I am an orthopaedic Surgeon with specialty training in hip and knee replacement surgery. Originally from Connecticut, I played ice hockey in college and worked as a carpenter for six years before attending medical school. My education in Boston at the Harvard Orthopaedic Program inspired me to pursue fellowship training in joint replacement at Massachusetts General Hospital. My primary interest lies in the care for patients with degenerative joint disease, recognizing a multitude of conservative and surgical treatment options for patients with varying stages of arthritis.
I enjoy spending time with my young family, the outdoors, and home renovation.

“Dr. Fehm replaced my left hip and by doing so, he gave me back my life. Excel personnel are intelligent, kind and very professional. Dr. Fehm and his associates know their stuff and deliver positive results.”
“I recently had my left hip replaced by Dr. Fehm. At first I was very nervous, but from the first time I met with him everything just took off from there. Everything about the operation was simply professional and Dr. Fehm is an amazing doctor. He kept me calm and did a wonderful job on my hip. I feel great and am starting to walk fast and ready to jog.”
“I don't think there is anything Dr. Fehm could have done better!!! I had a total knee replacement 5 weeks ago and couldn't be happier with my progress! My ROM is at 125!!! I never thought I would be where I am at only 5 weeks!! Dr. Fehm has been very pleasant any time I've seen him. Very happy with his wonderful surgical skills! Everyone was very kind and accommodating. Nursing staff exceptional! Dr. Fehm answered every question and explained a lot of things regarding the surgery. I was put at ease! As far as I concerned, Excel sets the bar on service in every way. From answering my call to checking out, the staff is always on top of everything. Makes things a lot easier!!”
"This year I had a total hip replacement done by Dr. Fehm at Excel and of course, I went back to Excel for my PT. Both my PT and Dr. Fehm were fantastic and completely knowledgeable about what they do. The helped me get back on my feet and walking again. If I have surgery in the future, I would have it done at Excel."
"Dr. Fehm is by far the best surgeon around. Dr. Fehm and his staff are amazing and so caring. Dr. Fehm is sweet, kind, and very honest he's upfront and will lay it all out for you. He is not your average doctor he takes his time to listen to his patients and make sure that they are comfortable and have an understanding of the next step forward before leaving the office. The past four years of my life has been nothing but disappointment I've been through numerous surgeries and a few different surgeons. Before meeting doctor Fehm six month ago I was unable to bend my left knee at all. At that time my left leg did not bend and I was walking with a straight leg making it look like every step my leg would make a half circle. My life as I felt was over all because I was no weight bearing on my left leg. The day of my appointment to meet doctor Fehm I was very skeptical but who wouldn't be you can only meet so many surgeons. That day my life changed for the best. Doctor Fehm took his time and built me a brand new knee there is no other surgeon out there like doctor Fehm. I can walk down the street without people looking at me without having to keep a straight leg while walking. He is not just an amazing person he is an exceptional surgeon. Dr. Fehm you are my hero! I would highly recommend him to anyone that feels the way I did. If you put you put your life in his hands you will never regret it!"
"Dr. Fehm is a wonderful surgeon and Gabriela is very pleasant and competent. I was fortunate enough to get my original surgery date moved up. My personal experience was very good. I found all staff to be very caring, competent and concerned. I always recommend Excel to anyone who needs services."
"He (Dr. Fehm) was very helpful with preparing me for the surgery. He explained everything that he would be doing and what to expect afterwards for recovery. Everyone was very pleasant and were right there when I needed them. Everything was well explained. I was able to get in touch with my doctors office upon request immediately."
