I have had hip pain for 3 years prior and was told I would probably need a hip replacement. I have had a knee replacement in same leg and want to put it off if possible. Pain is unbearable so I saw Dr. Harris for a second opinion. Thinks hip arthroscopic surgey should help and hopefully prolong the need for a replacement.

I had never experienced a Baker's cyst before. When this popped up, I'm glad I was referred to see Dr. Harris. He knows his stuff! Dr. Mulka did a great job of draining it and it all healed, swollen knee and Baker's cyst. Thank you for taking such good care of me. Hopefully, I won't have any reason to see you all again!

Sometimes the waiting is long, but mostly well worth the wait. Dr. Harris is always kind, but very straight with his information/answers. He doesn't give false hope, but explains the true possibilities...….good or not. He encourages and well as educates paitents about what they are going thru. Answers might not be what we WANT to hear, but what we NEED to hear......so we have accurate information and motivation. So glad that a dear friend referred him to me, but only after my initial Orthopedic experience somewhere else in town was very discouraging. So glad I came here!

Dr. Harris makes himself available to his patients, is thorough, provides options and truly cares about his patients. Dr. Harris has performed two procedures at different times for me, a tricep reattachment at the elbow 2013 and a dorsal compartment release2015. Both procedures were outpatient surgery, within days I was doing regular daily activities, a few months and I was pressing 500 pounds again. Currently I see Dr. Harris for a knee issue which at some point will require a replacement, for now Dr. Harris is exploring every option before surgery. Cortisone shot, viscosupplementation treatment, bone cement. Dr. Harris was and is my first call for knee and elbow concerns.

Dr. Harris was very knowledgeable and took the time to discuss with me all of my options regarding my knee pain. I was anxious at the thought of surgery, but he gave me so many conservative therapy options and gave me so much reassurance that surgery was not necessary at this time. Thankful to know that he gave me all the options available to deal with my injury.
