Dr Barrett did orthoscopic surgery on my knee. I was walking in 2 days and it has been great for years.

Dr. Barrett diagnosed a need for a hip replacement. I had struggled with knee pain and shin pain for over a year. And another orthopedic surgeon failed to diagnose. The hip replacement solved my knee and shin pain.
