Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mahmood "I pride myself on being able to relate to patients on an individual basis and spending the time they deserve so each patient can better understand their medical issues.  I have been fortunate to have trained in both Orthopaedic and Spine Surgery and as such can offer my patients both surgical and non surgical treatment options for the entire musculoskeletal system.  Often times patients are misdiagnosed or non-focused treatments are prescribed which offer little benefit.  Through the proper understanding of a patient's issues an appropriate diagnosis can be made and treatments can be recommended. 

I specialize in the treatment of a myriad of Spine & Orthopaedic conditions, including disorders of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, degenerative spinal conditions, spinal tumors, spinal trauma, and revision spinal surgery.  I also specializes in treating hip and knee arthritis, sports related injuries including shoulder, hip, and knee ailments, and orthopaedic trauma."

Awesome doctor and staff. Efficient, very helpful, empathetic, knowledgeable. They go above and beyond. With no other orthopedist available for days or weeks, Dr. Mahmood saw me same day, and personally spoke with my insurance company to get same day clearance for necessary mri with stat result priority. His staff are equally great in what they each do and called around to schedule mri test same day at location that had an opening and was convenient to me. Great stuff. If you need to see a great

I truly appreciated that little pressure was put on me to go to surgery. I was given options and given great explanations of what the issues were and what was my best options.

Dr. Mahmoud performed surgery on me in 2012. I was out same day and on my feet the following day. I had no issues and have been living my life for the past four years with no problems. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mahmoud. He gave me my life back.

Compassionate physician with great bedside manner.
in Pompton Lakes, NJ |
Great bedside manner, really knows his stuff. Helped me with a complex spinal issue and tried everything but surgery. In the end I had to get surgery but was up and about walking without pain about a week later. Sarah his PA is very nice too and is very intelligent and thorough.
in Butler, NJ |
Went to see Dr. Mahmood after being referred by my primary care guy. He's very smart and knowledgeable but he actually listens. What I thought was a serious problem was actually due to me sleeping with my elbow bent. He was a second opinion and I'm glad I saw him because the first guy scared me and told me I needed surgery. Thanks Sarah and Dr. M.
in Totowa, NJ |
Dr. Mahmoud is probably the best Dr. I have ever been treated by. He ks honest and direct and gives all relevant information needed to make an informed decision about treatment (cons vs pros). I have family members that treat with him as well and I can'tt even begin to tell you how amazing he is. I appreciate the honesty and integrity of Dr. Mahmoud and would recommend anyone and everyone I see to go to him
in Middletown, NJ |
I saw Dr. Mahmood in his MIddletown location. I have been evaluated by two other spine surgeons all who were too eager to operate. Dr. Mahmood took the time to explain my condition and recommend conservative treatment first. While I did have some relief it was not enough. Dr. Mahmood recommended a less invasive surgery which went great and I can now enjoy my life once again So glad I found him.

Clifton, NJ |
Dr. Mahmood was the only Doctor (out of 4) that sat me down and explained everything to me. I never felt rushed and always felt like he was actually listening to me and my concerns. He was caring and compassionate, as well as his coworkers and office. Not to mention, he did a great job on my back and I feel great! Thank you!!
