Dr. Burroughs grew up in Colorado Springs graduating from Air Academy High School. He then graduated with honors from the University of Texas. He completed his medical degree in 1993 at the highly-selective Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine) in Maryland on a full Air Force scholarship. His skills and abilities in ophthalmic plastic surgery were recognized early in his training, and he was encouraged by his residency professors to seek subspecialty oculoplastic surgery training. In 2004, he received a meritorious service medal and honorable discharge from the USAF. He then completed a highly selective 2-year American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery fellowship in Facial and Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery in Salt Lake City, Utah. He served as Chief of Oculoplastics and Orbital Surgery at the Salt Lake VA hospital, and as an Adjunct Professor of Ophthalmology for the University of Utah. Dr. Burroughs was heavily recruited by numerous academic centers and his Utah practice enticed him to permanently join, but he instead returned to Colorado Springs in 2006. Since being back in Colorado, he was appointed an adjunct professor for Rocky Vista University Osteopathic Medical School.

He views his practice of medicine as a calling and treats patients across the entire economic spectrum.

His professional mission is to strive daily to serve his patients as if he is serving the Lord (Col. 3:23-24).
