Jill Caplan Flanagan, MD

Orthopaedic Surgeon





Dr. Flanagan is dedicated to providing compassionate and quality care to your children. As a mother, Dr. Flanagan feels that she has a keen appreciation of the emotional demands that a family endures when treating a child with an orthopaedic condition. She believes in a team approach with the patient, family and doctor, all collaborating together to make a decision with regards to treatment.

When asked, “What do you want your patients and families to know about you?” Dr. Flanagan responded, “I love treating children, I love crazy socks and I’m still a Washington Redskins fan.”

Dr. Flanagan is fellowship-trained in pediatric orthopaedic surgery and board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons. She has also received extra training in Baltimore, Md., at Sinai Hospital, learning the most advanced techniques of limb deformity and lengthening at the International Center for Limb Lengthening. She is trained in the use of the Taylor Spatial Frame, TL-Hex frame and precise lengthening nail. She has also been invited back as faculty to teach others how to perform limb lengthening surgeries at the renowned Baltimore Limb Deformity Course.

While Dr. Flanagan has interest in the entire spectrum of pediatric orthopaedic surgery, her specialties include limb deformity (correcting crooked limbs), limb lengthening (lengthening and reconstructing legs that are short) and osteogenesis imperfecta.

In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, hiking, and spending time with her husband and two sons.
