Mr Mansoor Foroughi

I first met this life saver around 20 months ago when I had been suffering with intense excruciating episodes of facial pain for over 6 years
Up to this point the medical profession were all puzzled as to the reason behind them. MRI scans discovered an exceptionally large eustachian tube and resulted in numerous consultations with other Neurologists and ENT consultants which lead to multiple operations related to this. Sadly though the operations did not bring any cure and the pain attacks continued.
Following a visit to a pain management consultant I was then referred to Mr Foroughi.
During my1st consultation with Mr Foroughi I discovered that at last I had found someone who genuinely cared and was determined to investigate and resolve my problem. He was unbelievably kind, understanding and compassionate, realising I was almost at my wits end. He diagnosed a complicated form of trigeminal neuralgia.
By that time i had become so heavily medicated by others doctors to try and keep the attacks under control life was just a painful haze, but Mr Foroughi vowed and reassured me that there would be a solution and explained in depth the MVD surgery he had planned along with the associated pros and cons and that due to the complexity of my case he couldn't guarantee 100% success. He wanted to be certain I understood the situation.
A few setbacks with admission for surgery were experienced, thanks to the NHS situation, however again he was so kind and caring, realising my immense disappointment, he kept re-assuring me. Sure enough cranial surgery did finally happen where by Mr Foroughi did all that he had promised and more to stop any repeat pain episodes.
During post surgery follow up consultations again Mr Foroughi went above and beyond to assure me that even if his procedure did cure the problem, he would not rest until he found something that would.
Now, over a year later I can happily say I am medication free and other than some facial twinges that still go on, I've had no further severe attacks of pain.
Mr Foroughi was indeed an absolute life saver and you are unlikely to meet a kinder or more caring man within the medical world. Mr Foroughi IS as good as it gets.
Thank you Mr F.
