Dr. Barry is a pioneer in the field of minimally invasive techniques in the spine. He has assisted in the development and improvement of many state of the art procedures currently being used in spine surgery
With a focus on minimally invasive techniques for treating disorders of the spine, Dr. Barry is able to provide for his patients a quicker, less painful recovery. Dr. Barry uses the latest computer-assisted surgical procedures, including the CyberKnife, to perform operations through very small incisions, minimizing pain and recovery time. Commonly used for treatment of tumors in the brain or the base of the skull, CyberKnife stereotactic radiosurgery uses computer technology to allow physicians to deliver radiation with unprecedented precision. CyberKnife is frameless, eliminating the need for the uncomfortable screws or frames previously used to immobilize patients during treatment.
