Patient testimonial - correction of Dupuytren’s contracture

In 2015 Ian had a procedure to correct Dupuytren’s contracture at Spire Manchester Hospital under the care of Consultant Hand Surgeon, Mr Zaf Naqui.

" I found myself put at ease and relaxed by the level of comfort, reassurance and confidence that the operation would be a success"

To begin with Ian was anxious about the procedure, however while talking about his experience Ian said, “Within minutes of meeting Mr Naqui and Laura Parker, from Physiotherapy, I found myself put at ease and relaxed by the level of comfort, reassurance and confidence that the operation would be a success.

From admission through to discharge on the day of the operation the staff were wonderfully reassuring and supportive. Nothing was too much trouble in fact my visit was probably more comfortable than some hotels I have experienced in the past.

I entered Spire hospital full of trepidation having been frustrated for 12 months with a little finger that was curling over and becoming increasingly inconvenient not to say painful and embarrassing. To be honest, I can't thank Mr Naqui and Laura enough, two people at the top of their game. Why I waited so long or was so worried I know not.In fact I'm looking forward to having the left hand done now.”

07.07.2016 - Mr Chris Peach talks us through preventing upper limb tennis injuries. As we look forward to the Wimbledon final, the lucky few who will travel down to SW19 can dream of sunshine, strawberries and cream and enjoyable tennis, whilst the rest of the club tennis players are staying at home. For those who are continuing to play this summer, it may not be at the forefront of your minds to consider the frequency and burden of injury to the upper limb in what is a non-contact and leisurely pastime.
