Netball has been a huge love and passion of mine since the age of 9, and still is to this day. During my last netball match on 10th April 2016 my right ankle gave way and my knee twisted out to the right. That was it, the excruciating pain hit and the tears ran down my face, thinking I would never get back to playing netball ever again. Straight away we knew that the injury was serious as I couldn’t straighten my right knee and the pain was awful, off to A&E it was, followed by an x-ray. This showed that I may have dislocated my right knee and that’s what I was treated for to start off with. Leaving A&E on crutches not being able to straighten or hardly put any weight on my knee was a huge disappointment for myself, being such an active person
First I must thank Mr Mahmud for giving me a new lease of life by totally replacing my right hip. Mr Mahmud is an extremely professional competent consultant who takes great pride in his work and has a great passion also for it. He is also a very friendly and likeable person whom I would recommend to anyone.
I was a very fit athletic person who had been a rugby union referee at a very high level in England and then Scotland (Division 1 - i.e. top ten in the country). This obviously involved intensive training before and during the season as well as intense matches. After my retirement from refereeing my knees became increasingly painful.
I had always been a very active person, whether it be water skiing, hill walking in the Peak District, or just plain working, especially around the home. I had written a walking book with a colleague, “Peak District Trigpointing Walks”. It was at the latter end of writing this book that the first twinges were felt in the groin area. I put this down to sciatica.
Total Knee Replacement by Mr Mahmud has given me back my independence I was referred to Mr Mahmud after months/years of constant knee pain which was aggravated by exercise and then a fall.
I had a knee replacement 10 years ago which served me well until 18 months ago when I fell whilst walking in Macclesfield Forest. This fall resulted in a lot of knee pain, swelling, and tendon and muscles problems.

Gold medal World Champion performance for Graeme following total knee replacement at Spire Regency Hospital
Graeme Peatfield’s knee problems stemmed back to his teenage road running days as part of his personal recurve archery training which, he subsequently had to give up as he couldn’t walk the distance required per round. This resulted in him swapping to competitive target crossbow shooting over shorter distances.
