Our son has complex needs and during the last 18 years, we have seen many medical professionals. The level of care provided by Mr Mokawem is the best we have experienced. As a surgeon, he is obviously very skilful as the correction of our son's spinal curvature is far better than we had hoped for. As a doctor, before and after the surgery, Mr Mokawem always showed empathy, and was willing to patiently answer our many questions.

My daughter was treated as a joint case with Mr Mokawem as elective surgeries are not currently being carried out in our local hospital. Our initial appointment was via the internet as a ‘zoom’ type meeting. This worked well as enabled my daughter’s dad to attend also. Even though remote meetings can be troublesome with connection and sound delay, we were able to build a good rapport with Mr M and my daughter was happy. At the hospital we couldn’t be more happier with the level of care and information we received. I didn’t feel that the Covid situation negatively impacted our care - just a shame I wasn’t able to shake his hand for a job well done.

Mr Mokawem is a very engaging and caring Consultant. He was the first doctor to give me hope for a brighter future where all other doctors had failed. He is very attentive and listened to my problems and symptoms and ordered an number of scans. Once the scan results came back I revisited Mr Mokawem and he went through each scan and told me in layman's terms the results and how he could help me if I had tried all other avenues in reducing my back pain. He came across as a person who genuinely wanted to help me and others like me find a solution to my long term back pain. Once surgery was agreed Mr Mokawem kept me well informed and told me to call him at any time if there was something I wished to discuss with him. Before surgery he discussed in detail each procedure and what to expect post surgery clearly and concisely. Post surgery he came to see me every day and was genuinely happy for me that the operations had been successful in removing sciatic pain completely and reducing my back pain immensely. In my opinion I do not believe Mr Mokawem can improve to give even greater care, the care I received from him was exceptional.

My son (15) was referred to Mr Mokawem for spinal surgery & we are so glad he was. Mr Mokawem really put my son at ease, explained the position clearly & was honest with the risks. We felt we received excellent care at all times. The results of the surgery were unbelievable and if people did find themselves in the unfortunate position of needing spinal surgery, we really couldn't recommend Mr Mokawem more highly.

My daughter was diagnosed with scoliosis at our local hospital. We had private medical insurance and therefore we looked to find a consultant that could help our daughter. I read many consultants resume, but Mr Mokawem's was very informative and listed his medical achievements, this gave me the confidence to arrange an appointment. Based on what I had read we arranged the initial consultation. Mr Mokawem had seen the X-ray from our local hospital and then did an examination of our daughter and confirmed she has what was known as idiopathic scoliosis, and what this meant. Explained that due to the severe curve, a brace wouldn't correct it, it could get worse, and the only way to correct it was to have surgery. If we didn't have the surgery then the curve would more than likely get worse. As a family we was told the next step, which was getting an MRI to check that it was only the idiopathic scoliosis and then go from there. At every visit and x-ray going forward Mr Mokawem would update us with the progression of the curve and after trying a brace to help slow or maintain the curve. We came to the decision that my daughter would like to have the surgery. Mr Mokawem in depth told us of all the risks that are involved with surgery and the recovery period. Mr Mokawem has a very calming manner and I never felt rushed or that my time was up. Always answered any questions and I generally felt that we have made the right decision in appointing Mr Mokawem as our consultant. All communication via email or phone with his private practice manager was excellent too.
