Specialist Obstetrician & Gynaecologist

I am an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist in private practice based in Sandton at Mediclinic Morningside.

Having qualified as a general practitioner through the University of the Free State, I worked in the Eastern Cape’s public sector as a young doctor. On returning home to Johannesburg, I spent several years gaining my specialist degree in Obstetrics and Gynaecology through the Colleges of Medicine in South Africa.

My career is my passion in life. I find that a holistic approach to my patient, considering all aspects of her life before advising, treating and managing her health, achieves superior outcomes. I have a distinct interest in the reproductive years of a woman’s life on her journey as she builds her family. I believe that my fresh and dynamic approach to my patients through my energetic and personable care is the cornerstone to quality patient care.

In the realm of cervical cancer, I am passionate about the difference that could be made in Johannesburg’s underprivileged communities, especially where limited access impairs prevention and treatment of this disease.

I believe that “Tomorrow will be defined by our children. Through the fostering love of a healthy mother, her children will flourish, crafting a better and brighter future for our nation.”

Areas of Focus


The field of obstetrics concentrates on pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period.

My experience includes the management of all pregnancies, ranging from low to high risk. I offer both vaginal and Caesarean section deliveries as methods of childbirth. The choice between these two is individualised to best suit each patient’s needs.


My experience in the field of gynaecology concentrates on the management of all disorders associated with women’s health, focusing mostly on disorders of the genito-urinary tract and breasts during all phases of a woman’s lifetime, ranging from her pre-pubertal to her post-menopausal years.
