Patient Testimonial 2017-06-07

Dr. Burval was an amazing surgeon and a life saver. After total disk replacement, I was back on my feet after only a day or two, and have been pain free since!

Patient Testimonial 2017-06-02

I was a little scared of having surgery of the spine but had no alternative to pain relief and right after surgery I was completely pain free and felt like a million bucks. I would recomend the surgery for anyone who is a little scared of spinal surgery you will not regret it.

Dr. Burval did a wonderful job on my disc replacement. Kept me well informed throughout the entire process. I would recommend this guy to anyone having ortho issues. A plus. Thank you!

Dr. Burval has been my doctor since I was a teenager. He understands my back well enough to provide the best care possible. He noticed my bulging discs and operated right away. He’s wonderful.

Dr Burval is the best. My whole exerience has been life changing. The excrutiating pain of a pinched nerve is gone and my recovery has been good. I would recommend Dr Burval to anyone with a neck problem.

Patient Testimonial 2017-03-17

Life changing surgery! I had constant back pain and leg cramps for over a year. Literally woke up from surgery without symptoms and getting better every day. Thanks Dr. Burval and team for changing my life for the better!

Patient Testimonial 2017-03-13

I started with a personal trainer because I reached my limit with PT with my Medicare. I explained my issues with my back and sciatica in my legs to my trainer. In a weeks time I saw improvement with my pain. Im working on my core strength, exercising, watching my food portions and Im doing so much better and am pain free. I was able to walk 2 miles in my neighborhood with no pain. I was able to stand and cook from 10:00am to 10:00 pm with no pain. Its amazing what the right kind of exercise and core work will do for your body and your pain level. I dont like to exercise but now that I have seen such positive results and feel so much better I will keep up the work. Its a life style change but I know I can do it and I know the results are so positive. I appreciate Dr.Burval and all the options he gave him for my care. He was also very good about explaining exactly what was wrong with my back and legs. I would recommend him to my friends or anyone who needs an orthopedist.

I am so very pleased with my surgical outcome. I was in tremendous pain and it is now gone. Dr. Burval was caring and spent the time with family members and always gave full explanations.
