"2 1/2 years post hip replacement I would highly recommend Dr Barber for hip or knee replacement. I underwent hip replacement at the age of 41 and have not had any problems since. I am 43 now. My mother underwent knee replacement approx. 4 years ago and is also doing very well."

"Total Knee Replacement Entire staff both professional and caring. Support both before, during, and after my procedure were all one could ask for. My procedure was complicated being the result of a motorcycle accident with 2 previous surgeries. Dr. Barber assured me he could handle the additional complications and he did. Recovery has been swift and progress has been steady."

"Dr Barber has a very friendly and approachable manner and does a nice job of explaining treatment options. He did my wife's knee replacement surgery with excellent results, and he is preparing to perform the same surgery on me in the near future. Based on my wife's experience, I am very confident that I will also have a positive outcome."

"Dr. Barber was recommended to me for 2 years & finally the bone on bone in both knees became unbearable for me to walk normal. I called a friend who knew Dr. Barber, asked her advice, and the rest is history. I had my bilateral knee replacement surgery on 11-5-18 using the new TaylorMade Knees by ConforMis, went back to work on the 6th week post surgery, and moved back 2 weeks ago to 2 sets of stairs in my townhome, ugh, but getting better day by day. I have recommended him to many people!"
