    Dr Barker performed spinal fusion to relieve severe pain. I now have a totally fused spine and no pain. Dr. Barker gave me back at least 10 years of life and two inches of height. I recommend Dr. Barker with great confidence.

    I had back surgery 3 months ago. I was in pain for 3 years before surgery. I am now pain free and can do all of the things that I enjoy without pain holding me back. I'm very happy with Dr Barker and his staff.
