I had to have a revision shortly after my Birmingham Hip Resurfacing. It was never right and ended up gouging my femoral neck and poisoning my blood. The decision to use this device was made rather abruptly and without much consideration by Dr. Barber; he had never met me before and decided within 20 minutes that this was my best option. When I contacted him about the need for revision confirmed by other doctors (3 years later), he was less than interested.

I was happy to find doctor Barber I'm a forty year old female with severe arthritis and doctor Barber help me when no one else would. Just had my Sergey on the 20th of Dec.2010 and so far I'm very pleased with the results. What could be better than no more pain and getting the quality of life back. :O)

I have had 2 knee replacements. The right knee was done by Dr. Barber years ago. I have had constant pain since this surgery and he is not at all sympathetic, although his nurse is very kind. He is arrogant.

Dr. Barber is probably one of the best hip replacement surgeons in Northern California. Highly qualified, very easy to talk to, and extremely well informed. I had both hips done in the last three years, and just started skiing again. I'm in my 60's. He gave me my life back!
