EBJ Proliance Surgeons (A.K.A Everett Bone & Joint)

Dr. Howard Barker, MD


Personal Statement

I am lucky – I love what I do! I was drawn to orthopedics early in life due to my own multiple sports injuries. Now I can treat others (and myself!) to help them get back to the life they love. As a fellowship trained foot and ankle surgeon, most of my practice is from the thigh down. However, I still love to take care of shoulder problems as well. I look forward to meeting you and helping with your quest of a healthier life.

My wife and I are very involved with our church. We love to ride our tandem bicycles with our children. Fishing (not usually catching!) in the sound for the elusive salmon occupies many Saturdays.

Patient Testimonials

"Doctor Barker is the nicest guy. We brought our older son Chandler to see him with a foot issue. He quickly made him feel at ease and thoroughly explained what was going on and a referral that helped alot."
