Mr Michael Mokawem
Consultant Spinal Surgeon
MBChB, FRCS (Tr&Orth)
"Spire Bushey is a first class facility, extremely well situated, enabling me to provide an excellent standard of care to patients at both the outpatient diagnostic centre and the hospital."
I specialise exclusively in spinal surgery with a special interest in minimally invasive surgery when appropriate. I treat back pain, sciatica, disc problems, deformity and fractures.
I specialise in all aspects of spinal surgery with a particular interest in complex adult and paediatric spinal surgery. I advise on non operative and operative management, allowing patients to make fully informed decisions. I use minimally invasive techniques, computer navigated surgery and traditional open techniques.
I completed two prestigious spinal surgery fellowships: The National Spine Fellowship at Leeds Teaching Hospitals as well as a Minimally Invasive and Complex Spine Surgery Fellowship at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore. These fellowships covered the whole spectrum of spinal surgery.
I am passionate about teaching and am a faculty member for the Royal College of Surgeons of England's Advanced Trauma Life Support and Training the Trainers courses.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Michael Mokawem at Spire include:
