Dr. Harris did both my left rotator cuff (12-8-05) and my right rotator cuff (6-18-09). Excellent recovery. Dr. Harris had me in therapy within 22 hours from both surgeries. My Pastor told me he was having rotator cuff surgery and I immediately prayed his surgeon would be Dr. Howard Harris! AND he is. I have referred many friends to Dr. Harris because of his expertise in shoulder problems. They have all thanked me. I am blessed. Ann B. Kelley

Dr. Harris did shoulder surgery on me. He inserted 2 screws, reattached the tendon, sewed up the rotator cuff and sent me to physical therapy the day after the surgery. What impressed me the most was how the people at physical therapy praised Dr. Harris. Because of my age the healing has been slower than I would have liked, but I now have no trouble and have greater range of movement than on the other shoulder.
