About John

John Harris was born and raised in Booneville, AR. The youngest of three siblings, he spent his early years enjoying the outdoors of northwest Arkansas through camping, fishing and hunting.

He graduated from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, where he not only obtained a degree in Industrial Engineering but also fostered a deep love for the Razorbacks. He married his wife, Lincoln Thomas (who is from Arlington, TX) just before he began medical school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, Arkansas. His first son was born during his 3rd year of medical school.

Dr Harris graduated medical school with Honors in Research, and stayed in Little Rock to begin his orthopaedic surgery residency. During these five years, he had two more children, a second boy and his only daughter. After residency, he and his wife moved to Bloomington, Minnesota to complete a sports fellowship with TRIA Orthopaedic Center. During this year, he had the privilege of acting as one of the team physicians for the Minnesota Twins baseball team, the Minnesota Wild hockey team and the Gustavus Adolphus Gusties, a division III college football team. He also had his 4th child, a third son, during his time in Minnesota.

Now, he and Lincoln are very excited to be back in the Arlington/Mansfield area with their four young children. He still enjoys camping, hunting and fishing as well as woodworking in his limited spare time. He is also a huge Dallas Cowboys fan.

Dr. Harris treats a variety of sports injuries from rotator cuff tears and shoulder dislocations to various knee problems. In addition, he loves to perform shoulder and knee replacements. He treats other conditions such as carpal and cubital tunnel, as well as fractures and soft tissue injuries around the body. He has a special interest in complex cartilage and meniscal injuries in the knee.

Dr. Harris’s goal for athletes (and all his patients) is to get them back to their sport or activity as fast and safe as possible.
