“Dr. O'Flynn was given a severe case doing revision surgery on my hip that was initially performed by another doctor. It was a hard job, and he had to use some special techniques to remove a stuck stem. I am confident that the outcome will be the best result that there could be. Dr. O'Flynn takes the time to do the actual procedure as well as to explain to me what he did.”
