Simple quick operation for trigger finger (thumb). Put up with several years of pain and discomfort. Now within a very few short weeks the scar has healed and I have full mobility in my thumb area. More importantly pain free. I know this is a full time fix because Prof Warwick performed two other identical operations, four years ago, for trigger fingers and they are now perfectly normal.

Professor Warwick took the time to provide a detailed explanation of my problem and discussed the treatment to resolve it. Any possible side effects were clearly explained. His manner was always courteous and professional which gave me confidence. He visited me before surgery to remind me of what was being done and after to inform me of the results. Professor Warwick works closely with his team and they all took time to visit me and reassure me. Follow up appointments for physio and consultation were in place before the surgery. I had a successful outcome. I would have no hesitation recommending Professor Warwick to anyone needing the surgery I had.

I was recently treated by Professor Warwick for a Dupuytren’s Contracture, Professor Warwick explained the treatment in detail and I found him, his Secretary and his team very caring and professional at all times. I was treated at The Nuffield, Chandlers Ford - a very calm and pleasant environment which contributed to the good experience

I suffer from Dupuytrens Disease and have consulted Professor David Warwick on several occasions. I am happy to recommend Professor Warwick to anyone who needs treatment or advice on hand surgery. During the initial consultations, he provided step-by-step information on my condition and the various treatment options which were available. Being something of an artist, Professor Warwick's verbal information was often accompanied by very useful sketches illustrating in detail, his proposals. On the day of surgery, Professor Warwick’s bedside manner came to the fore, reassuring both patient and any accompanying relative. When he does run late with his appointments (and this happens with caring professionals who accept that some patients need a little more time than anticipated) he is always apologetic in a way which although totally unnecessary, is very much appreciated. In theatre, he sensitively goes through the hoped for outcome with the patient in a calm but factual manner. One thing Professor Warwick will never do is make false promises. With Dupuytrens patients, he will never say he can make a finger perfectly straight, when he knows this is not possible. I have spoken with others of his patients and this is the one thing we all liked. It gives a patient confidence in knowing a surgeon accepts his limitations in a humble manner rather making false promises. After surgery, he repeatedly checked on my condition, both personally and via his staff who monitor patients regularly. He asked if I had any concerns and spoke about anything not previously covered which had occurred during treatment. Even after discharge, Professor Warwick never ceases to disadvantage himself for others. He instructs patients to come straight back to the hospital if they have any worries and he means just that. On one occasion, when off-duty, he left his family and his Christmas shopping just to check and re-dress my finger, many a surgeon would have just instructed someone in outpatients to take a look. His support staff, from receptionists to nurses, anaesthetists to physios, and, of course, matron, are warm and welcoming. I have noticed how Professor Warwick treats them all with respect and is so appreciative of their help. I even witnessed this when a member of the catering staff brought him some sandwiches and a glass of orange juice one lunch-hour. I have been a patient in the Wessex Nuffield at Chandlers Ford several times both for minor and major surgery. I would not hesitate to recommend this hospital and particularly The Hand Clinic.

Professor Warwick was very clear on what my options were and how long the recovery period would be. After the operation the follow ups were very informative and well detailed so you knew exactly what was going on

Impeccable care from the start and sound advice on my options following a complicated thumb injury. Professor Warwick was the only professional who had anything positive to say about my potential long-term recovery, after 3 months trying to get a correct diagnosis. From the initial consultation, detailed drawing of surgery proposed and also risks explained about the procedure, I felt very confident even before the operation, that this was to be my best option. If I ever wanted to be able to pursue any serious climbing again, or be able to work or carry out day to day activities, the outlined treatment plan set my mind at rest. It was also made quite clear that there would need to be substantial efforts needed on post-operative rehab. This is still ongoing, but I have already regained a very significant amount of strength back in my hand. Some range of movement is still to be recovered and the ability to weight-bear on the recovering joint which I’m regarding as work in progress, but I am confident that I will see (and feel) further improvements. The whole Nuffield team worked seamlessly, giving plenty of time for my endless questions, especially Sarah Keeton who provided excellent physio advice and care during my main rehab stages, & prevented me going too mad too soon. I feel confident in recommending Professor Warwick and the Nuffield Hospital to anyone who is in a similar worrying position that I was 6 months ago. I very nearly lost the use of my thumb and I’m extremely grateful to everyone involved in my care for helping me getting my life back on track. Sue Hazel
