Welcome

The name of the website says it all! Our practice stretches from Plettenberg bay to Oudtshoorn where we provide the spectrum of specialist feminine health care services. Consultations are available on Tuesdays in Plettenberg Bay, Thursdays in Knysna and Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in Oudtshoorn. Our motto is to help when and where help is needed and we strive to assist with appointments at the shortest possible interval.

The practice still provides obstetric services at Knysna, George and Oudtshoorn. We will continue to strive for affordable private obstetric care in an extremely restrictive insurance environment. Please see the section on child birth for more information.

The Practice works in close association with the various midwife-lead initiatives in the garden route, including baby steps in Oudtshoorn and Eden Natural Birth in Knysna and Plett. 4D art scanning of your baby is available through baby steps in Oudtshoorn.

Surgical procedures are conducted in Knysna on a Tuesday morning and Oudtshoorn on a Wednesday morning. Certain specialised techniques are conducted at Geneva Mediclinic on a Friday. Access to provincial facilities is possible, but restricted by their protocols and schedules. The spectrum of surgery, is discussed on the link provided.

The practice runs a Bone Densitometry unit in Knysna with osteoporosis being a special interest. Our resident radiographer, Brigid, has many years of experience in the the condition and it's screening and is alway happy to offer advice on the technique and it's appropriate use.

Functional and integrated medicine is practiced wherever possible in synergy with related practices and practitioners. Management of the menopause and its related conditions is a specialty of the practice.

We are an established patient friendly practice with a long history of service in the Garden Route. Our friendly staff will ensure a pleasant experience, whether it be for appropriate routine screening or for an acute or chronic ailment.

Menopause

Osteoporosis

Today we will spend a little time on an oft forgotten, largely neglected,yet critical bodily organ. It is so critical to our humanity, in fact, that in it's absence we would be blobs.... jelly fish, if you like.Read More...

Surgery

This operation is indicated when the vaginal route is not deemed suitable. This may be due to previous surgery, suspected additional pathology or sheer size.Read More...

Contraception

I suppose it's really just a matter of choice. It's a wonderful thing, if you think about it, the ability to chose. Particularly a choice as profound and as far reaching as creating life. Not that the creation is such a big deal. Read More...

Child Birth

The ultimate experience of womanhood and the aspiration of the majority of couples attending the practice. Pregnancy and birth are physiological conditions Read More...
