Dr. Harrell offers a wide range of treatment options – from conservative to surgical – to make sure you are comfortable with your care while experiencing the best outcomes.

Compassionate Care

Dr. Harrell shares a compassion and understanding with his patients that comes from his own personal experience. After being born with a left clubfoot, he had it conservatively and surgically treated while an infant.

“As I grew up, I also sought treatment from an orthopedic surgeon for knee pain. It was through both experiences and continual positive outcomes that made me want to help others, particularly with their feet,” he says.

In fact, Dr. Harrell had such positive outcomes that he was able to play collegiate basketball at Presentation College.

Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Harrell enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, being outdoors, watching movies and playing sports, especially basketball, football, tennis and golf.
