I really like this doctor he listens to you and tries his best to help. I have been to a few Orthopedic surgeons in the area but I feel that this is the first doctor that actually listens to what’s wrong with me and he’s trying his best to remedy the problem.

I had a neck procedure (ACDF) done by Dr. Burnham on Feb. 10th and my recovery has gone very well. Dr. Burnham has provided me with the guidance and advice to help this happen by clearly detailing the post procedure protocol and addressing any concerns I have had during my two consultations with him since the surgery.

He did an excellent job on surgery I recently had for a microdiscectomy. He was excellent at explaining the procedure and following up with me afterward to see how I was doing. The team he has at Huntington Orthopedics was very courteous and addressed all of my concerns and questions throughout the process.
