Mr Naqui and his team are fantastic. Very professional and caring a true gentleman! At the consultation Mr Naqui explained what this problem was and what needed to be done. The surgery was explained in full and an appointment was arranged within a few months. I had struggled for months with a rather large pearl ganglion on my middle finger and was finding it increasingly difficult to carry out everyday tasks like writing or opening jars. The surgery to remove the pearl ganglion from my finger was very quick and painless under local anesthesia. I even got to see the ganglion once removed ( I had asked prior to the surgery) Recovery was relatively painless. It didn't take long for me to be able to use my hand properly again. The follow up appointment was informative too. Thank you again Mr Naqui !
I feel that I was very fortunate to have had Mr. Naqui operate on my hand. Though some time back, Mr. Naqui gave me a very detailed account of what the problems were, and the possible outcomes so that there would be no ambiguity about the involved procedure. On the morning of the operation I was introduced to the team that would be involved in the operation. This took place at Trafford General. The operation barely took half an hour and I had no immediate or subsequent discomfort or pain, apart from an itchy palm weeks later, which has now gone. The aftercare was excellent - provided by the NHS. Apart from removing stitches, and dressing the wound I received further information and therapy at Trafford General. I have had a later consultation with Mr. Naqui, and again he pointed out the potential problems that could arise in the future as this is a disease. We are both pleased with the outcome. I am extremely grateful, as I was losing the grip in my right hand as the little and ring fingers were both curled up into the palm. Now both fingers work as they should. A brilliant outcome and many thanks to a brilliant surgeon and his team. Thank you.
I first saw Dr Naqui on 4th June 2018 following a referral by my GP for Dupuytren's contracture in my right little finger. I was very impressed by the way in which Dr Naqui explained the various issues to me - he has great way of talking to his patients and really communicates well. I subsequently underwent surgery in early September 2018 just three months after the consultation. The surgery was successful - my finger is now almost perfectly straight and I am delighted with the result. I could not have hoped for more and am very grateful to Dr Naqui and his team for their great work. Everything from start to finish was professional, efficient and effective yet at the same time relaxed and friendly. Thank you.
Mr Naqui, has operated on my hands on several occasions to correct dupuytrens contracture. On each occasion his explanations and calm manner have allowed me to make a fully informed decision. On the day of the actual operation he seems to find the time to spare that extra moment despite a busy list. The results have been on each occasion excellent and after 10 operations in total I know what I am talking about. If you need to see a hand specialist he is the one.
