Personal profile

Professor Fehily is the Clinical Director and lead surgeon at The Manchester Hip Clinic. He specialises in surgery of the hip and has a particular interest in hip preserving or key-hole surgery and robotic hip replacements.

Professor Fehily has pioneered the development of robotic assisted hip replacements. He performed the first ever robotic hip replacement in the North West using the MAKO system from Stryker and is one of the highest volume robotic hip surgeons in the UK. He is a member of the EU Mako Council, advising industry on the development of robotics in hip surgery.

He is one of the leading hip arthroscopy surgeons in the UK and performs over 160 of these procedures a year and has designed a comprehensive rehabilitation program to complement that surgery. He has pioneered the use of stem cells and scaffolds in hip surgery to regenerate cartilage damage.

He regularly treats high-level athletes, ranging from dedicated amateurs to Commonwealth, World Championship, Olympic and Premier League competitors. He regularly treats professional athletes from a variety of sports including football, rugby, taekwondo, squash and athletics amongst many others.

Professor Fehily treats patients from all over the UK and internationally. He is the lead hip surgeon for the Hip and Groin Clinic, for the English Institute of Sport (Manchester), for the Armed Forces (Northern) and is a registered Consultant in the United Arab Emirates, having practiced in Dubai.

He is the lead on many surgeon educational courses, training other consultants from all over the UK and Europe in both key-hole and hip replacement techniques.

He is a keen educator and leads (lower limb) a Masters program at Salford University and has published many papers in peer reviewed journals. In 2017, The Manchester Hip Clinic was the only private clinic involved in a large multi-centre NHS trial into the effectiveness of hip arthroscopic surgery.

He works closely with industry to develop new education programs, techniques and surgical devices to improve patient care.
