W. Patrick Flanagan, M.D.

Urologist

Medical Background

Dr. Flanagan was born and educated in New Orleans, La. After graduation from high school he enlisted in the Marines and saw service during the Vietnam war being discharged honorably as a corporal. He then went on to college and medical school at LSU in New Orleans earning his medical degree. He then went on to complete his general surgery at the University of Florida in Gainesville and urology at the Ochsner Clinic in New Orleans. He and his family then came to Waukesha in 1988 where he began the private group practice of urology for 11 years and developing his own solo urology practice for the last 15 years. He joined Metropolitan Urology in 2016.

During these last 3 decades the health care delivery system in both diagnostic and treatment methods has undergone a sea change in its model. The changes have come at a dizzying rate requiring practicioners to keep pace or fall behind. Dr. Flanagan has experienced these cutting edge changes in technology using a seasoned approach to upgrade historically older techniques while integrating the newer da Vinci robotic-assisted techniques that form the cutting edge of modern urology today.

His practice is general in scope, but he also has acquired a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of bladder disorders associated with disease of the nervous system that comes with our advancing years.

As a hobby he enjoys beekeeping.
