Christine Payne

“After a fall in February this year I suffered the onset of extreme back and leg pain. I saw my GP who diagnosed sciatica and prescribed strong painkillers. The thought of taking painkillers for any length of time was quite daunting plus with the immobility  I was unable to lead a normal active life.”

“I have nothing but praise for Professor Ishaque and his fantastic team given my experiences over the past 3 years and would have no hesitation in recommending him if you are suffering from any kind of lower back, or leg pain.     ”

“Having suffered with lower back pain since my early 20's (I am now 59), which was initially sustained though a football injury and it usually recurred on average every 5 to 7 years. I have always found relief through physiotherapy until I had a recurrence on my lower left had side in 2019 when physio didn't resolve it and I was referred to Professor Ishaque.”

“Many thanks to you and your wonderful team !”

“I would like to thank Professor Ishaque for fixing my back and giving me back my life and my confidence. He has an amazing team around him, and I must thank his lovely Assistant Linda too for all her support and patience too, especially with sorting out administrative issues. I would have no hesitation recommending Professor Ishaque, who is not only an expert in his field, but also affable and puts you at complete ease throughout the process.”

“His personable manner put me at ease immediately in what might have been an anxious and stressful situation.”

Margaret Carpenter

February 2022

“For more than  a year  I suffered with extreme  'burning' pain in my lower back, left buttock and leg.  Many physiotherapy sessions and acupuncture made no difference and an MRI scan detected something more unusual at the base of my spine. I had my first consultation with Professor Ishaque in early December 2021. His personable manner put me at ease immediately in what might have been an anxious and stressful situation.”

“He has been able to help me and get me back on my feet and back to work and most importantly out of pain and off pain medication”

“I have just returned from a trip to Venice, where mum ( 85 this week ) came to see my new home there and we walked around the city — yes, she needs to get her muscles fully fit but I would say 5000 steps pain free to be a miraculous result!! She is a new woman!! So, a huge, huge THANKYOU Professor, from Mum and l;  thank goodness we have professionals like Dr Bahia and yourself who treat older people with the respect they so deserve and with whom we can connect with to obtain answers!”

“Thank you so much for giving me my life back!”

“When I walked into see Professor Ishaque in early June I had excruciating leg pain. The MRI scan from Heath Lodge showed a Herniated disc at L5/S1. Professor Ishaque showed me this clearly and explained to me that the first course of action would be a nerve root block injection which I could have at Heath Lodge clinic in Knowle.”

“Thank you so much for the wonderful treatment I received from you and your team. ”

“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.”

Peter Moore

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

March 2021

“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.”

Terry Street

“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”

Linda Hancock

February 2021

“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,  it’s been a very difficult past year for me and my family not being able to have my routine pain procedures carried out due to COVID they were cancelled four times! ”

“It was very pleasant and an extremely caring experience.”

Beverley Styles

January 2021

“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.”
