Title: Has anyone seen Dr. Cris D. Barnhouse?
Post by: David 69 on May 26, 2006, 04:49:58 AM
Hello,
Has anyone see Dr. Barnhouse?  I have heard a little about Dr. Barnhouse in Overland Park Kansas and I was just wondering if anyone has seen him before and what their impression was of him.  It has been suggested that I see him for a second opinion on my knee if he will see me.

I haven't seen him, but my doctor is at the same place he is.  I highly recommend the place.  I saw Dr. Browne there.  It's a nice facility, very friendly.

Did Dr Browne do your latest surgery ? Are you going to do your rehab at KCOI ?

Dr. Browne did do my last surgery (microfracture) a week ago.  I have not started rehab.  I am only on a CPM machine for 6-8 hours a day.  I'm instructed to use crutches until I see him again on June 20.  I don't think I'll be doing rehab up at KCOI.  We have a duplex in Lee's Summit, but I actually live 2 hours away from Lee's Summit.  I'll probably be doing my rehab there if I'm allowed to choose.  He said I'd be in the pool doing some therapy in about 6 weeks on my own I think.  Luckily my neighbor has a pool. 

Sorry Cat, it's not Toto.  I love dogs though.  I may not have a Toto, but I have a black lab named Hobo.

Oops, I pushed the wrong button.  Let's try this again.

Pam,

As I was trying to type before pushing the wrong button, I won't be back up to KCOI until June 20th.  I'm not allowed to start rehab yet.  I am on the CPM, but no formal PT until later.  He wants me into a pull I think first and then to the land therapy.  I was going to tell him all about the pool therapy that is down here where I am.  They have a pool that goes up and down and has a treadmill on the bottom.  It's pretty cool.  The patient walks or hobbles to the platform (which is actually the bottom of the pool) and then is lowered to whatever depth the therapist wants.  I've been in that pool several times, the only problem is with scheduling.  Only one person allowed at a time.  I don't know if he'll allow me to have this kind of formal therapy or not.  We'll see on the 20th.

I head back up to Lees Summit tomorrow afternoon and then I'm heading to Colorado on Wednesday.  My parents are thinking of strapping me into that CPM machine as we head through Kansas to try and get some hours on it.  I'd rather plug in a DVD.  I best be going.  Good luck with everything.

Hi Kris

Hey, give me a PM when you go to KCOI , maybe I'll see you. I'm usually there M-W-F at noon.

Have fun going to Colorado. Someone posted one time that they plugged their CPM in the cigarette lighter to use in car or something to that affect. LOL. Your pool therapy sounds wonderful.  ;D
