Carol Lines

September 2019

“After years of constant back pain I sought professional help. After reviewing several consultants accreditations, I decided on Mr. Ishaque and what a good choice it turned out to be.”

Deborah Kay

August 2019

“From the bottom of my heart I would like to sincerely thank Mr Ishaque and his team. In 2008 I underwent surgery for disc herniation. In May of this year 2019 I had really bad pain in my legs and buttocks due to another disc herniation. I could not put my own shoes on or dress without help.”

“The preparation for the operation was excellent with a high level of explanation and the care and attention by both Mr Ishaque and the anaesthetist Dr da Silva being very reassuring.”

John

April 2019

“My surgery took place just three years ago following deterioration in my ability to walk or stand due to a spondylolisthesis at L4/L5. I am writing this testimonial having not only recovered following Mr Ishaque’s treatment but also being now both fitter and more flexible than for several years before my operation.”

“More importantly, I would like to sincerely thank you for what turned out to be a brilliant assessment back in November!”

Peter Davies

March 2019

“More importantly, I would like to sincerely thank you for what turned out to be a brilliant assessment back in November! You advised against further surgery and, as I was in very severe pain at the time, it felt inconceivable that the problem might resolve itself without surgery. Naturally I followed your advice and only three and a half months later you were proved to be absolutely correct. You then took the time to explain my condition in lay-mans terms so that I can try to avoid those things that are likely to create problems down the line.”

“I cannot thank Mr Ishaque and his team enough and would thoroughly recommend his services to anyone who has chronic back pain.”

Geraint Francis

February 2019

“I had been in pain for over 12 months, with broken sleep during that period, which had taken its toll on my quality of life. I had a consultation with Mr Ishaque in October 2018 and was given a number of injections into my spine in November 2018. The outcome has been amazing with the first real night sleep in ages, which was priceless; I cannot thank Mr Ishaque and his team enough and would thoroughly recommend his services to anyone who has chronic back pain.”

“I could not recommend him more highly, he has changed my life for the better.”

RW

December 2018

“After being told by other consultants that there was nothing that could be done to ease the symptoms of my trapped sciatic nerve, I met Mr Ishaque who told me that surgery was not an option but injections into my spine may relieve the pressure and make life more comfortable. I could not recommend him more highly, he has changed my life for the better.”

“Mr Ishaque has been caring, professional and very thorough throughout.”

Lillie

December 2018

“Mr Ishaque has been truly wonderful, I have struggled with back pain for many years. After an initial consultation and MRI the procedure was booked in within two weeks and the after care was second to none, all carried out quickly and efficiently.”

“I cannot praise the treatment given by Mr Ishaque and his team enough.”

David H

November 2018

“I cannot praise the treatment given by Mr Ishaque and his team enough. I had an accidental fall from a ladder last year then, several months later, I was shovelling snow when I further damaged my lower back. The pain was terrible and after several weeks of treatment by my GP with no improvement I consulted Mr Ishaque on the recommendation of a friend. ”

“Mr Ishaque had an incredibly friendly bed side manner.”

GK

August 2018

“I can’t thank Mr Ishaque and his extended team for the outstanding professional and personal care  programme I received for an incredibly painful back condition. Mr Ishaque had an incredibly friendly bed side manner and his anaesthetist Dr Da Silva was equally as charming making me feel completely at ease throughout my treatment.”

“Mr Ishaque and the team of staff working with him have provided an exemplary professional service.”

Alan Weale

August 2018

“ had been suffering a great deal of right sided leg and hip pain as well as low back pain for 6 months when my GP agreed to refer me to Mr Ishaque for a consultation. I had been on codeine based medication for much of these 6 months as well as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Naproxen and Ibuprofen both tablets and topical gel. Walking and standing in particular were very painful. ”

“This change about is directly the result of immediately getting the right advice from the right professional person.”

Charles Eveniss

July 2018

“In May 2018, I requested the name of a consultant orthopaedic spinal surgeon from my chiropractor, because of my on-going severe back pains, problems with walking and that I was starting to stoop and bend forward like my late ninety-three-year-old mother.”

“Mr Ishaque has tried so hard to help me and I am so grateful to him.”

Sylvia Elaine Adams

June 2018

“I am happy to report that although I have a degenerative scoliosis, the procedure Mr Ishaque performed on me which I understand was a bilateral L3/4, L4/5 Denervex Thermo-coagulation and Capsular Debridement Rhizolysis, has virtually totally removed my central back pain. ”

“He was always willing to explain things and spent time to ensure  that I fully understood what he was advising.”

Helen

June 2018

“I was referred to Mr Mushtaque  Ishaque in May  2015, after increasing lower back pain, bent back, and  increasing discomfort on walking. At the time I was nearly 76 years old. Mr Ishaque was extremely kind and helpful, and ordered further diagnostic tests to ensure we had a correct diagnosis, which turned out to be degenerative scoliosis with significant spinal stenosis.”

“Mr. Ishaque is a kind and caring man who inspires confidence from the outset.”

Jill Powell

May 2018

“I arrived at Mr. Ishaque‘s office in a wheelchair after a year of severe pain, despite strong pain medication. Mr. Ishaque is a kind and caring man who inspires confidence from the outset, after tests confirmed the severity of my sciatica he arranged for me to have the appropriate treatment and I am delighted to say that my follow up appointment saw me walking unaided into his office. I cannot express how grateful I am to this amazing gentleman and his team.”

“I would thoroughly recommend Mr. Ishaque as an exceptional consultant.”

Derek Smith

January 2018

“I was referred to Mr Ishaque, following a continuing issue with my back and right leg. I had a persistent, quite debilitating ache in my right calf and ankle. After a consultation with Mr Ishaque, it was determined that, due to a long standing scoliosis in the lower back, the pain was sciatica based. ”

“A professional medical individual who can truly change your life for the better.”

Nick Reid

November 2017

“Born in 1973 I have lived most of my life with lower leg and back pain until in 2009 I had my first MRI scan which revealed an abnormal spinal chord. Since 2009 I had been treated by a variety of Pain Management Treatments with marginal to no impact. ”

“Mr Ishaque is clearly very knowledgeable in his field and I felt that is was in a very safe pair of hands.”

Julie Watkins

November 2017

“I would like to thank the wonderful Mr Ishaque and his team, in particular Linda and Dr Da Silva for all of the care and attention which they have provided me with over the last couple of years or so.I have suffered with a bad back for some years now due to Degenerative Disc Disease and Facet Joint Arthritis. ”

“When I met Mr Ishaque he immediately put me at ease and understood the pain I was going through.”

Diane Price

September 2017

“In March 2015 I was suffering from sciatica and in a lot of pain.  I had several sessions with an osteopath but the symptoms were not improving.  My osteopath recommended Mr Ishaque because she thought steroid injections may help me.  When I met Mr Ishaque he immediately put me at ease and understood the pain I was going through.  My MRI scan showed a cyst and a disc bulge both pressing on the sciatic nerve and spondylolisthesis.  I was soon booked in to have my first injections followed by physiotherapy.”

“I would like to start by paying tribute to  Mr. Ishaque and his team a very caring and considerate man  also a very friendly man but equally very professional  this also goes for the team  that work with Mr. Ishaque.”

Paul Benson
