Louise Walters

“I very gingerly walked into Mr Ishaque’s consultation room in February 2017, he ordered an MRI and an x-ray of my back in a standing position.It was discovered that I had spondylolisthesis grade 2 L4/5  L5/S1. Within a short space of time my first round of steroid injections was complete and I started Physio Therapy.”

Charles Hunter

April 2017

“After a very bad fall I was experiencing excruciating pain, night and day, in my back and down my left leg.  I had convinced myself I had damaged my spine irreparably and was facing the prospect of spending the rest of my life in a wheelchair, a truly terrifying thought.  I was taking the maximum amount of pain killers allowed, for many weeks, with little effect.   A friend recommended that I try to obtain a consultation with Mr Mushtaque Ishaque, which I was fortunately able to do.”

“Thank you for giving me back a bright future.”

Sue Lebedev

April 2017

“My hospital recovery was over the Christmas holiday, but despite that I was visited everyday by the team members, which was a great source of comfort.  I now enjoy keeping up with my young Grand-daughter; something I never thought I would be able to do before my operation.  Thank you for giving me back a bright future.”

“Myself and my family would like to thank Mr Ishaque and his team for making me feel human again”

Paul Davies

March 2017

“On the 16 of March 2016 I went from active but with a little back pain to totally incapacitated and in horrendous pain. I couldn’t walk properly and I was in pain 24 hours a day. I had to sleep on the floor and my GP gave me pain killers and told me to wait 6 weeks. In 6 weeks’ time I was no better. ”

“Mr Ishaque welcomed me with a very compassionate, reassuring smile.”

Janice Poultney

February 2017

“I would like to send my sincere thanks to Mr Ishaque and his team. When I first met Mr Ishaque at the Wolverhampton Nuffield, I was indeed in excruciating pain, unable to walk without the aid of crutches.”

“Mr Ishaque from minute one allayed my fears.”

Rich Fox

February 2017

“For some years now I have been suffering with my back, my lower discs. I saw Mr Ishaque at the Priory Hospital, Edgbaston. Mr Ishaque had worked wonders with a relative who had far more complex issues than myself, and from minute one I knew that I was in the hands of the right person.”

“ However all of the team were fantastic and put me at ease”

Julie Marshall

January 2017

“It is with pleasure that I write this.  I have suffered with back pain for a number of years and simply put up with it believing it was a normal stage of ageing.  However I found the pain levels increasing to the point where I found it difficult to move or even have a comfortable nights sleep.”

“Mr. Ishaque is not only an exemplary orthopaedic surgeon but also very kind and caring. He is approachable, very professional, patient, clear and concise in his explanations.”

Eileen Brown

January 2017

“My husband and I owe Mr. Ishaque and his Team a huge debt of gratitude for the treatment we have both received. Roger fell from the roof of a Combine Harvester some 15 years or so before another surgeon he was consulting for a hip problem, recommended that he see Mr. Ishaque as soon as possible. Roger was in a wheelchair and, quiet apart from the awful pain he suffered daily, he had become prone to huge ‘attacks’ of pain when he was literally unable to move or let anyone touch him. ”

“ I was in considerable pain and could not get through the day without taking prescribed pain killers. ”

Phil Dawson

November 2016

“I would like to take this this opportunity to thank Mr. Ishaque and his team for their professionalism and kindness when treating my condition. To begin with I was referred to Mr Ishaque from the BMI Priory shoulder specialists at the Priory, as they felt  the issue with pain down my right shoulder/arm was more likely to be caused by my neck and not my shoulder.”

“Your priority above anything else is to help your patients get better.”

Kerry & Adam Mitchell

October 2016

“We are writing to show our sincere thanks and gratitude to Mr Ishaque and his wider team at the Priory hospital (Dr da Silva and the nurses)! Mr Ishaque I would like to thank you for fixing me!  At our initial meeting, your positivity, professionalism and kind approach (in a very stressful situation) put me at ease and gave me peace of mind that you were the best man for the job!  The operation you performed gave me my life and health back after several months of pain and suffering!”

“He explained everything in clear, easy to follow terminology and I was more than confident in his professional opinion.”

Richard Wood MIET MCMI

September 2016

“After several years of lower back pain, my doctor referred me to Mr Ishaque at the Nuffield hospital Wolverhampton.  Following a ganglion block back injection procedure, I would like to thank Mr Ishaque and his team for their professionalism, care and rehabilitation advice during in the weeks that followed.  ”

“I've never before had the pleasure of feeling that my consultant is working with me”

Alison Telford

August 2016

“I've played a lot of sport in my life and have had numerous consultants undertake various treatments and surgery. This is the 1st time I've suffered any physical issue that has made me sob and beg for the pain to stop. Mr Ishaque was recommended to me as an incredibly thoughtful specialist who would seek the least invasive opportunities to put me back on my feet, indeed telling me I would be able to do everything I could before I had suffered this issue.”

“Thank you again Mr. Ishaque for giving me back a happy healthy lifestyle!”

Margaret Sweet

August 2016

“I am pleased to have this opportunity to thank Mr. Ishaque and his team for their professionalism and kindness both during and after my treatment at the Priory. I had been recommended to see Mr. Ishaque by a friend after having suffered months of debilitating sciatica which had seriously curtailed my previously very active lifestyle involving walking, mountaineering, rock climbing etc.”

“I wanted to send my sincere thanks to Mr. Ishaque (& his team) for the amazing work they do.”

Cheryl Jasper

August 2016

“I wanted to send my sincere thanks to Mr. Ishaque (& his team) for the amazing work they do. Mr. Ishaque is not only a kind, caring professional, but in my opinion he has worked a miracle getting my life back on track when I thought I'd never be able to walk pain free again, let alone participate in much loved sports  - I can not thank him enough.”

“I felt in safe hands and confident of the advice and support I was being given,”

Karen Cashmore

July 2016

“I cannot praise Mr Ishaque and his team enough for the outstanding treatment I received. All through the treatment process I felt in safe hands and confident of the advice and support I was being given, this made the time less stressful for me. I had a slipped disc which came on after a fall and this immediately changed my life and my day to day duties, having a busy home and 4 year old child, being in pain and immobile was not an option.”

“I was very impressed with your expertise and knowledge”

Mrs K Mann

July 2016

“Just a quick note to thank you in a big way for sorting out my back pain, found you and your colleagues to be very approachable and friendly. The steroids in the lower spine helped immensely. The education you gave after the 10 week process has helped in a big way, I was very impressed with your expertise and knowledge.I have always been reluctant to have any back steroids however this has been fantastic. Thank you again”

“I was truly over-whelmed by his professionalism, understanding and empathy.”

Nigel Seaman

July 2016

“After years of debilitating lower back pain following a previous unsuccessful operation, I was recommended to see Mr Ishaque.  Having consulted a number of other spinal surgeons, who had pretty much written me off, I was truly over-whelmed by his professionalism, understanding and empathy. ”

“Mr Ishaque identified a narrowing in my spine for which he treated me by injection with great results.”

John A Harvey

July 2016

“I have just concluded my treatment from Mr Ishaque after two months. I saw him after exquisite pain in my right lower back which extended over a few days all down my right leg. Because of the pain and pain killers and therefore loss of hunger I lost 12 kilos over the month before I saw him. ”

“Mr Ishaque was amazing he put me at ease from the first appointment right through to the last.”

Gale Gallagher

June 2016

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Ishaque and all of his staff at the BMI Priory Hospital for the exceptional standard of care I was given.  Mr Ishaque was amazing he put me at ease from the first appointment right through to the last. It was the best thing my husband and I did by looking at Mr Ishaque's expertise against other surgeons, and also the testimonials which speak for themselves.”
