At the age of 38, I was told I had arthritis in my hip, and my only option was a hip replacement. I ignored that advice. Dr. Barba was highly recommended by a close personal friend. I met with Dr. Barba as a second opinion shortly before my 42nd birthday. Being a young person for this type of operation, I was reluctant, but not being able to live with the unbearable pain any longer, I decided it was time. I wish I would have done this years ago! Dr. Barba has literally changed my life. I am almost 44, have had NO pain, I have full range of motion, and I couldn’t be happier with Dr. Barba – his skill & his precision. My scar is minimal. I don’t even feel this hip. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Barba, and I’m grateful for how he changed my life!
