“Mr Mahmud’s attention, care and professionalism were excellent when he recently conducted my knee arthroscopy for a torn meniscus. He explained the options and subsequent procedure thoroughly and clearly, and instilled confidence in me. The procedure has been successful and I’m well on the way to full recovery. Both consultations, prior and post operation were reassuring and thorough. Many thanks for fixing my knee!“

    After a thorough examination and consultation, during which my questions where answered, Mr Mahmoud suggested I consider a partial knee replacement . I decided to go with this procedure and have been delighted with the results. My target dates for 18 holes of golf and a 10 mile walk were comfortably met. Mr Mahmoud and his staff have at all times been pleasant and professional ... if/when there is a problem with my other knee I know where I will be going !

    I had total hip replacement surgery on Thursday 5th March at the Spire Regency by Mr Mahmud. Everything went really well and I am pleased to say I was discharged on Saturday 7th March. The care I received from Mr Mahmud and his staff before during and after the operation was amazing. I was mobile in no time and the only thing holding me back from golf was Covid 19. I would highly recommend Mr Mahmud to anyone.

    From my very first meeting with Mr Mahmoud, I felt confident and totally reassured that my knee problem would be corrected. Although at 49yrs a Complex Total Knee Replacement seemed very daunting and the only option, my complete trust was totally justified after surgery. I’m now four month’s post surgery and have a knee that is stable, painless and I’m able to enjoy activities such as walking, going to the gym and hopefully in time cycling. My dog has never been so happy.😀

    Hip Surgery
    I am a retired Army officer I had retired from the armed forces after 35 years’ service. I had total right hip replacement surgery on 13th June 2019 at Spire Regency Hospital the surgeon was Mr Tahir Mahmud. This is a review of that surgery. At the time of my surgery I had just recovered from fractured back surgery that did not go well so I was very sceptical of the very much needed hip replacement. I was in dreadful pain, very confined and unable to walk far and unable to function properly on a daily basis. Mr Mahmud convinced me that the hip replacement would transform my life, I am glad to say he was absolutely correct the hip surgery has completely changed my life for the better. I am now able to walk, play golf and use the gym. I was delighted with my experience at Spire Regency Hospital under the care of Mr Tahir Mahmud. The hospital was spotlessly clean, the nurses were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for Mr Mahmud I did say at the time that Mr Mahmud has a very gifted ability, a very rarer talent. I would fully recommend the Spire and Mr Tahir Mahmud without hesitation.

    The surgery and aftercare experience were very supportive. The nine centimetre scar is neat and unobtrusive and there is no discomfort from the new joint. Mr Mahmud explained clearly with x rays before and after surgery the journey of hip replacement. The results five months further on are, brisk pain free walking with improved posture, increased energy levels, improved sleep and pain killers are no longer required as before surgery.

    Hip Replacement
    I had a total hip replacement and was grateful for the considerate and efficient treatment from Mr Mahmud. In the initial consultation he took time to explain my condition clearly so I could make an informed decision to have the surgery. The operation was carried out on time and I have made a very good recovery. I saw Mr Mahmud before surgery and each day whilst in hospital, and 2 post op appointments. I have received excellent care and would recommend Mr Mahmud without hesitation.

    Unfortunately due to 15 years competing in extreme sports I have had my fair share of injuries, The ACL reconstruction last year performed by Mr Tahir Mahmud was definitely up there with one of the longest and hardest operation/recoveries I’ve dealt with. Mr Mahmud made it much easier from the start of the process to deal with and resolve the injury, He worked with myself to arrange the surgery around events and trips away and was more than happy to rearrange the schedule after a last minute opportunity that was dropped on me to take part in sport in America, which didn’t actually go through but there was never any hard feelings of wasting his time. Mr Mahmud was really understanding that sports meant a lot to me and seemed really interested in getting me back on my feet as soon as possible which was a huge confidence boost after the negative information I’d heard from friends and others that had had the same injury. Spire hospital and Mr Mahmud made the couple of days in hospital for the surgery a Very comfortable environment, I was first down to theatre on the day of the op which always helps with nerves and before that in the early morning I was guided and talked through what was happening by Mr Mahmud Himself in basic terms so I could understand the procedure as best as I could. After the operation the recovery was hard and a long process to get back to full fitness, Mr Mahmud was great in showing interest and guiding me through what was best to get going and what to and not to do to avoid any further injury. A few months went by after the ACL reconstruction and something wasn’t quite right with my knee which was no fault of Mr Mahmud, he was more than happy to get me in and check it out immediately and that led to further key hole surgery that he was very quick to organise himself rather than the usual route of the NHS which would of been a much longer resolution, I was in and out for surgery within a month of the call regarding the problem and everything was well. I’m now just a year down the line touching full fitness and I’ve miraculously managed 7 months of sports and activity since the surgery in October last year which I was worried that wouldn’t happen. Not only was Mr Mahmud a great help to me and a very professional man to deal with throughout my ACL reconstruction he gave the exact same service to my younger brother who was having the same surgery due to a very similar injury as myself, Mr Mahmud worked with us both to arrange the operations just 2 weeks apart from each other, After the surgery he arranged follow up appointments together to save driving to the hospital separately, saving time down the line for other patients and making the experience much easier allowing us to have the same recovery time to work together to get back to full health Overall a fantastic doctor thats succesfully helped my brother and myself and as importantly to us both was always very welcoming with a smile on his face Thanks Matthew Hockenhull

    My experience was overwhelmingly positive from first consultation to advice and information through to surgery and post op follow up. I felt listened to and well informed at every step. Any questions I had were handled with great knowledge but also patience and a calming manner. The procedure was also well organised, preparation was excellent and I was seen afterwards both immediately post op and in follow up to ensure that the operation was a success. Excellent care and a great success

    I went to see Mr Mahmud about a problem with my knee and after being advised of all the options I decided to have an arthroscopy. From the initial appointment Mr Mahmud explained everything and answered any questions I had. The surgery was quick and the results are amazing. I would thoroughly recommend Mr Mahmud to anyone else needing this type of surgery. He has a very pleasant and professional manner.

    ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) Injury
    At the start of this year I had my second ACL reconstruction (both performed by Dr Mahmud). At the age of 27 I never dreamed that I would have had two knee surgeries, but should I ever go through a similar injury again I would always choose Dr Mahmud as my surgeon. His professionalism, friendliness and above all the level of care he shows to his patients is second to none, as well as his commitment to finding the very best solution. When my injuries first occurred, it was difficult to see a day when I would be back to “normal” - even jogging up the road to catch a bus would be impossible. Thanks to Dr Mahmud, I recently ran my first half marathon, I’m back to playing sports, and I’m stronger and fitter than I’ve ever been. Each day is now pain free and I’m back to doing the things I enjoy - I’ll forever be thankful and couldn’t recommend him more.

    I work with Mr Mahmud in private hospital. He has excellent clinical skills and a extremely caring attitude towards his patients. He would invariably give an honest and professional opinion, and I have always found him trustworthy and sincere. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.
