“I broke my shoulder in many places and it’s been a long road. I’ve tried to get with Dr. Burkhead every step of the way because I know that he’s one of the best in the world for shoulders. I finally got a part specifically designed for me and I’m due to have it put in next week.”

“Truly adore this fine surgeon, Dr. Burkhead. There is none better in his field. He always has the best of ways beneficial to his patients. I have been given a shoulder replacement and in February another helpful shoulder correction. His PA is top-notch. I must recognize another fine surgeon, Dr. Kitziger. He did. A knee replacement approximately four years ago. Never a problem. Yes, I truly respect these two wonderful surgeons. They have treated me like family. Yes I love both of them.”

“Dr. Burkhead came highly recommended by my wife, she works at Presby and had heard he is one of the best. I looked him up and sure enough, he is. I had read things about shoulder surgery in general on the internet, it's mostly negative but I chose to be positive and that is exactly how it has turned out. The surgery went smoothly. Recovery was smooth as well. I was back to work in a week and working from home I could have done so sooner with one arm pecking at the keyboard. I was most worried about driving again and probably could have after a week but won't know because COVID-19 came during my first week of recovery and I just worked from home, I think I did drive after 3 or 4 weeks and the only thing I recommend is to take it easy. I went to my first checkup about 6 weeks after surgery, everything was coming along, got some exercises to do, did them though not religiously, after the 2nd visit I graduated to the next set of exercises and here I am after 10 weeks. to be continued.....”

“Dr. Burkhead has repaired both shoulders and he has done an outstanding job. He is a an awesome surgeon. And his bedside manner is comically great. It's a 350-mile trip to see him for my surgeries or follow-ups . But he is well worth it.”

“I underwent rotator cuff repair on my left shoulder by Dr. Burkhead. The Carrell Clinic surgery center provided the finest care I have ever received in a hospital. I now judge all hospitals by the standard set by Carrell Clinic, I have had several surgeries at major hospitals in the metroplex and have never received anything that comes close to the care and treatment I received from Carrell Clinic surgery center. Kudos to you and your staff for your level of excellence!”

“Anyone who knows Dr. Burkhead knows that he is the finest shoulder specialist in the world. I have worked with him for at least 20 years on both of my shoulders.
