About Charles V. Burton, MD
In 1974, Dr. Burton, with the assistance of Dr. Charles Ray, founded the Department of Neuroaugmentive Surgery at the Sister Kenny Institute in Minneapolis. Due to the large number of "failed back surgery" patients referred there, this organization created the Low Back Clinic of the Sister Kenny Institute in 1978, which led to the formation of the Institute for Low Back Care in 1981. Prior to joining the Sister Kenny Institute, Dr. Burton served as Associate Professor Neurosurgery at Temple University Health Sciences Center, Philadelphia, PA; and prior to this, as Chief of the combined military neurosurgical unit established at the USPHS Hospital, Seattle, WA.
