I was referred to Mr Naqui from Bradford Royal Infirmary for a severe pain I had in my wrist (turned out to be a cyst on my scaphoid bone). Although sometimes the waiting times for appointments were delayed once at the hospital, I felt I was given enough time at each appointment to discuss what and where the pain was. After a year under Mr Naqui's care (pain for 5yrs before that), and an operation that did fix it (as far as I am concerned at this time) I have now been discharged.
I coasted through my treatment which was a Dupuytren's operation with good communication throughout, and no cancellations. My operation was a complete success, and I have now been discharged. The surgeon and staff did an excellent job, and I have complete faith in Trafford General Hospital.
I had an operation for Dupuytren's to my little finger. This was the second time I have had this done and the result is fantastic. The finger is almost straight, which is a marvel, with very little scarring. Mr Naqui is a very good listener and explains things very clearly. He has an extremely pleasant manner and very professional. He makes you feel totally at ease and you put your trust in him completely. I would recommend him most highly.
We were referred to Mr Naqui following my son injuring his arm with a knife. He had been originally treated at our local hospital but was subsequently complaining of issues with his hand and arm. Mr Naqui listened intently to our concerns and then asked a number of questions to ensure he fully understood. He then queried whether my son had been prescribed antibiotics following his visit to hospital, to which we replied he had not. He promptly suggested that these be obtained to minimise infection in light of the knife being deemed to be dirty. He examined the wound and suggested that his symptoms were trauma related and would subside but if my son was still experiencing issues in a few days, an ultrasound would be required to rule out damage to a tendon. Mr Naqui was knowledgeable and professional in his approach and made us feel at ease throughout the whole process. He did not use convoluted medical terminology unless referring to something specific but then immediately followed this up with a simple explanation. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anybody with hand and wrist issues as he really does know his stuff! A commendable surgeon.
