Dr Mokawem really did a great job with my surgeries and ensuring I was fully prepared in the lead up to it. My surgeries were very complex and I am satisfied with the outcome. My only point for consideration is that I wished I got to spend more time with him pre and post surgery at the times I was seen by one of his consultants. Messages can get misunderstood when passed to him through a 3rd party and consultants don’t necessarily have the 1st hand experience of the journey I’ve been on. I have seen many other surgeons but I trusted Dr Mokawem from our first consultation and I stand by my decision to trust him with my surgery, my spine, and my life!

I really liked Mr Mokawem. He explained things really clearly and came to see me every day after surgery to check on my progress. I felt totally safe and reassured by his professionalism. He has done a great job on my spine and I am really happy with the result he achieved.

I am 72 years old and regrettably have considerable experience of Consultants at various hospitals in recent years, which have ranged from being near disastrous to absolute exceptional brilliance. Mr Mokawem definitely comes under the later category because before I met him him for the first time in 2020 I had not been able to walk, at all for 3 years and was confined to a wheelchair. I had been refused surgery by my local hospital and I had approached my GP in desperation for help and he referred me to Mr Mokawem. Although our first “ meeting “ was a virtual one carried out over Zoom within a matter of minutes I was aware that I was in the hands of an exceptional Consultant his kind, caring and extremely knowledgeable approach made me feel instantly at ease. He showed me using my latest MRI scan exactly what was causing my disability and then explained concisely, what my options where and so initially I opted for a further set of spinal injections. Unfortunately although these provided temporary relief by April 2021 my “ mobility “ had significantly deteriorated and the pain had reached a level beyond my ability to tolerate so in a telephone conversation I asked him for surgery which he immediately agreed to arrange. Six months later I was admitted to hospital for the first of 2 operations, the 2nd to take place 7 days later which if successful could restore an unknown level of mobility. On the day I was admitted, a Sunday, Mr Mokawem came to see me to explain exactly what the 2 operations involved and what how I would feel afterwards, as I hadn’t had any form of surgery for 65 years which was both very considerate and reassuring.After the first operation, which involved removing a displaced disc and then fitting a spacer fitting a rod to correct the other spinal deformities. He then built at the base of my spine a titanium cage and inserted screws which would be tightened during the 2nd operation to hold all his work in place. The day after my 2nd operation I started physio working and then on the next day I took my first pain free steps in over three and a half years and I am now back home and able to walk freely without any pain. So to summarise, Mr Mokawem is a charming gentleman who cares above and beyond for his patients and he is also a brilliant surgeon and I would unhesitatingly recommend him to any patient. I will certainly never forget his kindness and his surgical brilliance which has completely restored my ability to lead a normal life. In short he has given me the opportunity to have a whole new life to enjoy with my wife.Miraculous

Mr Mokawem, Michael is without doubt the best Consultant I have been treated by over many years and multiple previous surgeries. The procedure to rebuild my lower back has completely changed my life, taking away constant unbearable pain and whilst it is still early days he has given me hope for the future. He is kind, considerate and takes time to explain what is wrong and what needs to be done. He was willing to offer help when others would not. My surgery was at the Royal National Orthopaedic hospital and the care there was excellent from start to finish with Michael involved and managing my care throughout.
