First time with Dr Burgdorff for a hip dysplasia consult. I was late because I was awake half the night watching the Woolsey Fire on the news & I was worried about a loved one who couldn’t be reached. Despite my tardiness, Burgdorff & his wonderful staff still agreed to see me. I didn’t wait much to be called or seen. He was very attentive and answered my questions with care and concern. I was able to have X-rays & the results in less than half an hour. Dr Burgdorff is top notch.

If you want the best surgeon available in southern California for knee or hip reconstruction or replacement, request Dr. Burgdorff at Loma Linda University. I have had 3 surgeries by Dr. Burgdorff and am so grateful for Dr. Burgdorff's exceptional expertise. The office staff and Judy were amazing.

Dr. Burgdorff replaced both of my knees with one of them being a second replacement after a motorcycle accident which made it more complicated than the usual knee replacement. I am totally happy with the results of the surgery. I just cant give enough praise for Dr. Burgdorff's ability but also for his willingness to tackle a surgery that some other Drs. refused to do. I now have my ability to walk and stand as required by the normal activities of everyday life. I thank God for Dr. Burgdorff.

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!

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.

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.
