First diagnosed by Dr. Harwood in 2013 with osteoarthritis and told will need hip replacement. I put it off for about 8 years. Pain grew increasingly more severe over the years, had another consultation with Dr. Harwood in March 2020, both hips now would need to be replaced, decided to have the replacement, originally scheduled for April 2020, but because of Covid, elective surgeries were postponed. Ended up having double hip replacement June 2020. The night of the surgery was up walking with a walker and the next morning also, was released that afternoon. Used a walker and cane for a total of a week. No pain, slight tightness in the hamstrings but overall felt awesome. Been 7 months and feeling great, walking and bending with no pain. Wish I had done the replacement much sooner. Thank you Dr. Harwood

Worst attitude of any medical professional I have ever encountered. When faced with additional questions his response "I'm just the carpenter". He seemed to care more about his ego than his patient. I do not recommend him for any procedure.

I had a hip replacement one month ago. Dr. Harwood was excellent. I am recovering well. I am grateful that my arthritis is gone.

Just had a replacement of the partial knee replacement Dr. Harwood did 18 months ago (with a different doctor who specializes in doing that). 15 months post-surgery, Dr. Harwood told me that there was nothing wrong and that I had a hard time with pain. After most recent surgery, new MD said the partial was a complete mess--not aligned and digging into the bone. He said it was a wonder I had been able to walk at all on it.
