Testimonials

We’re proud to have helped hundreds of patients with their health issues. Below is a small selection of their testimonials.

“What a fantastic and professional service I have received, helping me to avoid surgery and return to running again.”

May 2021

“I was suffering from constant lower back and right leg pain, following a MRI scan, a nerve root block injection and several physiotherapy sessions, I am now pain free and back to living my best life, within 3 months, all thanks to Professor Ishaque and his brilliant team.”

“I have found Professor Ishaque very open and honest about my condition and very clear around what to expect.”

April 2021

“A few years ago I began suffering from pain in my lower back, which grew steadily worse over time to the point where I decided to seek medical help. Initial consultations, not with Professor Ishaque, concentrated around hip damage but the scans showed everything was fine and the only advice I was given was to have physiotherapy. This didn’t help at all but fortunately my physiotherapist recommended Professor Ishaque and I’m very glad she did.”

“Professor Ishaque is sympathetic and supportive and I am now able to walk without pain for the first time in 5 months. I must also give praise to his efficient secretary Linda.”

Paul Brookes

“Having suffered back and calf pain, which were not being improved by physiotherapy, since October, I contacted Professor Ishaque who was recommended by my physiotherapist. From the first, thorough, detailed telephone consultation in early January, I knew I was in good hands. ”

“Professor Ishaque has a very caring approach to patients, putting them totally at ease, fully explaining the problems and reassuring patients that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”

“Many thanks for your help over the past few months. I have just had my follow up consultation with Professor Ishaque and I related to him how pleased I am with the result of my procedure that took place at Heath Lodge Clinic. I think it’s only right that I write a testimonial that I am more than happy for Professor Ishaque to publish so that future patients are aware of what they can expect prior to any contact.”

“Please pass on my thanks and gratitude to the Professor and all staff who took such wonderful care of me recently,  I wanted to let you know how well and pain free I feel following my procedure”

“I would like to place on record my opinion of the treatment I received from Professor Ishaque for back pain. It was very pleasant and an extremely caring experience. I attended the Priory Hospital in Edgbaston for the initial assessment.”

“I cannot recommend Professor Ishaque and his team highly enough.”

J M Mulholland

January 2021

“In February 2013 Professor Ishaque performed major reconstructive surgery on my spine following years of excruciating pain.  The operation was a great success and gave me a new lease of life without back pain. Over the last twelve months I had been experiencing some lower left back pain which radiated down my leg.  I decided to contact Professor Ishaque who immediately arranged an MRI Scan.   This revealed there was a degree of adjacent disease at L2/L3 which is not unexpected given the extent of my previous spinal fusions.”

“He listened carefully and was able to answer all of our questions very clearly.”

Monica Hynes

“I was suffering with intense back pain which affected my whole lower body. I could barely walk, I couldn't sit comfortably, I couldn't drive and I just could not sleep. All of this, on top of the coronavirus pandemic, made for a very miserable time. A doctor that had previously treated my arthritis recommended Mr Ishaque. He was aware that Mr Ishaque would only ever suggest an operation as a last resort. This was something that I was happy to hear.”

“I can pick my two kids up and give them a cuddle without that dreaded pain!”

Luke Bromwich

August 2020

“Though I am only 33, I have suffered with back pain on and off for the best part of 8 years. This has been managed & prevented in the past 2 years by regular 20-30 minute core strengthening exercises fit into my lunch breaks whilst at work. When lockdown was imposed in March, due to childcare commitments and the change in working environment, this routine went out of the window and I began running more than I would normally.”

“My treatment has been excellent and I cannot thank Mr Ishaque enough.”

Pat Hall

July 2020

“Mr Ishaque was recommended to me by a friend and work colleague. My treatment has been excellent and I cannot thank Mr Ishaque enough. I am now pain free and able to walk normally.”

“The pain has reduced so drastically that I have been able to start playing golf again, the first time in 6 - 9 months.”

Stan Morgan

June 2020

“On a personnel note the pain has reduced so drastically that I have been able to start playing golf again, the first time in 6 - 9 months. I can also walk with my wife, 3 -5 miles each day, in the countryside around us. There were times when I thought this may never happen.”

“So very professional and reassuring in all aspects.”

“Mr Ishaque was the most caring, compassionate and empathetic medical professional I have ever been fortunate enough to be treated by. He went above and beyond anything I have experienced with any other medical professional - he is clearly an expert in his field.”

“So, my journey ended today with no more consultations but and woe forbid that I do in the future have any further problems with my spine, the first call I will make is to Mr Ishaque.”

“My Journey with Consultant Spinal Surgeon Mr. Mushtaque A Ishaque .I had for some time felt an ache in my lower back which I put down to age and my sporting activities. Then in February 2019 on a weekend I had refereed a football match, it was cold wet and typical winter day, after the game my back was aching but nothing to cause me to be worried. The following day the weather changed, so I spent 3 hours sitting on a low seat leaning forward and back weeding the garden.”

“Mr Ishaque is a superb orthopaedic surgeon, I trusted him with my life, and he gave me my life back.”

Jerry Quickenden

“In late 2018 I started to experience severe back pain, which escalated rapidly to a pain severity so extreme I didn't know it was possible, and a loss of use of my right leg. I had the report from an NHS MRI scan which contained no diagnosis, and I was taking 5 different pain killers including oral morphine. I found Mr Ishaque through an online search and saw him very quickly. He examined me and did an x-ray and another MRI scan within days, followed by a diagnosis of a spinal cyst.”

“He put me at ease and the treatment I received was life-changing, thank you very much.”

“I saw Mr Ishaque after I developed acute back pain. I could not sit down for longer than five minutes. I dreaded going to bed because of pain spasms if I moved.”

“He took time to listen, in a way no-one else had previously done and noted all aspects of my concerns.”

Wendy Elwell
