I was referred to Dr. Yarbrough when I had arthritis in both hips. He was very knowledgeable and kind when I first consulted with him. Ultimately, I needed hip replacements which he did in the past 8 months. Both surgeries were very successful, and I am grateful to Dr. Yarbrough for relieving my pain. I highly recommend this gifted surgeon who is also very kind. His office staff are also the best.

I suffered with hip issues for a year. Met with Dr. Yarbrough and his staff to find out what the issue was. Hip replacement was suggested and had the procedure done in October walked the next day without a walker. Went skiing the following February, how's that for a recovery. I owe it all to Dr. Yarbrough, his staff and PT. I would certainly recommend Dr. Yarbrough for your hip replacement!!

My knee was in shambles. Dr Yarbrough took out old knee replacement and fixed my crooked leg and now no pain and a straight leg. He is a miracle worker and he is kind. I have a new life. Thank you Dr Yarbrough. God bless you.

Dr. Yarbrough bedside manor is terrible. Furthermore, I did not get the impression that he looks a the whole picture just what’s in front of him. His assistant Allison Baker is very compassionate.

I had my right knee replaced. Dr Yarbrough was very thorough in explaining the whole process from surgery to rehab. As a result I was well prepared for pre-surgical conditioning as well as the recovery and rehab process. Being informed has helped me shorten the rehab process considerably. I have felt that the entire Resurgens staff has taken a personal interest in my well being throughout this process.

Excellent. I'm so thankful I found him and that he was the one to do my surgery. I can walk thanks to him. Wonderful bedside manner. Attentive, compassionate and makes you feel like you really matter. Now to get the other knee done. I won't be letting anyone but him do it! He's the best.

Dr. Yarbrough has replaced both of my knees over the past three years. My first surgery was the easiest as far as recovery is concerned. The scar is not noticeable. The second surgery was a normal recovery time and is still less than 6 months from surgery. He is a very easy going doctor and puts you at ease on all visits. His staff is friendly and helpful. I am glad I chose him as my doctor.

During hip surgery he damaged nerves leaving my lower leg permanently numb. This happened because of careless positioning of my leg. He took no responsibility and offered no advise of what I could do about the problem. His office did no follow up after 6 months.

I saw Yarbrough after a fall on my behind, he told me I had a pulled muscle and prescribed PT & strengthening the core. It didn't feel stable, so l asked for a gluteal MRI. No, not until after 4-6wks PT, and it would be a lumbar and elective. My GP got me a pelvic MRI based on the radiologist seeing fracture signs at the edge of the lumbar MRI. Sacrum was fractured both sides. Yarbroughs advice on when I could go back to my cleaning job made it worse. Can't understand why he was against MRI.

I had full knee replacement in Oct I'm already walking, movement is excellent. My surgery cut is very neatly done to leave a very light scar. My pain has been minimal except during pt but that's natural Dr Yarbrough manages my pain levels and I can call ask him if any questions He even called me night before surgery to make sure i understood everything and ease my mind. I am having him do my other knee after Jan. Highly recommend, very caring doctor

I had a knee replacement in late May 2017. My condition was bone-on-bone in the knee. I have had minimal pain and is very pleased with the care and results. Dr. Yarbrough is very competent and treats his patients as one who cares.

I went in for a hip replacement. The first thing I noticed upon arrival was the nature with which you are greeted…very professional but also very personal. Met with the staff to go through all of the pre op testing, x-rays etc. Having the hip replacement done by Dr Yarbrough was the best decisions in my life. He and his team gave me my life back. I no longer have chronic hip pain and am back to activities I use to do years and years ago…..and now without pain. Awesome covers it all !!

Dr. Yarbrough had replace my right hip on April 10, 2017. A little over 3 weeks later I am cutting the grass, walking the dog and climbing stairs without a problem. I was a little discouraged the first week but if you follow the exercise program things can improve quickly. My limp is gone, the pain is gone and another week or so I feel my life will be where I was hoping it would be. I would recommend Dr Yarbrough to anyone that is needing a hip replacement.
