Meet Dr. Harris

Dr. Harris grew up in Irondale, AL and attended medical school at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

He practiced in Tuscaloosa for two years before returning home to Birmingham.  Dr. Harris has special interest in minimally invasive antireflux, gallbladder, and hernia surgery as well as surgery for cancer.  He practices all areas of general surgery including surgery for endocrine disorders of the thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands.  He also has extensive experience with colorectal, stomach, and breast cancer surgery.  He uses a minimally invasive approach whenever feasible including use of the da Vinci robotic.  Dr. Harris is certified by the American Board of Surgery.  He operates at St. Vincent's Birmingham, St. Vincent's East, and Grandview hospitals.

Outside of work, he is involved at his church and enjoys the gym, working on his house, and spending time with his family.
