I am a nurse that works with many ortho surgeons in the OR and over the years of knowing him, I came to respect Dr. Burns for his operative technique, professionalism, attention to detail, bedside manner and how thorough he is. Several years after working with him, I had an accident and needed surgery on my knee. Out of all the surgeons I have worked with, he was the first one I thought to call upon.

Dr. Burns treated me like a person with a problem that could be solved but did not force me into a surgery. He provided me with the pros and cons of surgical correction and allowed me time to decided what would be the best course of action for my lifestyle.

I had been in pain for 3 months. Saw him on a Monday and had my rotator cuff surgery Friday that very same week. He went out of his way to work me into his schedule. I was very pleased with the outcome.

Dr Burns and his residents recently performed a reverse shoulder replacement on me. It is difficult to describe how wonderfully pleased I am with the outcome. They did a fabulous job. I have had minimal pain and a rapid recovery. Am ahead of schedule with range of motion and strength. Most importantly they take time to listen, they address any questions and concerns and have been so very pleasant and personable. I can't imagine there is a better team in San Antonio.

I cannot praise Dr. Burns enough!! March 14 of this year I fell and fractured the femur on my left leg, and when I arrived at The Shanno:n West Texas Memorial Hospital, there was no Orthopedic Surgeon in or on call, due to spring break. We were terrified that we didn't know the doctor that we were getting. When Dr. Burns came on the scene, he was like an angel from heaven. My leg is healing very well, thanks to Dr. Burns. If I had to have any more broken bones, I would want him to fix it.

A kind and friendly physician with a high level of trust by others in his department. Always willing to provide all information, even if it is not what someone wants to hear. No inflation of expectations.

Honesty! Professionalism! Knowledge! This man has made my life so much better after performing Total Reverse Shoulder surgery. I can move my arm, lift things, sleep without pain. My pain after the surgery, which I really feared, was practically nil. The nerve block worked great, the suggestion for a pain ball was good and really helped keep the pain at bay. Thanks Dr Burns & assistants.

Unfortunately I have had multiple orthopaedic surgeries over the years. This last surgery, a shoulder replacement, went much better then any surgery I've had in the past. My shoulder, at 90 days, feels & acts like my original and is virtually pain free. I highly recommend Dr Burns to anyone needing orthopaedic surgery.

In my opinion, Dr. Burns is the best shoulder surgeon. He performed a total shoulder replacement on me, and 6 months later I had full mobility, strength, and best of all - no pain! I waited several months for him to return from a deployment so that he could perform my surgery. I was told that this was the "the shoulder guy" at SAMMC, and man were they right. I have complete trust in his ability, and highly recommend him.
