I consulted Prof Warwick to treat my Dupuytrens Disease because of successful similar procedures he had performed on an old friend of mine. I also discovered he has leading experience in the Xiaplex treatment procedure, important to me as a violinist, anxious to avoid any post-operative impact on my playing capability. As expected, I found him to be highly professional and knowledgable in his examination and treatment. The Xiaplex and needle fasciotomy procedures he performed on two fingers of my left hand, while not a pain free experience, has turned out to be completely successful at straightening my fingers. After 6 weeks, I was able to return to playing the violin as before, unaffected by the surgery. I am completely happy with my experience, and would gladly return to him in future should the need arise.

What can I say? Professor Warwick carried out a trapeziectomy on my right hand in November 2018, and less than 4 months on I have absolutely no pain, and the range of motion in my thumb is better than prior to the surgery, and as good as my other hand. I am still building strength, but can open jars and use a tin opener which is something I have not been able to do for some time. I would highly recommend this surgeon and am really pleased with what has turned out to be a life changing procedure. Thank you so much.

I had uncomfortable scar tissue on my hand after an operation for Dupuytren’s Contracture . Professor Warwick was able to repair the damage with a skin graft and within 6 weeks it was fully healed and the hand back to normal. He is very considerate and professional. I was so fortunate to find an expert to help me

Professor Warwick performed a trapeziectomy on my right hand on 4 March at the Wessex Nuffield Hospital in Chandlers Ford. I have given the following feedback to the hospital in relation to his team. "I have been moved to give feedback because I was blown away by the amazing positive experience I had at the Wessex Nuffield last week. From the receptionist to the ward clerk, booking in nurse, staff nurse, physio, anaesthetist, nurse administering the pre med, the guys in the theatre side room, the female nurse chaperone, theatre staff who I was not able to personally meet, the surgeon, the nurses in recovery and the catering staff, I received nothing but a professional and friendly well integrated service. For the first time that I can remember I experienced no effects from the GA and was able to eat a lovely post op meal before going home just 6 hours after admission."

Operation and after care was excellent. Just one note. I feel that when the hospital discharge you it would be good to give patients a prescription for pain killers for when the anaesthetic wears of as paracetamol to weak.

I would highly recommend Professor David Warwick after recent Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery. From the first consultation through to surgery I found him very courteous providing me with all the information and advice I needed to decide which option I should proceed with. Throughout he was very professional and in my opinion a first class surgeon.

Delighted with the surgery you have done for trigger finger. I didn't like the tornequet bit much but was amazed how little pain there was over the days following the op. Your skills and me doing as I was told for once, was a winning combination.

I found Professor Warwick very easy to talk to. He did not not confuse me with complicated medical terms and the diagram which he gave me (drawn as he explained what treatment he suggested) was easy to follow and to refer to later. He also made it clear there would be pain for some time after the operation but this should clear (which it has). He gave me the choice whether to proceed or not and so I felt in control at all times. I am pleased to say my badly deformed nail and cuticle have now grown back properly (and I can wear nail varnish again!) and the permanently sore open cuticle has healed. The wound has healed so perfectly that you can only see it if you look very closely. I suspect most people are unaware the finger has been operated on. I have every confidence in his work and would have no hesitation in contacting him again should I ever need further treatment on my hands.

The most professional service I have encountered from start to finish. Professor Warwick and his team were flexible enough to Schedule my operation around a very limited window of opportunity I had due to work commitments. The results exceeded my expectations. The explanation, treatment and after care was superb. David and team also made sure that any questions via email are answered very promptly. Everything is clearly explained, options are discussed in detail, expected results given and aftercare scheduled. Simply outstanding!
