I wish I was capable of properly expressing the impact Dr. Barkoh has had on my life. I started having lower back pain that extended down my legs in early 2021 and had seen another doctor multiple times with no results. Dr. Barkoh IMMEDIATELY recognized that an MRI was needed, and the results revealed an enormous synovial cyst in the lumbar region of my spine. Because of its massive size he determined that microdecompression surgery to remove the cyst was the appropriate course of action and the surgery was scheduled as quickly as possible. My surgery experience was outstanding with both the staff and Dr. Barkoh providing all the information necessary to give me peace of mind. The mild incision pain I woke up from post-surgery was the only pain I felt, and I could not believe the absolute absence of the horrific pain I'd had all those months previous. He is absolutely brilliant and truly cares about his patients. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Dr. Barkoh is the best spine surgeon I've dealt with. I've had a previous fusion at L5/S1 and I was having problems at L4/L5. I was in a lot of pain before surgery. He listened to my concerns, we tried other nonsurgical methods first because I was against another back surgery. We finally made the decision to perform the surgery and eventhough I was nervous about the absence of my pain pump after surgery, his method of getting you up and walking really helped. He likes to come in your room and open the curtains if you're in bed, but my recovery was great. My recovery with this second back surgery was so much easier and quicker than my first, which he DID NOT PERFORM. I would recommend him because he listens, explains, great bedside manner, he makes sure the hospital staff gives you what you need and just an overall great Doctor.

Dr. Barkoh recently performed a laminectomy on my L3/L4 lumbar spine vertebrae. He told me it would be a minimal invasive surgery but I had no idea just how minimal it would be. Dr. Barkoh is really up to date with the new procedures for spine surgery. My research on the internet indicating the complete removal of the lamina ended up being old school procedures. When he showed me what he actually did to expand the spinal canal at this site I was speechless. I went from not being able to walk very far without stopping and stretching to virtually pain free walking with the only slight discomfort in the surgical site area. It has only been 2 weeks since surgery and I am already release to proceed with life. How wonderful. I would recommend Dr. Barkoh to anyone experiencing spine issues. Wonderful and amazing doctor.

Dr Barkoh and his staff treated me as though I was a family member and not just another patient. I had a nearly unbearable pain down my left leg which caused by a pinched nerve in my spine. Dr. Barkoh performed spinal surgery to remove the bone and/or cartilage constricting said nerve, and completely ended the pain. And his staff was courteous, friendly and not once did they act like was a nuisance when I called with questions or concerns Five stars out of five for Dr. Barkow and his staff, and I would happily recommend Lone Star Orthopaedics to anyone suffering from a spinal issue like me

I transitioned from Dr. Barkho's previous office and his MA, Courtney remembered me after not seeing them for over a year. So glad he opened an office in the Humble/Kingwood area. Everyone in the office is knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Thanks Courtney, Norma and Victoria. Dr. Barkho is a very accomplished, skilled and caring physician/surgeon. He explains everything and takes time with you. After my successful surgery he came to see me three times during my two days in the hospital which was much appreciated. Recommend Dr. Barkoh with no hesitation.

Dr. Barkoh is a wonderfully skilled surgeon. I had severe back pain that radiated down the front of my leg to my foot. I could not stand straight or walk without limiting. He performed a TLIF and decompression of my nerves and I was up the same day and the pain was gone. Because of the way he performed the surgery (minimally invasive), I was back to work in 2 weeks. He and his staff, Sandra, Courtney and Victoria were awesome. So friendly and responsive. Dr. Barkoh takes his time and answers every question you have and doesn’t rush you. He checked up on me after the surgery! I’m so happy to be pain free! Very accomplished young man and it shows in the results!

Amazing!!! We started with Dr. Barkoh before he came to HCA, and what should have been a confusing nightmare, was the easiest transition ever. Thanks to him and his amazing back up, namely Courtney, we never missed a step. Communication and follow thru is above and beyond. Courtney is always upbeat and positive and makes the appointments a much better experience. My husband's condition is only going to get worse as time goes on, but Dr. Barkoh gives us a fighting chance. He is a very kind and patient man. We will be patient's forever.

I am eternally grateful to Dr. Barkoh and his staff. I am completely healed of my pain and can now continue my life without medication, walking aids or having to stay home. For about a year, my lower back pain had become unbearable. For several years, it has been progressing and I worked as a landscaper so I assume that hard work is what caused my damage over the years. I went to so many doctors and countless Chiropractic appointments all resulting in no relief from my pain. I was put on one medicine after another and this only made my days foggy and lazy. I saw Lone Star Orthopaedic Institute while going to the Records department to get my x-ray results that yet another doctor ordered and I went in, told them my problem and asked if they could help me. They made me an appointment for the next day and Dr. Barkoh saw me and my x-rays and explained what was wrong and said it was a very common injury and easy to fix. I felt very comfortable with him and his explanation. God Bless
