Testimonials

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

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

Monica Hynes

October 2020

“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

“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.”

Lizzie Mellor

“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.”

Mike Fellows

“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

February 2020

“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.”

Margaret Boland

“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

“When I was referred to Mr Ishaque I had excruciating pains in my back and legs. Physiotherapy and pain killers had no effect and I had difficulty sitting, standing and walking.”

“Thank you for giving me my life back.”

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.”

“He immediately made me feel at ease with his warm smile and kindness, courtesy and professionalism.”

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.”
