Dr. Brandon Burris is Board Certified by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. He specializes in sports medicine, arthroscopy, shoulder, elbow and knee conditions, platelet rich plasma (PRP), cartilage surgery and general orthopaedics and sees patients in the Marietta, Hiram and Woodstock offices.

Dr. Burris received his Medical Degree from Emory University in Atlanta following a Bachelor of Science Degree, Magna Cum Laude, from the University of Georgia. He completed his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of South Florida where he was selected to serve as an Administrative Chief Resident. After residency, he then completed a Sports Medicine Fellowship at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York, NY, home to the oldest hospital based sports medicine fellowship in the nation. During his fellowship, he received additional training on minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgery techniques for procedures that previously required traditional open surgery.

Dr. Burris has served as an assistant team physician for professional sports teams including the New York Jets Football Team and the New York Islanders Hockey Team. He is currently the Head Team Physician for the Atlanta Blaze Major League Lacrosse Team, Kennesaw State Women's Basketball and Lacrosse Teams, and Harrison High School.  He has written several research articles and given national presentations on various sports medicine and orthopaedic topics including shoulder instability, distal biceps ruptures, and orthopaedic trauma. He enjoys treating elite athletes as well as recreational participants and works to quickly and safely return them to the activities they enjoy. Dr. Burris is an advocate for patient education and insists the patient be an active contributor to treatment planning based on their preferences and expectations.

Dr. Burris lives in Atlanta with his wife, Audrey and son, George. He enjoys watching UGA football, playing golf, and traveling in his spare time.
