  • Summary

    Clinical Practice: Mr Naqui works within the NHS as a Consultant Hand, Wrist & Upper Limb Surgeon at Salford Royal Foundation Trust. His practice comprises all open and arthroscopic hand and wrist procedures including complex tertiary referrals from other hospitals.

    His current clinical interests within the Hand and Wrist include Hand & Wrist sports injuries, minimally invasive Dupuytrens surgery, wide awake hand surgery (WAHS), unexplained wrist pain, one-stop carpal tunnel service, complex wrist injuries and distal radius fractures.

    He takes full part in the Consultant trauma on-call service and is competent in the management of general orthopaedic trauma and complex Hand & Wrist trauma.

    Training: He has had dual training exposure in both Orthopaedic and Plastic Hand surgery. He has previously completed Hand & Upper Limb Fellowships at Wrightington Hospital, an Advanced Training Post (ATP) Hand Plastics Fellowship at University Hospital South Manchester and the prestigious AO Fellowship in Hand Surgery at Harvard University. He has gained wide experience in the management of trauma having trained at a number of excellent trauma units within the North West.

    Academia & Research: His appointment to the Academic SpR rotation enabled him to develop a keen interest in audit and research. He has completed a Masters degree in Orthopaedic Engineering and became the first consultant to be awarded both the British and European Hand Surgery Diplomas in 2013. He has engaged in research throughout the upper limb including Shoulder and Elbow. He lead and co-ordinated a North-West multi-centre prospective randomised controlled trial looking into the management of extra-articular distal radial fractures. He has written a Chapter on Wrist Tendinopathy in the textbook ‘Disorders of The Hand’.

    Teaching & Training Responsibilities: He is an examiner of the European Board Hand Surgery. As Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester, he enjoys regular commitment to teaching and training which includes teaching of undergraduates, work as a PBL tutor and an OSCE examiner. Within his role at Salford Royal, he also acts as a trainer to both Specialist Registrars and Plastic Surgery Core Trainees undergoing Hand Surgery training. He is also involved in the training of British Advanced Training Post (ATP) Interface Hand Fellows. He also assists in postgraduate teaching, delivering lectures on the SpR teaching programme as well as both co-ordinating and acting as an examiner for the regional mock MRCS, FRCS, European and British Hand Diploma exams. He is a co-ordinator and faculty member on surgical courses run for both basic and higher surgical trainees and considers this vital for the future of surgical training.

    Management Responsibilities: He is Chair of the North West Surgical Hand Society and SAS Hand Manchester which facilitate discussion of complex Hand surgery cases. He is actively engaged in the non-clinical and managerial aspects of NHS work. His roles include the position of Specialty Tutor and Lead for Clinical Governance & Patient Safety in Trauma & Orthopaedics. He assists in junior doctor recruitment, pastoral care, assessment and appraisal. 

    Hobbies & Interests: Outside of work his interests include trekking, running and squash. He is learning to play golf. In 2009 he trekked to the summit of Kilimanjaro.
