"Dr Burkett is an excellent surgeon. I can now enjoy my favorite hobby, baking. My hand hurt so bad that I was unable to do the things I enjoyed I could not ride my bicycle as I could not grip the handlebars, I love to cook and bake and I was struggling with it. The best decision I could make was to have Dr Burkett operate"
