Fantastic. Explains everything and answered all my questions
Mr Zaw corrected and repaired my ankle with extreme care and expertise. He always explained clearly, in a very friendly manner, what he would have to do to achieve, what I consider to be, a magnificent result.
Mr Zaw was the most incredible person to deal with. He explained everything in such detail and with such enthusiasm and knowledge, I can only say that he made me feel so safe and lucky to be in his care. If I could give him a million stars I would. Three months after the enormous surgery I had under his care and I’m ready to take the world on again. He has literally given me my life back again. What a man. What a surgeon. What an experience. I feel very lucky and blessed. Thank you Mr Zaw. Plus his secretary Angie was extremely brilliant as well. A great team. Thank you.
Following my unsuccessful hammer toe surgery previously done by another surgeon, Mr Zaw did not have an easy job to correct all the mistakes that has accrued in my initial (first) surgery. I needed two more surgeries, but Mr Zaw has done a brilliant job! He is extremely knowledgeable, and prior to my surgery he explained to me the whole procedure, risks and possible complications, and after treatment. Mr Zaw is also very friendly and always put me at ease. I would highly recommend Mr Zaw, you can turn to him with absolute confidence! Mr Zaw, thank you for everything you've done for me, my feet are like new again!
From my first consultation right through to after surgery care, Mr Zaw explained everything in detail regarding Morten's Neuroma surgery. His manner was exemplary taking time to talk through the processes. I had an excision on my left foot 3/4 webspace neuromato to remove the immense pain of Mortons neuroma in my left foot. It was extremely successful with full pain relief and recovery without complications, Mr Zaw is simply the very best orthopaedic surgeon out there, I can now walk pain free on my feet and It is only week 3 after my surgery. Thank you so very much!

I highly raccomend Mr.Zaw I had 2 procedures done both very successfully. I've had no issues and have healed very well. He explains everything so I was always well informed and great bedside manner. I felt at ease with him and had total confidence.
I recently had foot surgery under the care of Mr Zaw. At all times he was professional, caring, and meticulous in his explanations of the procedure. He inspired confidence and I knew exactly what to expect at every stage, pre and post-operatively. He had time to listen to, and answer my many queries. Fortunately, I experienced a completely pain-free recovery, mainly I am sure due to his skill, care, and technique. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Mr Zaw.
I found Mr. Zaw's treatment exceptionally beneficial. He gave me clear, precise explanations of the likely outcomes of all stages of my treatment. I wish I had met him years earlier, and cannot praise him more highly. I am delighted to be able to walk pain free for the first time for well over a decade.
Htwe explained my situation very well, and felt I had a clear plan to resolve my problems.
