    I am so pleased with the outcome of the surgery on both of my thumbs. The relief was instant. Mr Nikkhah explained what I could expect both during and after surgery and it has totally changed my life. I had been in pain for quite some time and was unable to use my thumbs. Mr Nikkhah arranged physiotherapy within a couple of days of my surgery and I was able to use my thumbs again in no time at all. My hands have healed really well and there is now no visible sign that I ever had the surgery. So pleased to have had the surgery and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mr Nikkhah as a plastic surgeon.

    Written words cannot express my gratitude to you. I was incredibly lucky to have you as my surgeon. Not only did you save my left hand but you saved my life. I was able to be with my son on his 15th Birthday and celebrate my 18th wedding anniversary, both in April, and a few days after my accident. Darius, you are an amazing and gifted surgeon and a true gentleman in every sense. Once again, words cannot express not only my gratitude, but the gratitude of my family. Therefore we will always be in debt to you, me personally, will always be reminded how lucky I was to have you look after me. Thank you so much my friend. Yours gratefully Jayant

    Dr Nikkah-you are amazing I would highly recommend Dr Nikkah. Not only is he considerate, supportive and humble but he is a highly skilled surgeon. He is an amazing advocate for the patient and has gone out of his way to ensure my DIEP surgery was booked in. He worked directly with the insurance company arguing my case and working over the weekend to provide supporting information. The surgery went well and he went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable and looked after. Dr Nikkah is a fantastic surgeon and my scaring has been minimal and the results excellent. Thanks you Dr Nikkah for everything you have done for me and my family

    Dariush is an excellent colleague and plastic surgeon who is providing his expertise on breast reconstruction to our breast cancer patients in the NHS. We do run joint clinics for our breast cancer patients and provide an evidence based care. He is a well trained hand and microvascular surgeon, who cares for his patients with good surgical outcomes and I will strongly recommend him.
