Ben Harper, M.D.
Cool fact about Dr. Ben Harper: He met his wife while working as a wrangler in Wyoming.

Orthopedic surgery seemed the perfect combination of a challenging and rewarding professional career that still allowed me to work with my hands.  When not at work I enjoy spending time with my wife and my daughter.  We enjoy gardening and cooking as a family.  My daughter and I keep a standing “date” on Saturday morning when I’m not on call, which usually winds up being a trip to Tractor Supply and the donut shop.  Occasionally, I may sneak off to the range for a round or two of trap.
