Dr. Jess Flynn M.D.

Sports Medicine Physician

Dr. Jess Flynn M.D. is a sports medicine doctor who specializes in injuries relating to athletes. Dr. Flynn has worked with The 33rd Team, Boston Sports Journal, Sports Illustrated, and NBC Sports Boston.

Dr. Flynn has her own podcast called “Sidelined with Doc Flynn” in which she focuses on injury analysis and how recovery and prevention pertain to specific injuries. Flynn’s insight is routinely used by NFL executives and coaches to discuss draft picks and game planning as it relates to injuries.

She graduated from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, one of the most prestigious medical schools in the United States, then got her start in football in 2016 when Tom Brady was serving his four-game suspension in New England. Jimmy Garoppolo was the starting quarterback at the time, and was criticized for his lack of “toughness” after he was driven to the ground, injuring his throwing shoulder. Dr. Flynn wanted to correct the narrative by displaying the reality of the injury.

Ever since, Dr. Flynn has been widely respected throughout the league when it comes to injury analysis.

She has more than 15 years of experience as a sports medicine physician and more than five in media commentary and analysis.

Dr. Flynn currently works in Burlington, Massachusetts, specializing in Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine.
