As of 2018, Dr. Burnett is treating Parkinson’s disease and tremors with robot-assisted asleep deep brain stimulation (DBS).

He has been awarded two research grants from the National Institutes of Health for his work in neurophysiology and the development of non-invasive blood flow monitors to treat patients with brain and spinal injuries. He has authored more than 30 peer-reviewed manuscripts and multiple book chapters.

Dr. Burnett currently sees patients at our NeuroTexas locations in Austin-Eiger Road, Dripping Springs, Round Rock and San Marcos.

    Dr. Burnett has always, ALWAYS, demonstrated a great deal of care for me and his desire to eliminate the pain I have in my back. After two surgeries, I'm still in pain but I think he's done the very best he can to stop it. I've always felt comfortable around him, able to discuss anything without fear.

    He had done an ACDF surgery on me in 2017. He did such a great job, I wanted to come back to him. I remembered from my last visit, that he explained what the MRI was showing and told me upfront what the solution had to be. That's the main reason why I chose him. I knew he would tell me if I would need surgery or not. And he's very caring. :)
