Generally speaking, I'd agree that they have some fine docs. When I was living in Springfield, MO and need foot surgery several years ago I felt it was worth the trip to come up to Barnes to have the surgery performed. The problem is, it's a huge operation and you have to filter out which ones are really worthwhile. Also, it sounds like you're working with someone who specializes in pain in general, but not necessarily SCI factors. Fortunately, in St Louis we not only have Barnes but some other good medical options. St Lukes isn't huge, but they have some fine people, as does St Anthonys, where my wife works. Even before we moved to St Louis I also used to take her to Barnes West to see an allergist who did wonders for her compared to the doctors we'd found in the Ozarks.
