“The best news is that recently my husband and I were able to go on holiday abroad again. I really enjoyed it. He commented on the change in me, compared to when we last went on holiday a few years ago. This is the first holiday in a long time that was not ruled by my back problem!”

Stuart Rollinson

August 2013

“I would like to extend my thanks and extreme gratitude to Mr Ishaque for what he has done for me, it is nothing short of amazing. He also has an amazing team working alongside him with Mr Da Silva, a top class anaesthetist and not least, Mrs Linda Hamilton, his PA without, whose help and professionalism, this would have been a much more painful experience”

“I cannot thank the team enough.”


August 2013

“The whole experience was initiated by the contacting of Linda Hamilton, who made every effort to ensure smooth running, consultation with Mr Ishaque who gave me absolute confidence that he could perform a most difficult operation successfully, especially having been told by the NHS consultant that nothing could be done.”

Roger Kendrick

“If only more medical practitioner of all types took this approach today we would all be less inclined to jump to drugs and operations which in some cases are not the best solution.”

“I cannot thank Mr Ishaque, Doctor da Silva and Secretary Linda enough, they have shown me such kindness”


August 2013

Mark Willott

July 2013

“Having an excellent surgeon and medical team. There is no doubt in my mind that my surgery has been such a success due to the skill of Mr Ishaque. His professionalism and manner gave me confidence throughout and his competence as a surgeon is evident in my quick recovery, the neatness of my scar, and the fact that every day is no longer about my back.”

“The skill of a surgeon is also in knowing when NOT to operate and I couldn’t agree more”

H Bates

July 2013

“ cannot find the words to express my enormous gratitude and admiration to Mr Ishaque and his team – Dr da Silva, the anaesthetist who looked after me throughout both procedures and ensured that any pain was kept to an absolute minimum and Linda Hamilton whose professionalism, communication and expertise ensured that all I had to do was literally turn up! Thank you Linda!”

“If you have any back problems do not hesitate to see him.”

Mr R D Phipps
