Dr Flanagan did a hip replacement for me. I am 79 years old and I am still playing tennis. He did an excellent job and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Flanagan was very professional in describing the procedure and the potential outcomes, recovery and what to expect. He was thorough and comforting prior to and after the surgery. Hip replacement was a success and I was running within 60 days of the procedure. I would highly recommend Dr. Flanagan and the staff at Andrews Sports Medicine.

Dr. Flanagan and his staff were very professional and friendly. He showed concern and did a great job on my hip. I never had severe pain and never had to use a cane or walker. I would highly recommend him for anyone needing orthopedic surgery.

Thank you Dr. Flanagan! Im so happy with my new hip! No problems and back to mountain biking! Pre-op was very informative and clear! Post-op is when St Vincent’s would call me between follow up visits to be sure all was well! I would recommend Dr Flanagan to anyone who asks! He’s extremely knowledgeable and easy to speak with! Doesn’t rush in and out and answers any questions you have! The entire staff was also very nice and caring!

Total right knee replacement due to miniscus tear in 1966 that was not repaired until 1986. The result was bone-on-bone for the next 31 years, resulting in having to replace the entire joint. Dr Flanagan was superb. After the first 4 weeks the healing excelerated. I am absolutely pain free. Thank you Dr. Flanagan
