Over the last 6 months i have been under the care of Mr Zaf Naqui for RH & LH Dupuytrens Contracture and LH Carpel Tunnel. The operations to control the conditions were all carried out professionally, successfully and with very little pain in the weeks after the operation. I would recommend Mr Naqui for his skill, knowledge and expertise.
Since being referred by my GP Dr Naf Naqui has dealt with my case. I have nothing but admiration for his professional surgeon skills. I presented myself with a very painful wrist injury after a fall at my place of work. It was a very painful and extremely disabling injury to my right wrist . I had sustained quite severe tears to the tendons in my wrist . The injury had kept me from returning to my employment which involves a lot of physical ,heavy manual work .As I am right handed the work was t heavy for me to return for over 9 months recovery. The recovery is all down to the diagnosis after an MRI Scan revealed quite severe trauma to my wrist tendons after my unfortunate accident at my place of work. Dr Zaf Naqui ,operated via keyhole surgery to repair quite extensive damage to my wrist tendons. I can only thank him for helping me to return to my employment at full capacity after only 2 months of his surgical procedure to repair the badly damaged tendons in my wrist . I would not hesitate to recommend him as your hand wrist surgeon ,My recovery after his procedures are outstanding. I have no pain ,full use f my wrist and hand functions ,and most importantly to myself ,I have returned to my employment at full capacity . Dr Zaf Naqui ,is not only a brilliant surgeon ,he is a caring ,professional and a fantastic person to have had the pleasure to meet . Lawton Berry
i had a scapholunate ligament rupture, mr naqui operated on my wrist while i was awake, local nerve block on my arm, i was very weary of this , as i thought i would be out cold for the procedure , but the whole team who took care of me were very calming. in fact i had a lovely chat with a nurse while being operated on, i am well on the way to getting back to normal mobility, big thanks to all your team
I cannot recommend this doctor enough. I have been a patient of his for several years due to a long term wrist condition. I had been seen previously by two different doctors at other hospitals who were not able to diagnose my wrist condition but Mr Naqui did! He explains any findings or treatment clearly and in a way that makes sense to people like myself who have no medical knowledge. He has a lovely calm manner that always puts me at ease and is a genuinely nice man. He has a great rapport with other members of his team including students who learn so much from him. He has also treated both my mother and daughter in the past and he has given them excellent care too.
