The Alexandra Hospital

I saw Mr. Naqui at the Alexandra Hospital for an ongoing discomfort and pain in my right hand ring finger. From my initial consultation to having the procedure and the aftercare, the whole experience from start to finish were exceptional. I would like to say a big thank you to Mr. Naqui’s secretary Donna for arranging my appointments as well as Mr. Naqui himself and his great team have all been amazing throughout. Recovery was virtually painless and my scar from the procedure have healed really well as it’s now hardly noticeable (just after 4 weeks). I would highly recommend Mr. Naqui to anyone needing hand surgery.

The Alexandra Hospital

I have had treatment from Mr Naqui for trapeziectomy operations in both hands over the last four years at the Spire and Alexander Hospitals. He has always been professional in his work ethic and ably assisted behind the scenes by Donna Clarke his Secretary. My last operation was for the excision of a ganglion and the release of right trigger thumb. This was followed up by physiotherapy and is now pain free.

I had a really good experience in Dr Naqui’s care for a wrist surgery. The entire procedure was painless at the hospital and afterwards and my injury has completely healed 3 months after the surgery. His team was always responsive and proactive in scheduling appointments. I would highly recommend him.

I required Carpal Tunnel surgery on my wrist. The experience I received all the way through was exceptional from Dr Naqui and his team.

I was treated with kindness and consideration throughout, and I was always kept regularly informed of what was going to happen. Everything happened within a convenient timeframe, and the surgery has improved my wrist mobility considerably.

Dr Naqui is one of the most pre-eminent hand and wrist surgeons in the UK, and this really shone through with the exceptional level of care I experienced. I would definitely recommend to others!

I’ve had a very positive experience with Dr Naqui and his team, from his secretary to his team in theatre. Dr Naqui is an expert in his field and still very approachable and clear at explaining the suggested treatment. I have been suffering from hand and fingers pain, due to either arthritis or carpal tunnel, I was advised a personalised treatment that has seemed to work wonders so far as the pain has completely disappeared. Thank you Dr Naqui and team. Highly recommended.
