ENHANCED RECOVERY AFTER HIP&KNEE REPLACEMENT SURGERY
Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) was pioneered by Henrik Kehlet in Denmark, in the 1990s as an effort to improve recovery after colorectal surgery. Kehlet hypothesized that surgical stress, metabolic and endocrine derangements, and prolonged immobilization contribute to ‘organ dysfunction’: pain, nausea, vomiting, ileus, fatigue, and cognitive disturbance.

REVISION ACL SURGERY
"High Level of Empathy and Professionalism"
I am an active PE and Maths teacher who has always enjoyed playing a range of sports. Around ten years ago, I tore my right ACL playing basketball and after a long and painful recovery lasting 8 months to a year, I struggled to regain my fitness, but returned to playing sport. After 2/3 years of training and playing I ruptured my left ACL. This time, I went to a different surgeon. Both experiences with the surgeons were similar, somewhat impersonal.

ACL RECONSTRUCTION
"Exceptionally Professional Surgery & Follow-Up"
I had a skiing accident and ruptured my ACL. Within a few days of my return home I had an appointment and discussion with Mihai about my options and likely time frames which was very important to me both for work, and, as I was emigrating to Australia within a few months. I was extremely happy with the care that I received having opted to go ahead with surgical reconstruction. My physiotherapist was amazed by my quick recovery and minimal scarring. On leaving Ireland I was even given contacts in

PHYSICAL THERAPIST
Example of the modern surgeon
I contacted Mihai as I was interested in knowing more about how ACL surgery was done. I had rehabilitated plenty of ACL patients, some of which Mihai had operated on, but never saw a live surgery. It was a cold call and I wasn't expecting a reply as I had contacted other surgeons also without response. I received a prompt reply with an invitation to visit his OR and spend some time speaking to him about his surgical approach & his rehab protocols.

GENERAL PRACTITIONER
An absolute gentleman and highly skilled surgeon
I have dealt with Mihai as both a GP and as a patient. I am a GP in Roscommon and ruptured my cruciate ligament on the GAA pitch in Sept, 2014, 5 weeks before my wedding day. I wanted to get it sorted and on the road to recovery ASAP. Having had the MRI and the leg in otherwise excellent shape, Mihai deemed me suitable to have the surgery 2 weeks after the injury.
