Despite being on medication for a number of weeks, the pain in my lower back, leg and foot had become excruciating when I saw Mr Ishaque at my initial consultation. I am an ex-rugby player and had had a few injuries in my time, but had never experienced pain like this. I found Mr Ishaque to be highly professional, empathetic and very reassuring.
I was diagnosed following an MRI scan with a herniated disc and Mr Ishaque recommended a spinal epidural injection. I am afraid this did not work for me however, and Mr Ishaque went on to perform a discectomy. Consultant Anaesthetist Mr Da Silva also came to see me prior to the operation and furnished me with all the answers to my questions and was very informative.
The care I received at the Priory was second to none and I would like to offer my sincere thanks to all the team.
I had replaced rugby with golf a few years ago and thanks to Mr Ishaque I am now back on the golf course.
P.S. I would urge anyone reading this who may be suffering with back pain to get in touch with Mr Ishaque without delay; he is an expert in his field.
