Dr. Burgess is a board-certified podiatric surgeon who specializes in foot and ankle surgery. He joined the Hinsdale Orthopaedics team in July 2012. His treatment philosophy stresses conservative management and an evidence-based approach to surgical intervention when indicated.

With an emphasis on minimally invasive techniques, he frequently returns his patients to an active lifestyle in a quick and safe manner.

Dr. Burgess is well-trained in all aspects of the foot and ankle and has a special interest in Achilles tendon disorders, acute and chronic ankle sprains, ankle arthroscopy, bunion correction, heel pain treatment, orthotic therapy, sports-related injuries and trauma/fractures of the foot and ankle.

Dr. Burgess received his podiatry degree from the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in 2009 and his bachelor’s degree, with honors, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Burgess completed a three-year podiatric surgical residency in trauma and reconstructive surgery of the foot and ankle at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center in Chicago.

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Burgess is actively involved with continuing medical education. He dedicates considerable time training medical students, residents and experienced surgeons. He frequently lectures nationwide and is invited faculty at advanced ankle arthroscopy courses and annual scientific conferences.

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.
