Dr. Major Benjamin Burch is pleased to join the team at Oxford Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. Dr. Burch is a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon specializing in the treatment of spinal disorders in adults and adolescents. Treating all disorders of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, he takes great care in providing his patients with personalized treatment plans tailored to their needs. These plans may include conservative, non-operative treatments as well as surgical interventions. His practice focuses on patients who suffer from conditions such as disc herniations, disc degeneration, spinal arthritis, spine trauma, tumors, infections, and spinal deformity. He has a special interest in the care of spinal conditions in athletes, and serves as orthopaedic team physician for Ole Miss Athletics and Delta State University Athletics. In addition to treating spinal conditions, Dr. Burch also specializes in the treatment of traumatic injuries involving the extremities, including fractures, dislocations, infections, limb preservation and deformities. Dr. Burch utilizes state-of-the-art technology and minimally invasive surgical techniques to restore function to his patients and allow for the return to an active and healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Burch received his medical degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham Marnix E. Heersink School of Medicine. It was during this time that Dr. Burch discovered his passion for orthopaedic surgery and caring for patients with disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Throughout his orthopaedic surgery residency at the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute on the campus of the University of Missouri, Dr. Burch was fortunate to train under national leaders in orthopaedics, subsequently developing a subspecialty interest in spine surgery. His training included extensive exposure to highly specialized techniques in orthopaedic trauma, oncology, limb preservation and tissue restoration. Dr. Burch has completed many research studies resulting in multiple peer-reviewed publications in major academic journals.

Following his residency, Dr. Burch completed a comprehensive fellowship in spine surgery at the prestigious Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. During his fellowship, Dr. Burch underwent intensive training in the treatment of complex spinal disorders. Along with treating spinal trauma patients at one of New England’s busiest level I trauma centers, Dr. Burch maintained an elective spine practice taking care of patients from across the region. Dr. Burch’s training exposed him to many cutting-edge surgical techniques and technologies, such as computer-navigated and robotic-assisted surgery, which he is excited to bring to his patients in Oxford.
