Dr. Barba replaced both of my hips last year. Before having my hips replaced, I was in pain 24/7 due to osteoarthritis. Now, after having my hips replaced, I have not had any trouble with my recovery from surgery or with my new joints. I am in my 20s and lead an active life, working as a welder and riding horses as a pastime, so I can assure anyone considering Dr. Barba as a surgeon that he is good at his job because I would not have been able to continue my lifestyle had I not gotten replacements. His bedside manner is great and I would recommend him to anyone looking for joint replacement.
