I visited Dr. Amis for an issue with my shoulder. This was a 2nd opinion. I had previously gone to another Ortho Group nearby which is well known and large. I felt the personal attention and time taken by Dr. Amis was way more valuable. The problem some of these larger groups of doctors who specialize is you get a sense of a focus on volume (throughput) of patients versus attention. It's true I received similar diagnosis but I just felt like Dr. Amis was willing to sit and talk and explain my options for care. So yes, I highly recommend him at ATX Orthopedics.

Entire staff was awesome in every way. A special thank you to Vicki the surgery coordinator. She was extremely helpful and patient with all the questions I asked her about leading up to my surgery!

I highly recommend this practice. The front office staff was fantastic. They were efficient and pleasant. Most important, everyone there treated my time like it was as valuable as theirs. I went to the office a total of 4 times. I never waited to go back to the exam room for more than 5 minutes and once in the exam room, Dr. Amis saw me within 5 minutes, every time. So all in all, a typical visit was 30 minutes in total and the majority of that time was with Dr. Amis or with a PA/Nurse/X-ray Tech...

Dr. Gallagher did a great job cleaning up a meniscus issue I had. He's friendly, and explains everything really well. The entire staff at ATX Orthopedics were friendly as well. It was great experience.

Just had my second knee replacement from Dr. Gallagher after the first one 2 1/2 years ago. This time he sent me for a Cryoablation a few days before surgery and I tell you it has made for a much smoother surgery and recovery so far. Office staff is very in tune with what is going on and are so friendly. Just the best experience with very limited pain. Thank you all for your help getting me back on my feet quickly.

I have ortho problems. I was referred to Dr. Sean Gallagher by my insurance. I have to say I'm very picky on my ortho doctors. I will be using Dr. Gallagher as long as he is in practice. Fore he takes the time to address your problems and listens to your concerns. The staff are great. Each one takes the time to help your need. This group us fantabulous! KW

Dr. Sean Gallagher is my Orthopedic Surgeon. He came highly recommended, as I needed a TKR.... Upon our first meeting he put me at ease with his personality and knowledge! This surgeon is meticulous, and at the three-week mark, you can barely see my incision!! WOW! Thank you! My outpatient TKR surgery was three weeks ago today! I'm off my walker and using a cane. I started physical therapy three days after surgery. This is soooo important, as they will get you moving to get your life back...Its hard work, but it's paying off! I'm better everyday! Doc also recommended the cryotherapy injection for pain management. Please ask about this treatment, it really has helped me. I only need Tylenol and Advil now! The care and attention I've received from Vicki, Amber, Jessica and Marie made this a very easy surgery for me. They have been there for me every step of the way! What a professional, wonderful staff.. I really had great care from the hospital he uses too! Don't put it off, you'll be in excellent care! Look at the reviews!! 5 Stars! Thank you for helping me get my life and health back Dr. Gallagher! I'm glad I finally did this! Sincerely Kathy H

ATX is a unique, exceptional health care practice. When you arrive you get a friendly, professional with a great smile from the receptionist. They will first greet you by calling you by your name rather than “MayI see your health insurance card and ID so I can make a copy? The waiting room is not flooded with patients, there is little or no waiting time. The docks are highly trained, friendly, conversational and always have your best interest at heart. They are the best!

Dr Amis has helped me twice: with my wrist and with my finger. He was able to put pain behind me and brought healing where I needed it. I am grateful for his competent and kind care.

My general physician referred me to Dr. Ben Amis after I broke my wrist in an accident. His staff was wonderful, and was able to work me in within a couple of days of my call. At my first appointment, Dr. Amis went over the X-ray of my broken bone, clearly explained the nature of my injury and the options available. We agreed that surgery offered the best route for optimal healing, so 2 days later he operated on my wrist and apparently did a great job. I couldn't be happier with how well the injury has healed. He referred me to a physical therapist who has also been great. Dr. Amis and his office staff have been helpful and thorough on my follow-up visits. I highly recommend this practice.

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. I feel so lucky to have found him and am so happy I had reconstruction surgery.

What a great office to deal with. First impressions are so important but follow-up must always be as good as the first time. These folks knock it out of the park every time. ATX Orthopedics will not disappoint you.

I went to see Dr Gallagher in early 2015 on a referral from a friend who highly recommended him. I liked Dr. Gallagher right away, he’s been one of the most sincere, compassionate, understanding and clearly the best knee doctor I’ve ever met. I had a left knee joint replacement in September 2015 and within three months of the surgery I’m back doing everything I wanted to do, I snow ski, water ski, I jog a little, I run on my elliptical trainer, I ride bikes, I do everything I wanna do. As an ex ranked athlete in two sport’s I highly recommend Dr Sean Gallagher!

After months of shoulder pain, seeing multiple doctors and numerous rounds of physical therapy, I was recommended to go see Dr. Gallagher at ATX Orthopedics. 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.

ATX Orthopedic’s, Dr. Sean Gallagher if your looking for a spectacular surgeon for knee surgery. He just did total knee replacements on my knees two weeks ago today. I feel so blessed to have found him. I have been a working nurse for 35 plus years and when it comes to finding a good doctor that’s great with his patients, has the best bedside manner I have ever seen and is a great surgeon as well. He and his staff are the best in Austin, Texas. FYI I am so glad I had both knees done at the same time. I am walking without any assistance of walker, cane or anything else. I feel great and I am in my early 60’s. Dr. Sean Gallagher is a miracle worker I expected to be in so much pain post op but nope I was mistaken. I was walking same day as surgery and haven’t missed a day since surgery walking and feeling great.

You can always tell how good a doctor is going to be by the way his nursing staff welcomes you to the office. The ladies at the front were friendly, helpful, and put a smile on your face. Doctor Amis was very much the same. Easy to speak to, listened to your issues, wasn't interested in beating around the bush, and offered real time solutions to my carpal tunnel. I highly recommend his practice and skills to anyone suffering from orthopedic issues in Austin.
July 29, 2020

Scheduling and visiting ATX Orthopedics was a very nice experience during this Covid time. I was early to my appointment and called from the parking lot. I went in immediately and was barely in the waiting room before they called me back for my exam and consultation. The staff was friendly and it was obviously that they had a pleasant work environment. I left another review for Dr. Gallagher. I highly recommend this orthopedic office and Dr. Gallagher.

Dr. Amis is the best! He took care of a trigger finger that I had for a long time and it had gotten very painful. He was able to do it in office, which is so much easier and enjoyable. Thanks again Dr. Amis and your wonderful staff. Love you all!

I can't say enough good things about ATX Ortho. The staff is great and hats off to Vicki in particular. She is super helpful and her communication/follow up is great. If you want to be treated like a number, go somewhere else. If you want to be treated like family...Go to ATX Orthopedics.

This group of surgeons are TOP NOTCH!! I worked primarily with Dr. Alton Barron, but Dr. Amis assisted me when Dr. Barron was out of town. I can't say enough about how well these two took care of my injury. Dr. Barron did my surgery and was prompt to give specific follow up instructions and was always available via phone/text to answer and questions I had. The injury ended up healing nicely and I have almost complete range of motion back. Will always recommend ATX Ortho to anyone needing an Orthopedic Surgeon.

Dr Gallagher and all his staff are prompt, helpful, and genuinely treat you like family. Dr. Gallagher spends lots of time with you and answers all questions. He’s there for you and quickly answers all questions you call in about. I would recommend him to anyone I know. He did a wonderful job on my total knee and he is highly personable. He puts your mind at ease and erases all doubt.

This review is on the staff at ATX Orthopedics. I review the doctors individually. I have gone to the office three times and each time the staff has been very nice and informative. The insurance was verified promptly and the claims are submitted quickly so there is no lingering bills that need to be remit months later.

My wife and I travel full time so trying to find an Ortho surgeon was a task. It is difficult at best to be in an area that you know to do that and trying to find one in an area that you have never been to next to impossible. Last January our research began and Dr. Sean Gallagher and ATX became the front runner. After making first contact with the office, and the professional manner in which questions were answered, a consult visit was scheduled. Dr. Gallagher was the one. We, myself, wife and Dr. Gallagher, decided on simultaneous bilateral TKR scheduled for 2 weeks later. Surgery date, Nov 18, 2019. 6 HR post surgery out of bed on walker for 20 feet. Day 2 post, 85 feet walk both am and pm. Day 3 post, 150 feet and 2 stairs am and pm. Simply amazing, fast forward to today, 11/27/19 walking 1/4 mile am and pm with 45 min of PT. Very optimistic recovery. We found, in our mind, the best pairing with Dr. Gallagher. He answered all question with total honesty and never sugar coated anything and when he said something we could count on it to happen. We drove 1,500 miles for this without question I would drive across the county if I ever need another replacement. This surgeon is at the top of the list. I could go on for pages with the experience I had but will leave with this, if looking for an Ortho surgeon you will not be disappointed, or regret choosing Dr. Gallagher and ATX. 1 happy customer, Brad Adams Kalamazoo, Michigan

We have been twice to this office so far (knee injury and hand injury for my 14yr old son) and saw both, Dr Amis and Dr Ghallagher. Both are exceptional, and when my son left the office yesterday, he explicitly told me how nice and knowledgeable the doctors in this office are. He really felt comfortable. Highly recommended.

Entire staff is super friendly and caring reasonable wait time nothing too quick to where I felt I want being heard or taken care of properly but nothing too long of a wait either. The doctor explained everything perfectly and gave my options for my treatment/ recovery definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great orthopedic

Dr. Amis was very professional and sought out every opportunity to help me with a wrist/cartilage issue I'm having. He took the time to explain the x-rays and all my options before we decided on the best course of action for my treatment. I definitely recommend ATX Orthopedics and their entire staff, they are very friendly and focus on taking care of you in a timely manner.

July 27, 2019

Dr. Amis treats his patient's with respect and never meets you with a rushed approach. It is refreshing to be treated a human being, a person... not a number. Dr. Amis's has a conservative approach, if necessary as a last resort he considers surgery... but only after every conservative treatment has been exhausted. His concern is what is best for the person.. aka patient.. Dr Amis and his staff provides a no rushed approach. But the most amazing thing is that he isn't a doctor that thinks drugs or surgery as the only treatment. I trust Dr. Amis and his staff. I speak from a medical perspective and background. Dr. Amis's Staffing personnel are superb. They are number one. I would recommend Dr. Amis and his staff.

In a very first meeting I developed great amount of confidence after I met Dr. Gallagher He explained me in detail how the whole process is going to be , and decided immediately to go ahead with my surgery, and I was right in my decision, I am so happy, the surgery went so easy and comfortable that I am excited to enjoy my walk and activities in near future, I think I made a mistake by not doing it earlier, do not listen to negative people, if Dr Gallagher advices for a surgery go ahead with out a second thought, he is very honest gentleman.

Dr. Sean Gallagher is a great doctor. I went to him for consultation on my knees and shoulder. He recommended knee replacement of both knees. I had expected that. He explained the full procedure and how it is going to work. He spent a lot of time explaining the X'rays and answering all my questions. He is very knowledgeable and caring. His office staff is wonderful, kind and respectful. I would highly recommend Dr. Gallagher.

Dr. Amis is an amazing doctor, who truly cares for his patients. He is thorough in his exams and comes across very caring and attentive to one's needs. He is definitely a master at his job. I had a difficult surgery and he took on the task of fixing my problem. I'm very pleased with the outcome and on my way to recovery.

I injured my left knee in March 2019 in a non-work related incident. Immediately after injuring my knee, I sought help from another orthopedic doctor – no need to name drop. After xrays a very expensive MRI, I was given a diagnosis of synovitis. Immediate treatment – cortisone shot in the affected knee. I was told, if the shot did not work – to come back and a synovectomy would be done via arthroscopy. Well, the shot did not work. After waiting an additional 4 weeks, with absolutely NO relief, I performed quite a bit of research and stumbled upon Dr. Sean Gallagher. I called the office and was able to secure an appointment the same week. This was shock! Upon meeting Dr. Gallagher, he greeted me with a hand shake and introduced himself as “Sean!” I knew – I’m going to like this guy! I was able to bring my xray, MRI results and reports by Dr. Gallagher’s office a couple of days prior to my office visit. Needless to say, he was able to review them in detail and provide me his opinion. After a quick examination, he was able to pinpoint my problem…. Iliotibial [IT] Band Syndrome! No surgery! He prescribed anti-inflammatory meds and gave me a list of exercises to do at home – 4x/day for the next 30 days… no working out . I’m 5 days into my post-appointment exercises and the swelling in my ankles have gone down significantly. Range of motion in my knee has increased and I no longer feel any pain. I’m sure this is thanks to the anti-inflammatory meds. I’ll be able to provide an updated review in the next 30 days.

Very professional and really takes the time to show you the steps to recovery.

Was able to get an immediate appointment with Dr. Gallagher. Staff was great on the phone. No problems parking, nice office. They had pre-filled out forms for me, so it only took a couple of minutes to fill out the 4 forms. Register nurse took me back right on time, did a quick rundown with me, did the X-Rays in office and Dr. Gallagher came in shortly after. He was informal but great. No rush, lots of time to answer questions and explain things, made some good recommendations. We built a plan. Only surprise was that when I asked when we could schedule the procedure he said "How about Monday"? I assumed we would be 6 weeks out, but nope. So did a little shuffling and now will be off and running with it next week. Really pleased all around with how things are starting.
March 15, 2019

I went to see Dr. Galleger for a dislocated shoulder injury. At our first consultation he was very thorough and his answers to my questions and he provided me with all the information that I wanted. He clearly explained the procedure and made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process of my surgery. Prior to going into the operation he came and talk to me checking on my concerns and making sure that my post surgery pain management needs were met. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a personable doctor, for shoulder injuries or anything else orthopedic related!

The best experiance "hands" down! From scheduling to the follow up, this was a delightful experience. The front desk staff was very respectful and helpful, the paperwork was minimal and the office was a welcoming environment. Dr. Amis was very calming and confident, he completed his procedure before I knew it even started.

I found it easy to get scheduled with Dr Gallagher. Jessica was very helpful with my interview. Dr Gallagher was attentive, listened to me, and provided a good understanding of my problem. He offered alternatives to surgery and suggested a good plan of action without rushing into surgery. I'm glad I selected this office and would highly recommend it.

At first, I was skeptical that Dr. Ben Amis would have so many 5-star reviews. It almost seemed like they hired bots to make some fake accounts! But I took off my tinfoil hat and decided to go with him to get my ganglion cyst checked out. From that initial meeting, he and his staff were very polite and hospitable, and Dr. Amis himself went over the options available. Since I had the cyst drained in the past twice, he suggested that it would be best to have it surgically removed since the cyst was having an impact on my day-to-day routine. Literally everyone I encountered was great, both in his office and in the Pinnacle Surgery Center very close to his office. Dr. White, the anesthesiologist, Dr. Amis, and nurses Kristi and Brooke did such an impeccable job with the surgery! I can see why he has so many 5-star ratings. No one comes close!

I broke my forearm and my experience with Dr. Amis and the team at ATX Orthopedics has been fantastic. It started one night when I was changing the tire on my minivan and the jack fell and my two ton minivan came crashing down on my forearm. My radius was cracked and I called a radiologist friend for a recommendation figuring he'd know who did the best job fixing bones. He recommended Ben Amis. Dr. Amis saw me the next day, and the day after that I was in surgery having a plate & pins put in. My recovery has been a textbook case: I was off pain meds within 24 hours of coming out of surgery and on ibuprofen only for a few days. My bone has healed on target and within a month I should be back to my normal activities. As someone who stays active it was important to be able to get back to crossfit, weightlifting, and biking, and I'm delighted I with every aspect of my experience with ATX Orthopedics. It's worth noting that for every appointment I've been seen exactly on-time, no matter what time of day the appointment is -- something sadly too rare these days. Everyone in the office is professional yet fun too.

Dr. Gallagher is very personable, friendly young man. He is very knowledgeable. I trust his diagnosis and treatment. He also keeps up to date on latest treatments and medications. A good choice in selecting an orthopedic doctor.

Had been searching and researching for an orthopedist who specialized in hips and read great things about Sean Gallagher. Extremely happy that I was able to schedule an appointment to see him. He explained everything that was going on with me, discussed options to try and I never felt rushed nor pressured in to making a quick surgery decision. That time is coming in the future and I have definitely found the right doctor!

Dr Amis fixed my hand after I broke it in 4 places. He and his staff are very courteous. Dr. Amis has amazing bedside manners, very approachable and answers all questions. They were able to schedule me very quickly for the consultation and the surgery. I am very happy with the results of the surgery.

I was referred to Dr. Gallagher for hip pain and was very pleased with the visit. The office is cozy and very nicely decorated. Reception was friendly, quick and efficient; They had already populated most of my personal information into their system from the referral, so not a lot of paperwork (That gets high marks!). After a very short wait (I was early), I was shown to the examination room where the nurse (or tech) asked a few questions and then took an x-ray. Dr. Gallagher then introduced himself - He has a very casual manner that helps put one at ease. He reviewed the x-ray with me, thoroughly explained the issue, proposed a course of action and made sure I understood. Overall, it was one of the easiest Dr's visits I've ever had. Highly recommend it.

I highly recommend Dr. Gallagher for orthopedic care. He is an amazing surgeon! I am 2 weeks post-op and can't believe how quickly I have recovered from THR. My friends and family are also amazed at how quickly I have recovered. I give all the credit to Dr. Gallagher. In talking with others before surgery, I was told of all the restrictions I would have but Dr. Gallagher assured me I would not have any and I didn't! He also is very patient and doesn't pressure you at all about electing to have surgery. I am so thankful and feel so blessed that I found Dr. Gallagher. He is by far the best surgeon I have ever had! Dr. Gallagher's staff is fantastic! When you call, someone always do not have to listen to a recording or leave a message. Everyone is very nice and you don't feel like a number. Vickie and Jan are outstanding! They are both so caring and understanding of how you are feeling. Jan went above and beyond helping me get prior approval from my insurance company for Celebrex. I can't thank her enough for everything she did.

Dr. Amis is great to work with. My daughter, who is a Clinical Pharmacist did the leg work to point me in Dr. Amis's direction. I am so glad she found him! He took the time to go over all the options for the treatment of Dupuytren's disease. He explained each of them and picked a course that would work best for me. My wife and I came away VERY impressed! Also, he has a small personable, easy to work with staff. That were awesome. We had a fear of dealing with FLMA paperwork and timing to get it right. We met the lady who handles it directly, and the face to face meeting really put us at ease. Thanks you Dr. Amis and staff for making this as painless as possible! Britt

I had spent 2 years with pain in my knees seeing different doctors and trying different techniques to alleviate the pain. It took 30 mins with Dr. Gallagher to identify the source of the problem and devise a care plan, which worked within a week.
Eden W.
March 14, 2018

If I can describe it in few words then "Simply the Best Surgeon, with abundance of experience and true human soul! Dr. Sean Gallagher listened carefully to my symptoms and based to both the XRays and my symptoms he recommended to have a dual knee replacements. The thought of having to go through both was scary but he immediately made me feel like it’s no big deal. Dr. Gallagher scheduled the surgery to 3/1/18 that was about a week from the day I saw him. and it surely was as easy as a “peace of cake”. Today, two weeks after and I’m already walking almost 1/4 of a mile without any assistance. I call him "Angel" 😇 and I believe it's him who's gotten me into being so strong, being persistence to overcome the pain and see the gain. If you’re in such condition, then don’t hesitate and let him master his expertise so you can walk again free of chronic pain! Thanks to all of the staff at ATX Orthopedic And special thanks to you Dr. Gallagher for bringing the joy back to my life! 🙏😇🤗

Dr. Gallagher is a wonderful doctor. He did a double knee replacement on me almost 6 weeks ago and I've had an easy recovery considering how serious the surgery is. He is always available to answer any questions I've had before and after the surgery. My knees are healing very well and I couldn't be more pleased with Dr. Gallagher and his staff. I would highly recommend him.

I had a broken hip and anoither surgeon put in screws, but since then (about 4 years) I have had consistent pain anytime I had to climb stairs or an incline. My own surgeon just brushed this off as "reactrive bursistis" and recommended a cortison shot. Dr. Sean Gallagher lived up to my expectations of an orthopaedic surgeoon who considers the soft tissue, the gait and everything that affect pain. After examining me and making some Xrays he explained how one muscle was weak and it affected my gait and caused the bursa to be irritated. The office staff is wonderful, too. I highly recommend Dr. Gallagher!

Dr. Gallagher is thorough, takes the necessary time with patients, is clear in his explanation and evaluation of the patient's problem, and has an open and pleasant demeanor. What more could one want in a physician? The office and nursing staff is excellent and post-visit communication is unexpectedly speedy and detailed. Highly recommended.

Want to Thank Dr. Sean Gallagher for his excellent treatment and service. He operated my Mom’s both knees at the same time with the confidence that he had and showed that he is one of the Best Doctors ever. I appreciate his Care and attention for his patients and proudly recommend him as the best orthopedist to everyone.

Dr. Gallagher, is an outstanding doctor. He took them time to explain to me what was going on with my condition and what was causing the issue. Further more the simple steps i could take, that did not include surgical repairs. Thanks Sean!

I was very happy with the down to earth professionalism of Dr. Galligar and his staff. He's the best orthopedic surgeon I've been to and I've seen several over the years for my non union femur brake. Call him first, I promise you won't be disappointed. My femur bone healed under his care and surgery.

Super helpful staff. Quick intake. Minimal wait. Dr. Amis is super smart, impressive bio and experience. Spent 20 minutes or longer with me reviewing history and future options. Thumbs up.

Great experience overall. Setting appointment was made easy with a helpful and friendly front desk staff. My wait time was about 5 mins which was awesome since I usually calculate wait time to see a doctor between 1/2 hr to 1hr. This tells me that the scheduling system in place is done well. Also there was little to no paperwork to be filled out before seeing Dr Ben Amis. Ashley (the doctors assistant/nurse) was very friendly and thorough in getting all the answers she needed about my pain, medications, history etc and made her own notes prior to Dr examination. Dr Amis presented himself with a lovely smile (always nice since Dr visits are not usually fun ), very approachable personality, very thorough examining my shoulder and wrist problem, explained exactly what was going on and used a dummy model of the muscle and tendons to make me fully understand and see what was causing my pain. We all know that doctors are very busy and have multiple patients in different examining rooms waiting to be attended and most of the time I sense the feeling of being rushed but I must say this was not the case at all with Dr Amis. He was responsive to all my questions and gave me the time needed without feeling rushed. Dr Amis will definitely be my 'TO GO DOCTOR' for any future orthopedic needs...Hopefully not anytime soon though 🙂 sorry Doc!!

I saw Dr. Gallagher for chronic back pain and Dr. Amis for pain and numbing in my hand. Both times, I was referred by other orthopedists I'd visited and trusted. I was thrilled to have seen both of these exceptional professionals. Dr. Gallagher was thorough about my diagnosis. He never pushed surgery, however, told me honestly that there was nothing he could do for me. He has the perfect personality for a surgeon. He asked countless questions and made a concerted effort to arrive at his diagnosis. Likewise, Dr. Amis spoke with me in a very relaxed manner and asked many questions. It was obvious that, in my situation, he prefers non-invasive outcomes if surgery is absolutely not necessary. Just to be sure, he has recommended another colleague for further diagnostics and care. He provided me with a comfortable brace and has asked to see me in a month. He will consider the upcoming tests that his colleague will perform to make further recommendations for my care. On the two occasions that I visited the facility I found the staff to be friendly and welcoming. They did all they could to make me feel comfortable and relaxed. Because of doctors like these, we can be assured we have trusted our health to capable hands.

My 4 year old dislocated her thumb and after popping it into place at the ER we were told to follow up with a local Orthopedic doctor. After two appt with him (one a day after and one 3 weeks after) my daughters thumb still looked off, was very painful, very stiff and a bit swollen. Despite all this that doctor said her thumb looked fine and was normal. He said if I really wanted I could have her see a Hand Surgeon/Doctor, and I am so glad I did! Dr. Amis is great! He's great with kids and after looking at both her thumb and previous x-rays (he felt he didn't need to take any himself) he knew exactly what was wrong. My daughter is scheduled for surgery in a few days and I trust that he'll fix her hand good as new! He really seems to know his stuff and I will be referring friends and family to him in the future. NOTE: If the surgery goes awfully wrong and my baby comes back without a thumb lol (no, seriously though) I will be updating this review. If I don't update, you can assume he's still awesome! Hope this helps!

Dr. Gallagher gave me a full knee replacement and the results have been outstanding. He's highly skilled, attentive, and genuinely concerned about his patients. And, his "suturing" is amazing - my knee scar is minimal.

Coming up the ranks in Football leading up to professional, I have been around the block with surgeries, especially fingers. I mean my thumb and pinky were beyond saving to say the least at 33. I literally was walking in thinking that my pinky was going to be coming off. Birmingham Alabama were the supposed specialist at the time back then. Dr. Amis cleaned up their work and put a cherry on top. I also am aware of options and success percentages with surgeries. Here I got a very honest approach to what he believed would get me low risk high reward outcome or just what was achievable and if it's even worth it. He would also factor in your lifestyle in which I wanted to continue jujitsu. This is huge and hard to find, trust me. I can also attest that Dr. Amis is very critical of his surgery performance. He critiqued himself while moving the joints and explained everything while going over x-rays calculating angles of joints and how healing was going which I got every visit. Speaking of the staff, they were just as awesome. They were great, super nice, and would like to say thank you very much for everything. They have a good thing going on there. For this, I can now give them a thumbs up!

Dr Gallagher was recommended to me when I was looking for an orthopedic surgeon to repair a ruptured quadriceps tendon of my right knee. Other than the surgery, I've had the initial consultation and two post surgery followup visits with him. He is very thorough, explaining in detail the injury, the surgical procedure and the recovery process. He never appeared to be in a rush, taking his time to answer all my questions and address my concerns. I'm now ready to start the physical therapy part of the rehab and am looking forward to getting my knee back to full function. I would highly recommend Dr Gallagher for anyone needing an orthopedic surgeon.

Not your typical doctor's office experience. They give you time to ask questions and share all sorts of insight with you about what's going on and how to move forward with your injury. They are always punctual and totally in service to you.

I saw Dr Amis for tendinitis issues in my shoulders. He was very thorough in his questions, has a background in fitness and athletics so understands my background, and always pursued the least severe course of treatment (therapy before injections before MRIs). Plus he's very genial, and prompt in follow-up.

well attended too and very happy with my surgery. So good that I'm back for more. Dupuytren's is a discomfort and Dr. Amis knows his stuff. Or palms and fingers!

Efficient and friendly staff at clean, not far outside of downtown, office space. Specialists have outstanding breadth of knowledge and I appreciated their extraordinary patience and bed side manner. Built much needed confidence in my decision making toward a complicated bilateral hip replacement surgery. Highly recommend ATXO for hip and knee consultation services and for their general expertise in orthopedics.

Fantastic doctor, very current on techniques and literature in his field. Very common sense and spends plenty of time with you. Answers all questions including detailed questions, if you so desire. His staff was very nice and helpful, very personalized experience, not at all like other orthos I have dealt with. Six months after a knee replacement, I am back to full activities! I highly recommend Dr. Gallagher and his staff.

Dr. Amis exemplified everything I wanted and needed in an orthopedic surgeon. First, and most importantly, he fixed my elbow, which I could go on and on about, but I'll just say it was life changing to say the least. Second, Dr.Amis was personable, attentive, and communicated to me the specifics of the problem in an easily understood way. Dr. Amis came highly recommended by a friend who is also a physician, and he did not disappoint. The staff at ATX Orthopedics were equally impressive. I was fortunate to be in this practice's care.

I highly recommend Dr. Amis and the ATX Orthopedics team. I had so many questions about my injury, but he never made me feel like those inquiries were insignificant. He took time to explain everything to me with sincerity and kindness. I sincerely trust his expertise and am glad to have an orthopedic surgeon like Dr. Amis and the rest of the ATX Orthopedics team in Austin.

I went to ATX ortho for the first time today. The office was clean, the staff was welcoming and warm, and Dr. Gallagher was awesome!! I went in for knee pain thinking I would never be able to run again, and left knowing that I have years of running ahead of me!! He explained everything in great detail and showed me several stretching exercises. There was no wait time and my x-ray was done immediately. It was a great experience!!!
