I have a textbook gorgeous new total knee. His protocols are the highest standards in the
industry. He employs a wound nurse to change your dressings ensuring infection control
procedures. He and his staff are courteous and efficient. His pre surgery knee
replacement class and physical therapy sessions referrals put me ahead of the curve post
surgery. Highly qualified surgeon.

I think Dr Burchfield is a great doc! I tore up my knee snow skiing March of ʼ16. The ACL
was gone, with damage to the MCL and meniscus too. He fixed the knee and Iʼm good to
go. I wonʼt say it hasnʼt been a long slow road to recovery, but it IS as good as before. I
still get little pains occasionally but I consider it healed. Heʼs a really nice, down-to-earth
guy too. Highly recommend!

Dr. Burchfieldʼs specialty is sports medicine, but there isnʼt anything he canʼt do! He is an
excellent surgeon who really values his patientʼs success. He is conservative but does
what is necessary. His staff is great and his office is worth every minute spent there!
