Meet Dr. Burke

Leading acid reflux/Gerd surgeon in Colorado area.

Dr. Jocelyn Burke knows the process of considering a surgical procedure can be very stressful for any patient. As a surgeon, her job is to determine when surgery can help improve a patient’s quality of life, and then provide expertise and compassionate care in helping patients understand their condition, surgical options, and outcomes. She makes her patients the center of her attention and is with them through every step of the process.

Her areas of interest are gastroesophageal reflux disease, diaphragmatic hernias, gastroparesis, and abdominal wall repair. She brings experience in LINX placement and Robotic surgery to the practice. She focuses on restoring a functional abdominal core in patients with large abdominal hernias and on helping patients regain control over their eating that was previously ruined by reflux disease or gastroparesis.

Dr. Burke is Board Certified in General Surgery and Surgical Critical Care. She is an Associate Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, as well as a member of the Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons, the American Foregut Society, and the Association of Women Surgeons.

Dr. Jocelyn Burke graduated from Pomona College with an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience in 2002. She received her M.D. from the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University in 2009 after completing the Dartmouth-Brown Joint Medical Program. During her time in medical school, Jocelyn spent a year working in Santiago, Dominican Republic at the Hospital Regional Universitario José María Cabral y Baez as the local coordinator of a medical exchange program and as an assistant in the Clinica de Enfermedades de Immunologia (Clinic for Immunologic Illnesses), helping with resident education and medical care of HIV/AIDS patients. She completed her internship and residency in general surgery from 2009-2016 at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, WI, during which she spent 2 years in a basic and clinical science research fellowship. She completed a Fellowship in Pediatric and Adult Surgical Critical Care at Northwestern University and Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, IL in 2017.
