Location Information


Dr. Burkhardt’s father was a physician, and from an early age, Dr. Burkhardt knew he wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon. The visual nature and mechanics of how things fit together and work as a whole intrigued him and reminded him of how the bones, joints and muscles of the body work together to keep you moving.

Dr. Burkhardt completed his fellowship in adult joint reconstruction and sports medicine at The Florida Knee & Orthopedic Centers at the University of South Florida. In 2016, Dr. Burkhardt performed the region’s first robotics-assisted total knee joint replacement using the Navio Surgical System. Dr. Burkhardt is very excited about the future of this technology and what it means for his patients.

Dr. Burkhardt and his wife have four children. He enjoys a variety of hobbies, including boating, hockey, woodworking, scuba diving, truck restoration and large-species sport fishing. He also has a special interest in youth development hockey in Battle Creek, Michigan, and the surrounding areas.

301 Patient Satisfaction Reviews

The ratings displayed below are an average of all patient responses to the Clinician and Group Practice Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CG-CAHPS) survey.

The CG-CAHPS survey is used by hospitals and medical practices across the country and was developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

Bronson Healthcare’s CG-CAHPS survey is administered by Press Ganey. Surveys are sent to randomly selected Bronson patients after they have had an appointment with a Bronson physician in an outpatient practice setting.

The comments and star ratings you see here reflect the views and opinions of patients who have completed and returned their surveys. Press Ganey independently compiles the data and forwards it to Bronson to be posted.
