About

Dr Taher Mahmud is Clinical Lead for Osteoporosis and Consultant Rheumatology at London Osteoporosis Clinic. He studied at King’s College London and trained in General Medicine at King’s College, St Thomas’ and Pembury Hospitals. Not only this, Dr Mahmud was also an Honorary Consultant at the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Bath.

Dr Mahmud believes in preventive medicine and having personally experienced how the effects of osteoporosis can impact an individual's life (that of his Mother), he appreciates the importance of applying a more passionate and holistic approach to the care of his patients. To this extent, working alongside a whole host of professionals coming from a whole host of medical and non-medical backgrounds, he has supported and launched several campaigns, which aim to raise awareness about the influence and dangers of keeping osteoporosis hidden.

Beyond these pursuits, his medical interests include treatments of osteoporosis, patient feedback and mechanisms of drug side effects. Thus spawned the birth of an innovative health service: along with his medical colleagues, Professor Sir Graeme Catto, Professor Hughes and Dr Mahmud launched The London Osteoporosis Clinic, which is the first clinic entirely dedicated to early and post-fracture screening, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis.

London Osteoporosis Clinic uses the latest evidenced-based NICE-approved drugs and complementary non-drug treatments. Their aspiration is to work with patients, wider healthcare communities, voluntary sector and business enterprises to eradicate osteoporosis-related fractures.

On a more personal level, Dr Mahmud has an interest in the arts and enjoys sports, tennis and running. He was previously Trustee of Great causes, a charity raising funds for cataract operations in the developing world.

I have been consulting Dr Mahmud for the treatment of severe osteoporosis. He has shown the utmost care and consideration and has taken a holistic approach.

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

12-09-2018
I have twice consulted Dr Mahmud. On each occasion, I found the consultation helpful and came away with a better understanding of my condition and practical recommendations on how to optimise my bone health through exercise and dietary improvements and I have seen some good results.

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

12-09-2018
I would highly recommend Dr Taher Mahmud. He is a highly qualified and experienced Rheumatologist with a special interest in Osteoporosis. At all times I have found him to be courteous, sympathetic and empathic. He is very caring, knowledgable and encouraging. He never rushes me and I feel he answers all my questions in great detail. I have a long term condition and I am confident that he will always be there to treat and support me as I deal with my condition.

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

Although appointment was late I was extremely pleased with the service received from Dr Mahmud. His diagnosis was thorough and considered. I would highly recommend Dr Mahmud.

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

12-09-2018
I was referred to Dr Mahmud by my physiotherapist and when I met him he told me that my pain level at 7/10 was unacceptable and it should be 0/10. I did not believe him obviously as I was under the impression that, with age, you just wear the pain and learn to accept it. However, following the diagnosis and subsequent treatment (with some drugs that have virtually no side affects) I would say that my daily pain level is actually 0. Success to which Dr Mahmud must shoulder credit for sure.....

I am so happy to have sought out Dr Mahmud at the London Osteoporosis Clinic. He has made me understand there are many things I can do myself to improve the osteoporosis diagnosis I had from my GP following a bone scan, and that it is not just a question of taking a prescription drug that inevitably comes with side-effects. He looked at my condition in the round, explained the process of bone break-down and renewal and the factors that influence it. He recommended a programme of muscle-building exercise, supplementation and tests to monitor my bone activity. I would highly recommend him to anyone concerned about osteoporosis.
