    I’ve had over 20+ surgeries, I can confidently say that Edmund Fitzgerald O'Connor has been by far my favourite surgeon. I’m very happy with my results. He’s kept his promises and has achieved what was desired by myself. He was very realistic on what was possible to achieve in my case. He always went above and beyond during consultations/review appointments. Always was very detailed and never ‘sold a dream’. Three words to describe Dr Edmund Fitzgerald O'Connor would be; highly skilled, realistic & very passionate at his job.

    Over the moon with my results already. I am one week post-op for breast reduction and lift from 36 E/F to approx. B/C. I had two consultations in the months leading up to the operation with Mr Fitzgerald O'Connor, a pre-op consultation on the day and excellent follow up day after the surgery. He has answered all questions I've had quickly and thoroughly. Mr Fitzgerald O'Connor is very thorough, highly personable, clear and (as a very nervous patient) put me at ease immediately - which is invaluable. I couldn't recommend him highly enough - I'll definitely be in touch with him if I need anything else in the future. The surgery has already been completely life-changing. An excellent doctor and surgeon - an enormous thank you!

    From the beginning I had a very good experience with Dr Edmund Fitzgerald O'Connor , the first day he examined and explained to me what he needed to do for me to get the best results. On the day of surgery I was very nervous but he put me at ease and everything went well. The following day after my surgery he called me to find out how I was doing which was very kind of him, I got very good results . He was fantastic throughout the process and I would highly recommend.

    I could not have asked for a better experience. From my initial consultation to pre-op consultations, the actual op and then post-op care, this has been an easy, smooth, reassuring, trusting experience. Really clear communication, no rushing and I felt I could ask anything. I highly recommend Dr Fitzgerald O'Connor.

    Mr Fitzgerald is a highly-skilled plastic surgeon who performs work of the highest quality. We work together as part of the Orthoplastics team at King's College Hospital: Once the bone has been fixed by the orthopaedic surgeon, I have the utmost confidence in Mr Fitzgerald protecting that fixation with excellent soft-tissue coverage.
