Great Doctor
Had Dr. Gallagher repair my ACL. All of the staff from the surgery center and Dr. Gallagher 's team were amazing. Im a hard patient to deal with as I am Allergic to all pain meds, but Dr. Gallagher did everything he could to make me as comfortable as possible. He took his time and made sure I knew all of the information before hand.

Dr. Gallagher is THE BEST orthopedic doctor in Austin. I had superPATH hip replacement surgery yesterday at 11am, walked with a walker at 4pm and was back home at 8pm. He is a brilliant surgeon, he is kind and compassionate and he can change your life. DON'T WAIT, DON'T SUFFER ANY MORE, GO SEE HIM! '

Dr Sean Gallagher was recommended to me as an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He is all that and more. I went home the same day as my hip replacement. He was able to fix my leg length discrepancy. His pain management protocols address various paths of pain. Dr Gallagher had me get all my medications prior to surgery — no stopping to get meds on the way home. He is also kind and was willing to address all my concerns and questions. The office staff is also wonderful. They were so prompt. I never had to wait hours for a return call. I also never had a long waiting time in his office for appoints. If you need a new hip or knee, you will find him to be an excellent surgeon and his staff a great support. I am going to really like my new hip.

I've just had my 11 week check-in with Dr Gallagher after my THP in October. Everything is healing correctly and I'm 95% pain free. My day to day activities have been completely normal for several weeks now. I can't say enough good things about Dr Gallagher and his staff. Everything went very well and much easier than I expected.

I'm at week 5 1/2 following a TKR (total knee replacement).... and while it will take awhile to regain flexion and strength, I'm totally impressed w/ the surgery and recovery. Surgery was out patient, and I was up and scooting along in recovery in no time. Thanks Dr. G

Was convinced I needed knee replacement as I was having difficulty with stairs. X-rays showed my knees were good. Needed exercises to strengthen my quads. Gave me exercises to do at home & a follow up in 6 weeks. Great bedside manner & staff all friendly/helpful. Was recommended by several people & they weren’t wrong!

Dr. Gallagher effectively explained the diagnosis and corrective procedure. I liked his practical examples about a common but complex issue. He fielded my questions with patient and thoughtful responses. He took time to outline my options, taking a conservative approach to treatment.

I have now seen Dr. Gallagher several times and he has performed two knee replacement surgeries on me. I am now preparing to have a shoulder replacement done by him. He is extremely personable, thorough and skilled. His pain management procedures are also top notch. His office staff is friendly and conscientious. I considered several orthopedic surgeons before choosing Dr. Gallagher and I am very happy with my choice.

I visited Dr. Gallagher for consultation about my knee replacement in September 2020 that has resulted in a limited range of motion despite vigilant physical therapy; 110°. Dr. Gallagher’s X-rays showed a misalignment of the knee replacement parts. He carefully described possible causes of my limited range of motion; misalignment with parts too close to allow bending, chemical composition of parts for the prosthetics that could cause an allergic reaction, as well as retention of a ligament v. peg attached to prosthetic to align bones in bending. He also suggested trying ibuprofen instead of Celecoxib to reduce swelling since the Celecoxib has not had a noticeable effect. Overall I came away with a detailed understanding of factors contributing to my limited range of motion, and correction that could be gained with a possible revision surgery.
