I consider myself very fortunate in having found Mr Naqui to repair a complicated fracture of my wrist. I had been left with my wrist in plaster and was faced with the prospect of it healing badly, leaving me with restricted movement and probable pain. Mr Naqui explained with great clarity the likely benefits of surgery, as well as pointing out the slight risks. He has a warm, friendly and caring manner. He listens attentively and exudes professional confidence. He is obviously an excellent surgeon. Post op I have had physio sessions with Esther, whose care has been wonderful. I am delighted to have already regained full movement of my wrist and am now working on strengthening it. The scar on my wrist is healing well. I am very pleased with every aspect of my treatment and care and am extremely grateful to Mr Naqui for repairing my wrist. I would highly recommend him.
I have suffered with Dupuytrens Contraction in both hands for many years. I was referred to Mr Zaf Naqui through the NHS two years ago and have been delighted with his care/attention/knowledge of the disease. I had a correctional operation early this year to my left hand and followed the 'post op' procedure and physio. All to date has turned out well and now about to go ahead with a similar op to my right hand. I'm confident all will go well even though this operation will be more invasive and involve a possible skin graft. If this operation goes as well as the first I will be extremely happy.
I have just had a Dupuytrens operation, that was to straighten my ring finger on my left hand. I was very nervous about the operation as I was coping with a bent finger very well and could do most things in my adapted ways. The decision was made and the op went well and what a difference, I did not realise how bad my hand was until it is back to normal again now. The scar is healing well, no pain just a little soreness but nothing much. I have to sleep with my fingers in a splint but that is no concern after the first night it feels normal. I am so glad I was brave and had the operation. Back to normal, what a good Job Mr Naqui has done. Thank you very much, I will not be as hesitant if in the future I need another finger operated on. Thanks again
Mr Naqui is an extremely friendly and helpful consultant. Acted quickly and made sure I received all the support I needed when I broke my wrist. He quickly identified the break and advised potential repercussions. He ensured I had a suitable cast for an upcoming flight and letters needed for the airline. Undoubted skill and excellent bedside manner from start to finish with a fantastic outcome of a fully healed fracture with complete rotation.
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.
