Patient Testimonials

  • "I have recovered 100% and was back to slalom water skiing months after surgery as a direct result of the care I received from Dr. Burgess and his staff at Hinsdale Orthopedics. Even though you hope to never need the care of an Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Burgess would be the one I call. I trust him, his ability and his staff! - John Z."
  • "Dr. Burgess and his team at Hinsdale Orthopedic made my experience with them about my treatment and recovery. It was not about insurance or money. He has a super friendly professional manner, the same for his team, especially Michelle. This allowed me to relax and get better during what was a very frustrating and painful period in my life. I have already recommended Dr. Burgess to a neighbor with an ankle or foot problem and I will definitely do it again, especially with my sports teammates. -Steve R."
