Dr. Gallagher is an AMAZING orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Gallagher was recommended to me by a close friend in early 2021 after I tore my ACL. I saw Dr. Gallagher a few weeks post-injury and he confirmed via imagining my ACL was torn. He walked me through my options with detail and answered all my questions. Unlike most orthopedic surgeons, he listened carefully and I never, ever felt rushed. I decided to have my ACL repaired. When surgery day came, Dr. Gallagher made me feel comfortable and again answered all my questions. Surgery was great and recovery honestly went better than I expected. Dr. Gallagher advised me to take it slow and work on range of motion and strength and not rush PT. I'm only 5 week post-op and I'm walking without crutches and can cycle on my stationary bike. My swelling is almost nonexistent and my knee feels incredibly stable without feeling like I've lost any range of motion. I'd HIGHLY recommend Dr. Gallagher for anyone seeking an orthopedic surgeon.

Phenominal. Wife had a total hip replacement home the same day. This hospital staff was outstanding! (65 y/o wife did her pre-op exercises and isn't overweight.) A week later she was released from nearly all restrictions.

Dr Gallagher is an outstanding surgeon who takes the time to explain in a way I can understand. I had hip replacement surgery yesterday and doing very well today due to his expertise and super path procedure. A friend of mine who also had hip replacement recommended Dr Gallagher and I’m glad he did!

Dr. Sean Gallagher is at the top, none better. I interviewed 4 of the top ortho surgeons in Centex last year before having both hips replaced. Dr. Gallagher was the last one I met with. After that meeting, the decision was easy and today I'm pain-free and living life as it was meant to be. Let me save you a lot of time on your decision to select a surgeon. Go see Dr. Gallagher and get back to being yourself again. It's the best move you'll ever make!

I was seen in an ER for a break and they recommended seeing the on call orthopedist. I endured a transfer to another facility (facing backwards while driving on mopac!) and a wait til the next morning for surgery so that Dr. Gallagher was the one doing my surgery. Wouldn't have had it any other way. Absolutely trust him.

I highly recommend Dr. Gallagher. He replaced my left hip four years ago and I am in the process of scheduling for my right hip replacement. I wouldn't have any one other than Dr. Gallagher do it. He also did a knee replacement for my husband that went very well. We have always found his staff to be courteous and helpful.

I always find the staff absolutely professional, kind, and friendly. And Dr. Gallagher is the best. He did an outstanding knee replacement for me 3 years ago, and I recently was scheduled for a second. Unfortunately, I had to postpone it because of a dental emergency, but Dr. Gallagher and his staff have been wonderful about supporting and accommodating me as I wait for this much anticipated second knee. They are the best! I trust Dr. Gallagher completely.

Dr. Gallagher performed hip replacement surgery for my right hip 8 days ago. I've had very little pain which I credit, in part, to a well performed surgery. I'm doing outpatient PT and am doing well. The office staff is very helpful and caring.

Dr. Gallagher is awesome! Every step of the process to replace my left hip and to rehab went flawlessly and exactly as Dr. Gallagher explained. I was able to leave the hospital on the same day, transition from a walker to a cane in only four days, and complete my rehab program in only nine days. I live in Sun City in Georgetown and meet a lot of other people that went through the same procedure with other providers. They are all amazed at how quickly I recovered.

Dr. Gallagher is an outstanding surgeon. He is thorough and his staff is very helpful and friendly. He replaced my left hip Dec 2020 using the SuperPath Superior approach. He has followed up with virtual appts due to covid. He had the staff arrange in-home PT just after I got out of the hospital which helped a lot teaching me all I need to know during the first 10 days out of surgery. I plan to have my right hip done in June and Dr. Gallagher will be doing that surgery too. Highly recommend him.

After months of shoulder pain, seeing multiple doctors and numerous rounds of physical therapy, I was recommended to go see Dr. Gallagher. He diagnosed my shoulder issue without imaging, explained everything, showed me what was happening on his shoulder model and answered all of my ridiculous questions. He provided me with some very basic rehab movements to do and within 2 weeks, my shoulder was remarkably better. Ever since then, whenever I have a sports injury or joint pain, I go straight to Dr. Gallagher without hesitation. 10 / 10 would recommend.
