The Alexandra Hospital

After breaking my wrist in a fall, I was treated at an NHS hospital , where they re-set my wrist. However the wrist was set incorrectly and I suffered pain and discomfort for several months. I decided then to seek further treatment to try to rectify the problem and made an appointment to see Mr Naqui. Throughout my treatment I felt confident and reassured every step of the way.

Donna, Mr Naqui’s secretary, was amazing and very accommodating and supportive from the initial appointment right through to the end. Mr Naqui explained the procedure he was going to do during the operation and despite me feeling anxious following my initial treatment elsewhere, he filled me with confidence and reassured me each step of the way. Although the operation was quite complicated due to the way it had been set, Mr Naqui was amazing and with the aftercare and physio I was given I am pleased to say it is back to a place I never thought it would be. I would not hesitate in recommending Mr Naqui and his team to anyone needing hand /wrist surgery. I am delighted with the service he and his team provided.

Thank you Mr Naqui.

Spire Manchester Hospital

I was referred to Mr Naqui, due to a cyst in my wrist, at the Spire in Didsbury. I was seen very quickly, and he clearly and helpfully explained all of my options. I was booked into surgery efficiently by the hospital staff, and the care and treatment I received on the day of surgery was incredibly kind and considerate. Prior to discharge, I was booked in for all follow up appointments with the nurses, physiotherapy and for my 2 month review with Mr Naqui. I highly recommend the treatment by Mr Naqui and the staff at the Spire.

I saw Mr Naqui at the Alexandra Hospital with “trigger thumb”. The condition was really uncomfortable and getting worse. Following an initial consultation I was given a steroid injection in the base of my thumb. The whole appointment took no longer than 20 minutes. Within a couple of weeks my thumb was completely back to normal. I was very impressed with the professional and efficient way I was cared for. Thank you to the whole team!
