Dr Naqui and team were absolutely wonderful. From the initial consultation (after breaking my wrist in 4 places), the surgery and after care. Before the surgery I was made to feel at ease, during the surgery Dr Naqui explained what was happening and i even felt brave enough to have a little look at what was happening during surgery! I was blown away by the care from the team before during and after surgery. After the surgery the team made so much effort to make me feel comfortable and Dr Naqui even came to check i was ok and the pain relief was working. I was released the same day ☺ and my hand was working within hours. Amazing! I only had 5 days off sick from work which could have been 8 weeks if i had waited for the breaks to heal themselves.
I have had three procedures with Zaf, he is a really nice, warm and caring consultant. All the staff with whom I came in contact said what a really lovely man he was to work with and how they'll all liked and trusted him. The procedures on my hand were successful and I am very pleased with the outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending this consultant.
I was suffering from trigger finger that had been stuck in a locked position for 7 weeks, it was painful, and stopping me from working. I visited Mr Naqui in his clinic at Trafford General. He knew exactly how i was feeling,and how desperate i was to get my finger back to normal. Mr Naqui admitted me for surgery within two weeks. When admitted the staff were amazing they talked me through everything. They let me know how long i would be waiting, i was taken down earlier which was great. Mr Naqui and his staff talked to me, and made me feel at ease and when i asked questions they were answered so i understood. After surgery Mr Naqui told me i had to exercise my hand straight away, which i did and i have had several weeks of physio, that has helped. My finger is now moving as it should be, I am very pleased with the results, i can work again now. I can't praise Mr Naqui enough.
Mr Naqui is an excellent surgeon. He looked after my dad who sustained a nasty fracture of his hand. He genuinely cares about his patients.
I saw Mr Naqui with my thumb which I had had problems with for a few months and was getting more painful by the day. Mr Naqui was very thorough in his examination and gave me a full and detailed explanation of his diagnosis, the treatments available for my condition and how he intended to treat it. Within one week of my visit and initial treatment, I was relieved to feel the pain starting to subside; at two weeks post treatment, the pain had almost gone. Three months on and I have been discharged with full use of my thumb and no more pain. I cannot thank Mr Naqui enough; he is my miracle worker and a truly talented and brilliant surgeon.
