A board-certified orthopedic surgeon with additional certification in hand surgery, Dr. Barnard treats hand and shoulder injuries. He specializes in upper-extremity problems, such as acute trauma and sports injuries, as well as issues resulting from chronic arthritic conditions.
Dr. Barnard enjoys rebuilding what is broken, no matter how challenging the problem. He looks at how things work, exposes any issues and then fixes them. He performs total joint replacements and is one of the few surgeons in Florida able to do total wrist replacements.
He completed his medical training at Creighton University (Omaha, Nebraska) and his residency in orthopedic surgery at Madigan Army Medical Center (Tacoma, Washington). He then performed a fellowship in hand surgery at Walter Reed Army Medical Center (Bethesda, Maryland).
Dr. Barnard served 11 years in the U.S. Army, treating war wounds of active-duty soldiers, before joining Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic. Since then, he has worked with Central Florida patients for more than two decades and has enjoyed being able to follow their long-term successes.
