"Mr. Barrett has improved my quality of life significantly by giving me a reverse total shoulder replacement. Due to the poor condition of my old shoulder joint Mr. Barrett used a specially made 3D printed shoulder joint that was manufactured from measurements taken from recent scans and now, some 5 months post op, I no longer suffer from shoulder pain and I have an excellent range of movement and strength in what was previously a very weak joint. Mr. Barrett’s attention to detail has been impressive throughout and I have received excellent pre and post-operative care. To anyone in need of reconstructive shoulder surgery I would strongly recommend Mr. Barrett and I am very grateful for his advice, expertise and impressive surgical skills."
