I travelled a long way in a lot of pain to see Mr Saddiqui for a private consultation. The specialisms he lists fitted my needs exactly. I checked beforehand on the facts of the procedures he undertakes. Prior to appointment I had written a synopsis of my problem. I felt that Mr Siddiqui did not listen to me at the appointment nor give proper attention to my written information. He just put his own interpretation on it. Four painful and months down the line with very alarming bowel symptoms, I have visited a different colorectal / pelvic floor consultant who has identified correctly the problem and I'm now preparing to have the appropriate treatment by him.

Mr Siddiqi took great care to listen to all my symptoms. He swiftly arranged for me to have a colonoscopy to eliminate more serious diseases. He referred me to a dietician and a physiotherapist. After the results of the colonoscopy he diagnosed IBS and with the low FODMAP diet recommended by the dietician changed my life for the better. I had no idea that my distressing symptoms where caused by IBS. Fantastic Doctor very efficient and decisive. Always very pleasant to see.

Mr Siddique listened carefully and immediately identified not only that I had been given wrong advice in the past but that I had responded by becoming rather obsessive about my perceived 'problem'. He encouraged me to try and change my behaviour, while acknowledging that this would be difficult as it had become so entrenched. But he gave me the confidence to try. He is understanding yet very professional and his knowledge of his subject is awesome. It's hard to put into words how I felt after seeing him. It was as if I had been released from a kind of prison.

A very patient and calm consultant. He listened to all I had to say, his explanations of my condition were clear and concise and made in laymens terms. He made all necessary referrals to other health care professionals promptly all of which have improved my condition. It has been a pleasure to have been seen by Mr. Siddiqi.

After 15 months of not being able to leave the house unless I was very near a toilet, I was finally referred to Mr Siddiqi. I had previously been told they didn't know what was causing my problem and I was just left. My first visit to Mr Siddiqi immediately filled me with hope and confidence, he completely understood my situation. He arranged various tests such as CT colonoscopy and two MRI's of the bowel, blood tests and faecal samples. Finally I had a plan. Today I find out thankfully I do not have bowel cancer but I do have several things that need to be addressed. Again I am filled with confidence and we will start the elimination process. Both he and I are confident we will solve this problem. Further updates will follow as I progress.

Profile

Mr Siddiqi is a Consultant Surgeon at Broomfield Hospital. Within the Department of General Surgery, he is the Lead Surgeon for Pelvic Floor Surgery and Surgical Site Infections. Since his appointment, he has initiated advanced robotic surgery using the da Vinci robot for pelvic floor conditions and is one of the most experienced surgeons in this type of robotic surgery in the country. Broomfield Hospital is the only centre in Essex performing robotic operations and is a BUPA preferred centre for robotic surgery. This extensive robotic surgical experience has now been used for other colorectal operations including surgery for cancer. Mr Siddiqi has also introduced new and innovative therapies for faecal incontinence and constipation. Despite his background as a surgeon, Mr Siddiqi has extensive knowledge in medical problems such as irritable bowel syndrome, pelvic pain and Pruritus ani (anal itch) without which, he feels, he would not be able to manage complex surgical issues. He has developed academic links with Anglia Ruskin University and is currently involved in surgical research projects in the fields of colorectal cancer and surgical infections. He is a Honorary Senior Lecturer at the university and is the GI module tutor for the MSc in minimal invasive surgery. Mr Siddiqi graduated from St. Georges Hospital Medical School, London and later undertook research at the University of London studying methods trying to improve the detection of colorectal cancer spread for which he was awarded a MD thesis. He completed his specialist surgical training in the North East Thames Higher Surgical Training programme. Mr Siddiqi obtained further advanced training in Castle Hill Hospital, Hull and Waikato Hospital, Hamilton, New Zealand. In Hull, which is a leading pelvic floor centre, he undertook a Pelvic Floor Fellowship. Subsequently, Mr Siddiqi obtained the rare accreditation for Sacral Nerve Stimulation from this unit. In New Zealand, he worked as a Laparoscopic Fellow at a busy innovative unit specialising in keyhole surgery. He is on the editorial board for the Journal of Robotic Surgery.
