“After years of trying to get relief from other surgeons in the area, I finally got what I was looking for. I went into my first visit armed with my MRI from another surgeon who had been working with me for a year with no success. I had 3 injections that year that did nothing but blow me up like a balloon. These injections took a lot of time, money and effort to only give me some re-lief for a very short period of time. I presented my MRI to Dr. Burval who was able to explain very clearly and show me what was causing my nerve pain. He then told me that I had an op-tion to have surgery that would fix the problem. I did not hesitate at all. After 10 long years of trying to find out what was wrong with me, Dr. Burval was able to do that in just about 3 minutes. He was kind, easy going and spoke on a level that even I could understand very easily. I had no doubts at all that I was in the right hands. His assistant Tanya was also as genuine and caring. Thus reflecting who she worked for. My health issues had robbed me of my career as a guitarist and vocalist. I had not been able to stand up and hold my guitar any longer, which left me no choice but to leave the stage. I had been a professional musician for 40 years. As I write I'm only into my third week post surgery, but the confidence I have on re-turning to the stage is enormous and getting bigger each and every day. Every step of the way Dr. Burval has told me exactly what is going to happen, how I will feel and everything he has told me has been on the money. I could not be happier with him and his staff who have given me back my life.”
– Gary A.
“Excellent care. Dr. Burval always took his time in talking with me and surgery was a suc-cess!”
– Amy T.
“I needed surgery on a Sunday after a fall resulting in Shattered bones. Even on a Sunday the Surgeon provided Excellent, Fast and Friendly Care. My only concern was a need for much faster response from OT and better instructions for Lovenox injections. I missed two injec-tions. This to me is, especially important with elderly care givers. Very happy with physician.”
– Thomas L.
“Experience better than I had hoped. The surgery center and Dr. Burval are awe-some.”

“Dr. Burval was excellent and treated me very well. This was the first time I've experienced a trauma and though it was painful and scary he certainly made me feel a lot better about every-thing.”

“I was very leery of this surgery in general. Dr. Burval explained thoroughly and surgery was successful. I will definitely recommend Dr. Burval to any friends or acquaintances needing or-thopaedic assistance.”

“Had a great experience considering the circumstances. Dr. Burval was terrific and his staff was very supportive. Had a ruptured disc, excruciating pain, and could barely walk. Two weeks later and pain is gone. Hopeful for a speedy recovery.”
– Jeff A.
“I was nervous the day of surgery to the point of almost convincing myself I didn’t need the procedure but I went through with it and I am so happy with the results. I woke up in recovery with the same groin pain as if I had been up working all day but as the first week home recov-ering passed, I noticed day by day how the sciatica pain just dwindled away. Glad to say I am pain free. I feel like I got my life back am ready to conquer anything again.”

At my two week follow-up he didn’t make me fill out a how is your pain form. He took the time to talk to me and allowed me to ask questions.

“During pregnancy I began experiencing excruciating pain in both hips. I was told over and over by other physicians it was due to the hormone, relaxin, causing my ligaments to loosen in preparation for childbirth. I was in agony continuously all day, every day, to the point I didn’t want to get out of bed. My obstetrician sent me to Dr. Burval thinking the pain may be due to my previous sacral fracture. Upon x-ray Dr. Burval diagnosed me as having transient osteo-porosis from pregnancy. It was only the 3rd case he had seen in over 15 years of practice. I became walker bound and had to deliver via c-section or I would have fractured my pelvis during a vaginal delivery. I came back for my f/u today, and found that my bones have completely gone back to a nor-mal state. I am up walking and pain free. I am more than thankful and blessed to have found someone with Dr. Burval's expertise!!!”
