I had been experiencing increasing pain and discomfort in my left hip and my GP eventually referred me to a specialist of my choice. I randomly chose the Spire Regency in Macclesfield. My first appointment at the Spire was to discuss my problem and this was when I first met Mr Mahmud. He examined me and concluded I needed a total hip replacement. He explained the procedure in simple terms, described the recovery process and outlined the potential risks of this operation. This would be my first operation at the age of 77 and I have always had a fear of having an operation. However the discussions and explanations provided by Mr Mahmud gave me full confidence in him and what was to be done. Mr Mahmud visited me just prior to the operation going over how he would perform the operation. His attitude and demeanor again filled me with confidence. The operation went extremely well and I am sure this was one of the reasons my recovery was rapid and totally pain free. I can not praise Mr Mahmud and the Spire Regency enough.

I had a Total Hip Replacement in December 2018. From my first meeting with Mr Mahmud in clinic to my discharge in May 2019 I found him easy to talk to, he listened well and I felt very comfortable and confident to ask questions. He was very caring and I was surprised how many times he visited me during my short stay in hospital. After good physio and exercise/walking I am as good as new or will be when I have had my other hip replaced hopefully by Mr Mahmud, in the not too distant future. Thank you for your professionalism, care and attention.

Following a knee injury I had the good fortune of being sent by my GP to see Mr Mahmud. From our first meeting it was clear that he was a consummate professional. Not only was he immaculately dressed, he spoke clearly in plain English and more importantly listened to me as a patient. He quickly diagnosed my condition and arranged an MRI scan. Once the results were back he explained my condition and suggested options that were best suited to me. In the end I decided to plum for the least intrusive option of an Arthroscopy to tidy up and repair my torn meniscus and review the condition of the arthritis within my knee. Before surgery, he visited and put me at ease explaining clearly what procedure he would be completing. Post surgery I was expecting discomfort and pain, in fact I walk out less than three hours later and only had a paracetamol as a precaution. As a result i now have mo discomfort, my knee doesn't lock or give way. It is now only five weeks since surgery and along with some physio sessions I'm ready to return to work as a firefighter. Thank you Mr Mahmud, a true gent and fantastic surgeon.
