Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Barba "I always knew I wanted to be a doctor and no matter what the reason for your appointment, I look forward to our visit. It is the people that are my motivation to be in healthcare. As an orthopedic surgeon I chose to further subspecialize in joint replacement because I have a hard time with failure. Replacement of an arthritic joint is almost always a victory. I take great pleasure in helping people return to the activities in life they enjoy!"
