waited so long.
in Victorville, Ca |
The Doctor was fantastic. Gave a straight answer to all of my questions and spoke to me as a regular person , not talking down to me. Was very kind and listened and answered without holding back. The surgery was the best thing that ever happened to me. While recovering his response was "WALK, WALK, WALK"! His PA Judy Racine was just as wonderful and kind.
San Bernardino, CA |

in Fontana, CA |
Efficiency in all phases from first appointment to post op appointment. Dr. Burgdorff was very congenial and fully explained any questions I had. The results of my surgery are going extremely well. Yes, I would recommend him to friends and relatives. Also, all the clinic, hospital, and follow-up staff surrounding him are extremely efficient and cordial. I wish to thank Dr. Burgdorff, his entire staff, and Loma Linda University for the excellent services I received.
in Perris, CA |
Dr. Burgdorff is a very experienced orthopaedic surgeon. He is compassionate and explains issues that a patient can understand. During surgery my family was called as to the progress which was a great comfort. After surgery, Dr. Burgdorff came out to the waiting room to personally speak to family members as a reassurance. His staff all acted professional with compassion before surgery and after surgery which included a hospital stay of three days. My knee replacement went very well.
in Phelan, CA |
My knees were bone on bone, knock-kneed to the extreme, and I couldn't barely shuffle around. I saw several orthopedic surgeons, but was terrified of surgery. I felt encouraged when I was referred to Loma LInda. After seeing Dr. Burgdorff, I finally had to courage to go through with the surgery. He did total knee replacement on both knees two months apart. It was the best thing I ever did. He is amazing. My legs are straight, knees, straight, and pain free. I can walk any distance now
in Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730 |
Dr. Burgdorff a very caring physician, did a good job repairing my knee. He's a man of honesty n intergrity. I truly enjoyed being in his care n recommend him to anyone who has a knee problem.
