    Professor Fehily has been fantastic from the moment I had my first consultation with him right through until the post-operation. He was very clear and open with me regarding the options available to me as well the potential risks and benefits of these. He made me feel very much at ease and has enabled me to once again enjoy doing the activities I love doing. I can’t thank him enough!
