Paul Harriott, M.D.
Dr. Paul Harriott has been practicing in Lewes, Delaware since 2001. He has fellowship training in Sports Medicine, arthroscopic shoulder and knee surgery. Dr. Harriott regularly performs rotator cuff surgery, shoulder instability surgery, knee ACL reconstruction, and meniscus and cartilage surgeries. He also performs joint replacement surgery, and other general orthopaedic surgery.
Dr. Harriott’s career, however, started somewhat unconventionally. He obtained his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University. Following that, he then completed a Masters in Mechanical Engineering and then a Masters in Business Administration. After graduation, he worked for Perkin-Elmer on the Hubble Space Telescope, and later for Hewlett-Packard designing medical ultrasound devices. This work is what sparked his interest in medicine. He attended Harvard Medical School, followed by a residency in orthopaedics at Vanderbilt University. His Sports Medicine fellowship was at Pennsylvania Hospital, where he assisted in the care of professional team athletes of the Philadelphia Eagles, Flyers, Kixx soccer team, Camden River Sharks baseball team, and Rowan football team.
In his free time, Dr. Harriott enjoys restoring sports and classic cars, and driving them occasionally on the track. He also enjoys windsurfing on the bay, cooking, and gardening.
Dr. Harriott was named to Delaware Today’s Top Docs in 2005 and 2007.
