I had liberal tears in both hips. After having multiple steroid injections my GP referred me to a consultant at The Oaks. He heard my problems and referred my to a Prof Fehily. He’s a lovely Man who listened to me and operated on both hips. I’m now able to run again. Something that I hadn’t done for some 3 years prior to meeting Prof Fehily. I would recommend him to anyone with hip problems. Thank you so much Prof and I wish you all the look in your future.

Very supportive. I felt I was able to talk about the difficulties I was having and that he LISTENED. Operation had to be cancelled first time as my heart wasn’t working properly,and he was still prepared to pick me up again four months later as an nhs patient. Professor Fehily has given me my life back. I am able to do everything I want to do now. For my 60th birthday, I got a bicycle while I had I ride regularly, not having had one since I was a child previously
