How do I book?

Simply call (01) 662 9908 to arrange an initial consultation, or use the contact form located on this page to request a consultation.

Will the doctor explain exact details & potential success of my procedure?

Dr. Pearse Phelan will carry out your assessment and determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. The procedure will be explained fully and you are then able to take the information away to decide if you would like to proceed. The information pack will include details of Prof. Kamami’s qualifications, the procedure and follow up care. If you decide to continue, you can book in for the procedure with Prof. Kamami. On the procedure day, you will be met by Prof. Kamami and Dr. Phelan who will review you briefly again and who will both be with you throughout the procedure.

Who do i contact afterwards if i have any questions?

Dr. Phelan will follow up with you after the procedure via phone. If you have any additional queries please feel free to contact the clinic on (01) 662 9908 and we will ensure the doctor answers your questions.

Will i feel under any pressure to have the surgery done?

Absolutely not. We are here to advise you about your problem and your options. We will explain all aspects of the procedure and give you information to take away with you. The decision is then up to you.

Will my voice change after my procedure?

No, you will sound the same as before the procedure.

Will I be able to swallow properly?

Yes, we will have you drinking water before you leave the clinic.

Can i bring a family member along with me?

Yes, we prefer you to bring a family member with you. It will help with the assessment and it’s nice for you to have some support. If you would prefer to come alone, then that’s fine too.

How soon can i have the surgery done?

Naturally, it depends on lots of things, but the rule of thumb is 2-3 weeks from the consultations. This is sometimes changeable and we will always do our best to fit in with your diary and timetable.

Is the surgery covered by my health insurance?

Our treatments are not covered by health insurance. However, you may be able to recoup some of the cost by contacting Revenue and enquiring about the MED1 form. Please see for more information.

Do you accept medical cards?

Unfortunately, we do not accept medical cards or offer payment plans.
