With an unwavering commitment to his speciality, the doctor is board-certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease, and interventional cardiology by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).

Cardiology is a branch of medicine that deals with the disorders of the heart, as well as some parts of the circulatory system. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease, and electrophysiology. Cardiologists are doctors who diagnose, assess, and treat patients with diseases and defects of the heart and blood vessels (the cardiovascular system).

An authority in his field, Dr. Burjonroppa was recognized at the ACC annual convocation held in New Orleans (March 2011) with the Young Author achievement award and was presented a plaque at the JACC editors meeting. His manuscript was published in the prestigious JACC interventions. 

He is involved in bringing state-of-the-art treatment to the community in Fort Worth.
