A word from our patients


Under the care of Professor Fehily The operation was a complete success due to the care and professionalism of Max.

J Paul Enky Hayhurst

After visiting Professor Fehily it was decided I needed a full hip replacement. Every stage of the process was communicated to me. The surgery was a complete success and I feel like I have a new lease of life.

Oliver Teale

My experience was excellent and I felt like I was in the best hands possible throughout. The process of pre-op scans, surgery day, post-op rehab and follow ups was seamless.
