“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. ”

“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. ”

“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 most impressed with the level of care and professionalism from all staff, from his secretary and the admin team, those working on the wards, to those in theatre and I am genuinely unable to find fault.”

Martin Goldingay

June 2016

“I wish to express my heartfelt thanks for the treatment afforded me by Mr Ishaque and also that of all the staff at The Priory Hospital, following a number of inpatient and outpatient appointments over an extended period. During a number of inpatient stays at The Priory Hospital, I was most impressed with the level of care and professionalism from all staff, from his secretary and the admin team, those working on the wards, to those in theatre and I am genuinely unable to find fault.  ”

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

Gale Gallagher

“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.”

“Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.”

“ I had the confidence in knowing exactly where to go to get fixed once again. ”

Nigel Barrett

June 2016

“I am one of the few repeat (unlucky?) customers who has suffered a recurrent disc herniation.  Mr Ishaque performed surgery on my spine in October 2013 and I made a full recovery, I was able to return to cycling and golfing which proved impossible before surgery.   Following surgery I had over 2 good years, more or less pain free. Then in February 2016, I started to experience symptoms very similar to the ones experienced before my surgery. ”

“Every consideration and concern, to break the cycle of pain I was in, appeared sincere, considered and most genuine.”

Anne Pinder

June 2016

“I first met Mr Ishaque in February after suffering months of debilitating back pain, having sought medical advice, chiropractic treatment and massage therapy. I wish I had gone sooner. Both my husband and I were put at ease instantly by Mr Ishaque's gentlemanly, courteous manner.”

“Thank you for putting me and my life back together.”

Steven Hewins

May 2016

“Its been two years since Mr Ishaque and his team of true professionals performed their magic on my spine and I can't thank them enough . Just over two years ago I had acute slipped disks from L 4 to the sacrum, I actually had to be pushed in a wheel chair to his consulting rooms as it was to painful to stand.”

“A surgeon with the perfect blend of expertise, professionalism and kindness that Mr Ishaque has in abundance. ”

Sue Willetts

May 2016

“I cannot express my gratitude for the treatment and care I received from Mr Ishaque and his team. I work in a healthcare environment and cannot remember when I last met a surgeon with the perfect blend of expertise, professionalism and kindness that Mr Ishaque has in abundance. ”

“Yes he is a lovely man, but more importantly he is a remarkable spinal surgeon.”

Brenda Cogzell

May 2016

“If you are looking for the very best spinal surgeon to treat your spine as I was, who knows exactly what is needed, and how to do it then I can assure you Mr Ishaque is your man. I have been a nurse for forty years, and for almost thirty of those years have had episodes of debilitating back and leg pain. In 2012 after experiencing dreadful  pain  continuously for almost two years, and trying various treatments and medications including Morphine which I found difficult to tolerate, I became desperate, and couldn’t see a future with any quality of life.”

“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.”

Geoff Bailey

May 2016

“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 will never be able to thank Mr Ishaque enough for everything he has done for me.”

Samantha Griffin

March 2015

“I will never be able to thank Mr Ishaque enough for everything he has done for me. He and his team have shown me so much kindness and have given me much valued support over the past 11 months, but above all what has kept me focused has been his determination to help me. I am so very grateful to him and all of his team.”

“I can never thank Mr Ishaque and his team enough. I am now living a normal life.”

Jeanette Jordan

March 2015

“I met Mr Ishaque in January 2014 for an initial consultation. From the moment I met him he made me feel comfortable and relaxed. After having a MRI scan we discovered that I had problems with some discs in my lower back. Reluctant to operate we decided to go down the pain relief route via steroid injections.”

“He was very patient and dealt with my frustration professionally and compassionately.”

Paul Holder

March 2015

“I have nothing but praise for Mr Ishaque and his team who have supported me during a very painful phase of my life. I’ll always remember his phrase when advising me to have the root ganglion block injections over intrusive surgery…”Why use a sledgehammer to crack a nut!!” He was so right…Thank you.”

“Within moments of meeting Mr Ishaque I was amazed by his efficiency, within minutes I had an ‘actual’ examination with a doctor, who I could see knew exactly what he was talking about and knew exactly what needed to be done.”

Alfie Ratcliffe

February 2015

“I am a 28 year old Police officer who injured my back around 3 years ago (silly mistake when putting down a door enforcer). I lived with the pain for 3 years and kept it to myself, however in early 2014 the issues became worse to the point I could hardly walk, after having an MRI (on the NHS) I was diagnosed with a slipped disc, given pain killers and signed off work simply to be told I would be referred for physiotherapy which would take weeks. Mr Ishaque managed to fix the problem without any surgery, simply by using a number of steroid injections around the discs. I am now pain free, I feel better than I have for the past few years, which is all thanks to Mr Ishaque.”

“Whilst his calm and articulate speech is welcome, I feel one of his greatest qualities is that he listens to his patients and answers every question as though it were the most important one in the world.”

Steve Solleveld

January 2015

“I was referred to Mr Ishaque with severe back pain that several months of physiotherapy, acupuncture and manipulation had failed to resolve. He took time to listen to my description of the pain and took a detailed history so that he could build a definitive picture of what had happened to me over the years, how my back had had several mishaps before and how I was suffering at the moment. Throughout this initial consultation I was left with the overwhelming impression that this was a caring and professional doctor who really took an interest in my problem and who wished to help me.”

“I was referred to you in September and by October the change was overwhelming.”

Mandy Ward
