    The most amazing Surgeon I have ever experienced. I am a 29 year old man who went in for a hip arthroscopy & Graft. I suffer with health anxiety & was extremely nervous during the lead up to the appointment & especially on the day of surgery. Max was outstanding throughout, taking the time to call me on the days leading up to the surgery to put my mind at rest. I have no idea why I was even worried as the surgery was completely pain free & so is the recovery. I also had an epidural which I was very scared about, this was not a problem either as Max's anaesthetist was fantastic. An amazing surgeon, person & couldn't recommend highly enough.

    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!
