"Dr. Barber came highly recommend by a neighbor who had both knees replaced using the ComforMIS system. In turn my wife & myself have recommending Dr. Barber to people on numerous occasions. One person just had his knee replace this month and is considering having the second one also replaced. My next door neighbor (a nurse) is scheduled for Nov. My operation was last august and I received three great benefits which includes no more knee pain, the correction of a bowleg and a 15lb weight loss"

"Dr. Barber did an excellent job on my Conformis knee replacement on 4/30/18. Rehab went very well with no issues. Swelling/pain was not as bad as I expected and was well-controlled with RICE and medication. Lots of physical therapy...very important! I am 14 weeks post-op and back to riding my bike, and back to work full-time with a new knee that feels much better! Highly recommend Dr. Barber."
