About Me

As a former collegiate wrestler who underwent four knee surgeries, I am passionate about helping athletes and active individuals ward off the effects of old injuries and combat the effects of time on the injured joint. I have special clinical and research interests in using orthobiologic treatments that restore health to injured tissue, with the goal of stopping the damaging joint process. My goal for each patient is to eliminate sore joints, so they can maximize their quality of life.

    Dr. Baria is that perfect combination of smart, efficient, and personable. I should have added skillful. Truly perfect for this position!

    Dr. Baria is great! He walked in and proclaimed "great to see you!" even though it was very 1st visit with him. He delivered the bad news about how arthritis my joints are in a positive, understandable way, and discussed treatment options. This may sound crazy but each time (2) I have seen him he's commented on the T shirt I was wearing showing I wasn't just another patient.
