    I visited Prof Fahily for hip pain and underwent hip arthroscopy for hip impingement repair. I couldn't have asked for a better consultant. He listened carefully, was knowledgeable, kind and clear in his explanations. From the first consultancy to post-surgery follow-up, I couldn't fault my treatment at all. I really recommend Prof Max Fahily for hip surgery!

    From the start communication and information was the key. Getting the information l needed to make a decision was vital. That’s what I got clear to the point information which I liked. Clear instructions, care and process. I have had a few operations but this one stands out, the only words I can say is Thankyou.

    I was kept well informed before and and after the procedure. I was able to compare my experience with my hip replacement of the opposite hip one year earlier. This time I had better movement and much less swelling after the operation.

    I have only praise for Prof Fehily. He has taken 30 years of pain away. The procedure and recovery has been hard no denying it - but the light at the end of the tunnel was there. Im so happy with my bilateral Hip replacement and I can now look forward to a future of being mobile as compared to a future in a wheelchair. I can now endeavour to get fit and have a healthy rest of my life. Thank you so very much>

    A huge thank you to Professor Max Fehily for everything you have done for me and my family! I am in my early forties. I have suffered from congenital dysplasia of my both hips all my adult life. As a result of this, my life was affected immensely. And, lately it was becoming impossible to cope with this health condition. I had MAKO bilateral hip replacement performed by Prof Fehily at Spire Manchester 7 weeks ago. Now I am pain free. I am able to sleep, move, exercise, drive and return to work. You are a wonderful, caring doctor who is always friendly and comforting to your patients. You truly make a difference in the medical field with your amazing staff.

    My hip replacement went extremely well from start to finish. Professor Fehily was recommended to me and from my first zoom meeting and subsequent face to face I felt very comfortable with him. He explained the procedure in detail and put me completely at ease over what was to happen. Post op follow up was very good and Professor Fehily answered all the questions I had.

    Hip Replacement
    As an extremely nervous patient in terms of a much needed full hip replacement, Professor Fehily put me at ease immediately with his thorough explanation of what I could expect with and without the surgery. Kind and caring, a patient feels secure and in good hands. I elected to have the Macro Robotic surgery and so very glad that I did. I did my homework about the procedure versus a regular surgery, and would recommend with no hesitation. I do feel it has helped in the healing process and I that I was receiving the best treatment possible. My nerves were completely calmed by Professor Fehily and his fabulous team.

    Professor Fehily was very good at explaining my options and allowed me time to think. Once I had selected my option I had a thorough briefing as to what to expect during and after surgery. I felt very well looked after during my inpatient stay and through my 2 follow up outpatient consultations. I am very pleased with the outcome and I would recommend him to anyone.
