Focused on providing the best personalized non-operative and operative athlete treatments, his patients are comprised of professional competitors, including motorcycle riders from local club racing circuits to the MotoGP paddock.

“We are very excited to be working with the Meen Motorsports team for the 2013 season. Here at South Valley Orthopedic and Sports Medicine we understand the importance of communicating with an athlete about their particular health needs. I am ready to work very closely with the Meen Motorsports team, providing them with a tailored sports medicine care program, on and off the track,” comments Dr. Harwood.

An expert in the field of joint replacement surgery of the shoulder, hip and knee, Dr. Harwood also works closely with other sports medicine doctors that have extensive ties in the motorcycle racing industry. Currently collaborating with South Valley Orthopedic and Sports Medicine is Dr. Tuan Nguyen, A.T.C. A pioneer in the sports medicine industry, Dr. Nguyen has been a long time innovator in athlete care rehabilitation.
