I started having hip problems at age 52 and went to several doctors in another state, who all told me I was too young for surgery(since “hips wear out.”) When I moved to Illinois and connected with Dr. Barba at 62, he said “What are you waiting for? Let’s do it.” Thank goodness!! I had the right hip done several months later and when the left hip started going bad about 2 years after that, I had that done right away rather than suffer 10 years with it. I feel wonderful!!! I’m walking like I did when I was in my 20’s. I’m a teacher, and I can’t tell you how great it feels to walk down the halls at school and feel so YOUNG. I have no pain or noticable restriction of movement and can sleep comfortably on my side or on my back. Dr. Barba performed two modern miracles for me. He was business-like but friendly at the same time, and really knows what he is doing. Thank you, Dr.
