Mr Michael Mokawem is a consultant spinal surgeon, specialising in all aspects of spinal surgery with a particular interest in paediatric and adult spine deformities. His NHS base is at the internationally renowned Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust, rated within the top 10 specialist hospitals globally. Mr Mokawem's private practice matches his NHS practice. He advises on non-operative and operative management and supports patients in making fully informed decisions. He uses minimally invasive techniques, computer navigated surgery, robotic surgery and traditional open techniques as appropriate.

Mr Mokawem completed the prestigious National Spine Surgery Fellowship at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals in 2018. This is a combined neurosurgical and orthopaedic spine surgery fellowship which covers the breadth of spinal surgery and the full spectrum of spinal conditions in both paediatric and adult patients. Additionally, he completed a complex spine surgery fellowship at the internationally recognised Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in 2017. Mr Mokawem has presented at national and international spine surgery conferences and has published in peer-reviewed journals.
