Learn about Dr. Barkoh

Care Philosophy

Dr. Barkoh believes most spine problems can be successfully treated with conservative, nonsurgical methods. But, when surgical intervention is needed, he utilizes the most advanced technology to perform minimally invasive procedures that allow patients to have a faster recovery with less post-operative pain.

"My passion is providing exceptional medical care. I carefully listen to my patients to understand their symptoms, how their symptoms impact their lives, and what their treatment goals are. The majority of patients can be treated with conservative, nonsurgical methods. Surgery is always the last option; but when necessary, I utilize minimally invasive techniques so patients have a faster recovery with less post-operative pain."
