Congratulations to Dr. Burton for being named one of Little Rock’s Top Docs 2021 and 2022!
Brian M. Burton M.D. is an Arkansas native. He was raised in Hot Springs where he went to Lakeside public school from kindergarten through 12th grade. His father (a retired urologist), grandfather (a general surgeon), and great-great-uncle (also a physician in Hot Springs) have served patients in central Arkansas since the mid 1930’s. This makes Dr. Burton a 4th generation physician in central Arkansas.
After high school, he went to college at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville from 1995-1999 with a degree in Microbiology. He then moved to Little Rock and worked for Horton’s Orthotics and Prosthetics Lab as an Orthotist making braces for children with disabilities for 3 years before he started medical school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) thinking he would become an Orthopedic surgeon. His third year of medical school changed his thinking and he found his calling in OB/GYN, it was the continuity of care throughout a woman’s life that was the draw for him to this profession. After interviewing for residency positions all over the south east he decided to train at UAMS and has made Little Rock his home.
During his first year of medical school he met Jamie, who would become his wife 3 years later in 2005. She has completed her training and is board certified in Internal Medicine, Hematology and Oncology as of 2013. She is a practicing Hematologist/Oncologist at CARTI where she has a busy practice. They have three children that occupy the rest of their time – Jackson, who was born in 2009, Oliver, who was born in 2011, and Norah, who was born in 2013.
Dr. Burton is also an active member of Fellowship Bible Church where he and his wife teach a 5-year-old Sunday school class. Immanuel Baptist Church was his first church home in Little Rock where he was Baptized in 2006. He later taught a young adult Sunday school class for 3 years before turning the class over to one of his mentors, Dr. Orman Simmons.
Dr. Burton has interests in all obstetrics, including high risk and multiple gestation pregnancies, and is passionate about minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic gynecologic surgery including pelvic floor procedures for urinary symptoms and prolapse. He focuses specifically on rapid recovery and returning to normal daily activities in a timely fashion. He joined the clinic in July 2010 and is currently welcoming new patients.
In Practice Since: 2010
