I would recommend Dr. Yarbrough because of his experience, bedside manner and personal attention to your problem. I had a hip replacement and can not speak more highly of Dr. Yarbrough. His personal concern for my safety and health before, during and after my operation was exemplary. I can't say enough about Dr. Yarbrough attitude concerning my health and well being.

Two and a half months ago I've had a total hip replacement,which exceeded all my expectations - on fourths day after the surgery I was already walking on my neighborhood without walker or cane! After more than two years of the excruciating pain and limping I was totally pain free in a week, and walking without limping 3 miles on Big Creek Greenway trail in two weeks after the surgery. Now I am walking over 5 miles every day and going to gym three times a week; gained almost all my flexibility.

I had a total knee replacement with excellent results. I highly recommend Dr. Yarbrough. He and his team are thorough in explaining process and expectations. I was up and walking the same day. Pain management was carefully adjusted to fit my individual needs. I am now 2 1/2 months out from surgery and very happy with renewed physical activity.
