Ratings for Dr. Julian Feller
Paid $6500 for a operation which actually made my knee worse with constant daily pain.Every follow up consultation I have lasts 3 seconds in which he tells me it will get better! 18 months and 5 consultations later I've gotten nowhere and nothing from my $6500
I had my initial knee injury when I was 11 years old. Over the years I had recurring and frequent subluxation and some times dislocation of my left patella. Of course this disability impacted on my participation of physical activity and enjoyment of life. Another orthopaedic surgeon had told me that my knee could not be operated on due to arthritic changes. I anticipated that at any slight provocation my knee could dislocate causing me to crash to the floor in agony. An excellent physiotherapist suggested I seek the opinion of Julian Feller. At the age go 46 I had a tendon transfer and lateral release. The operation has given me mobility and stability that I thought was never an option. Its nearly 10 years ago that Julian Feller operated on me and its been a wonderful success. I do not suffer any pain or instability in the left knee. Julian Feller was always professional and explained exactly what he intended to do during surgery. For 35 years I lived with the impression that nothing could be done so I was appreciative when he said that " something has to be done, you can't go on with that level of instability". I think Julian Feller is a wonderful surgeon, a very nice man and that Melbourne is fortunate to have his services. Thank you Professor Feller
Professor Feller thank you. Thank you, thank you. Fingers crossed, about to run my next marathon. I didn't think it possible even though you told me I would be able to after surgery. Their have been many ups and downs in training since surgery but, I think I might just be on the start line this year. After every run, I quietly thank you. I always look up and silently thank you. I am able to run because of you. Not just run, but run a long way. Last Sunday I ran 31.78k, (that is where the finish line was) and when I finished, I quietly thanked you, again. (Didn't run 32k to round it off because my program called for only 30k, and I had already gone too far)! I never thought I would be able to run another marathon. But.....October 18 2015 is my year. Thank you Professor. Best wishes for whatever you plan in the future.
Julian is a highly professional and caring surgeon. My first ACL reconstruction was at 12 years of age and my second at 16. I have always found him to be totally understanding, passionate about his work and highly trustworthy. Even around such a busy schedule he has always been able to see me in a timely manner. Thanks Julian :)
There are no words that can convey how great this man is. He is the leader in the field of knee reconstruction. I would recommend him to anyone. in 2013, after a bad ACL tear, meniscus rip and cartilage scrape, he put me back in the game. Literally. Thank you.
Had two acl reconstructions knee didnt feel right after second sugury was told by julian that it was floating miniscus... Just went to run in a strait line and knee went sideways as if there was no graft and has now swallowen to twice the size! My knee has been butched and is in a far worse state wish i never went to julian
I had a full knee replacement May 2012 by Prof Julian Feller, I can't recommend him highly enough and found his bedside manner fantastic. Always managed to get a smile or laugh out of me each day. I found him a very compassionate man who understood the pain I had been experiencing and the level of damage to my knee. I underwent an Arthroscopy on the knee with another surgeon and I woke to more pain than I had been experiencing before the surgery, it never went away. I requested a replacement for some time but was refused . After 18 months of chronic pain I decided to research Orthopaedic Surgeons, not knowing any I just read and read. I continually returned to Julian's site and finally decided to call for an appointment, I must admit it is a long wait but as far as I am concerned it was well worth it. I am waiting again to see Julian re concerns with the other knee, torn meniscus cartilage, possibly just a clean out but I trust Prof Julian Feller to make the correct call for me.
