I found Dr. Burra more than 10 years ago while doing a comprehensive search for the best orthopedic surgeons in the Chicago area specializing in shoulder surgery. Since then Dr. Burra has repaired both of my shoulders' torn rotator cuff (with complications). I have found him to be totally competent technically, honest, trustworthy, and with great 'bedside manner'. I have had excellent outcomes in both shoulders I can't recommend him highly enough.

I had rotator cuff surgery about 10 years ago . The surgery was performed by a highly renowned orthopedic doctor that is also a doctor for professional sports teams in Chicago. The repairs were not successful. Late in 2018 my physical therapist recommended that I see Dr Burra. I had rotator cuff in early 2019 and it was very successful. Dr Burra is the best orthopedic doctor that I have ever dealt with. He has an excellent bedside manner and takes the time to answer any questions that you may have. I am very thankful and highly recommend Dr. Burra.

Dr Burra performed Rotator Cuff and Bicep Tenodesis on me. Excellent results. After 6 months of physical therapy I am back to gym and performing all my normal activities without any issues. Dr Burra is a straight shooter when it comes to recovery plan. PA Drew was extremely knowledgeable and a good communicator.

I was hurt on a construction job. I had 3 tears and a chipped off bone in my shoulder. Severe rotator cuff injury. I read the reviews on Dr. Burra and decided to go with him. Out of a 5 start rating I would give him 100. He is outstanding as a surgeon! He is patient, laid back and has a great sense of humor. I had to take a test to see if I had the capacity to return to full heavy construction. The testing facility was amazed that I could return in just 6 months. Between Dr. Burra and his P.T. team I am at full capacity. If you are looking for the best Dr. Burra is it.

Dr. Burra is an excellent Orthopaedics surgeon. He repaired my left shoulder rotator cuff back in December of 2018. He and his staff, Drew & Caitlin are very caring. On my initial visit I met with all three of them and they set my wife and I at ease, explaining the procedure thoroughly. During my follow up visits they monitored and directed my physical therapy. I have regained full use of my shoulder and was recently released. I’m very pleased with my results and highly recommend Dr. Burra and his team.

Dr. Burra and his staff are terrific! He repaired my right shoulder and my right knee, and the results couldn't be better. He and his staff are very knowledgeable and professional. Every time I've visited his office has been a wonderful experience. He will take as much time necessary to answer your questions and review your test results with you. You will not find a better, and more friendly Doctor.
