Dr. Barnett performs neonatal surgery, including congenital and colorectal malformations, thoracic surgery, and oncologic surgery.
Dr. Barnett earned his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and a Master of Science in Human Anatomy from Purdue University, and received his medical education from Wright State University School of Medicine in Dayton.

About his philosophy of care, Dr. Barnett says, “I can think of no greater responsibility than to take care of children. I try to be available to explain things to patients and their parents through any means, making sure they understand a diagnosis, and what to expect with surgery, including drawing pictures and diagrams. I recognize that every child and situation is different, and I do everything I can to help put families at ease during one of the most stressful times in their lives.”
