Patrick Flynn, DVM, DACVS-SA
Dr. Patrick Flynn is a graduate of West Virginia University where he earned his BA in Biology. He received his DVM from St. George’s University (2006) with three academic years spent in Grenada and the 4th year at the University of Illinois. During his time in Grenada, Hurricane Ivan devastated the island causing severe destruction and evacuation of the students. Dr Flynn took a 6-month leave of absence and stayed in Grenada to help run an emergency veterinary hospital and mobile service for animals in the countryside. He also volunteered at the human hospital and helped rebuild homes, churches, and orphanages.
After graduation, Dr Flynn accepted a faculty position at St. George’s for two years. He then returned to the United States to complete five additional years of training including a rotating internship at the University of Missouri (2009), a surgical internship at Aspen Meadow Veterinary Specialists (2010) in Colorado, and finally a 3-year surgical residency at SAGE, a four hospital practice in the San Francisco Bay Area. SAGE supported 15 surgeons as well as multiple other specialists including neurologists, internists, oncologists, and cardiologists allowing for intense multi-discipline training to compliment his surgical skills.
Dr Flynn completed his residency in July, 2013 and received accreditation with the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in February 2015. In addition to his small animal surgical practice in California, Dr Flynn was also the main surgeon for the Marin County Marine Mammal Center and would perform zoo and large animal surgeries in relief/emergency situations. Dr Flynn spends a large portion of his free time doing relief and charity work and he received an award from the California Veterinary Medical Association for his emergency relief work following the devastating forest fires in 2015. Dr. Flynn worked as surgeon in California for approximately 5 years before moving to southern Florida to be closer to his family.
Dr Flynn is proficient in both orthopedic and soft tissue surgery with a focus on soft tissue reconstructive procedures following severe trauma or tumor removal and minimally invasive procedures including arthroscopy, laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, and fluoroscopic-assisted fracture repair.
When he is not practicing, Dr Flynn enjoys boxing, snowboarding, surfing, endurance training, and most importantly, snuggling with his cats and dogs.
