Mr Saif Hadi
1st December 2020
I was diagnosed with calcific tendonitis & after 18 months of various injections and processes that didn't improve my condition, I was referred to Mr Hadi for surgery. I met him a couple of months before my operation and he explained the procedure to me in simplistic terms, so I understood what would happen on the day. His communication skills were excellent, I felt reassured and able to ask any questions that I had on my mind.
On the day of surgery, Mr Hadi came to see me about an hour before my operation, again, his communication skills were fantastic, he was happy to answer any questions I had, including offering me advice on anaesthitics / nerve blocks, that I was struggling to understand on the day.
Following a couple of months of physiotherapy, I attended a "follow up" apointment with Mr Hadi, who was able to offer specific details (and photos) of how my operation went, what impact it had on my tendons and what recovery time-scales I could expect.
All in all, my experience was very positive, as a 54 year old having my first ever operation, the process from start to finish was exceptional, due largely to Mr Hadi's comunication & surgical skills. Having removed more calcium from my shoulder than in any of his other previous surgical operations over the last 11 years, the damage to my tendons was minimal, I had 95% mobility back in my arm / shoulder within a couple of weeks, and am well on my way to a full recovery, with very little pain or discomfort throughout.
