Prof Max Fehily – (Hips)
I studied medicine at Trinity College Dublin and completed my initial surgical training both there and in the UK, before undertaking specialist orthopaedic training in the north west. During my training, I gained a Masters in Orthopaedic Engineering and was published in the leading orthopaedic journals. I have completed fellowship training in knee and hip surgery and made a number of visits to internationally recognised centres, both in the UK and the US to further my expertise.
I specialise in surgery of the hip and I have a particular interest in young athletes with soft-tissue hip problems, as well as complex reconstruction of the hip in the older patient. I perform hip arthroscopies (keyhole) regularly and have designed a comprehensive rehabilitation program to complement this surgery. I perform a full range of hip replacement surgeries for young patients with childhood disease, older patients who wish to maintain an active lifestyle and revisional surgery for patients who have failing hip replacements. I regularly treat high level athletes, ranging from dedicated amateurs to commonwealth and world championship competitors.
I am also a member of the Regional Training Committee and an Honorary Professor at Salford University. I regularly teach on hip arthroscopy courses within the North West and is a member of the faculty of national and international courses teaching hip arthroscopy to orthopaedic surgeons. I regularly attend national and international conferences which focus on advances in hip surgery.
