Urologist and Lecturer, Stellenbosch University

I am a South African Urologist practicing in Cape Town and my private practice is devoted to Urological microsurgery and male infertility.

Infertility microsurgery is a highly specialized field of Urology. I completed my undergraduate MBChB studies at the University of Pretoria and then moved to Cape Town South Africa where I started with training in General Surgery at Groote Schuur Hospital. My ultimate goal was to become a Urologist and I pursued this at the University of Stellenbosch and Tygerberg Hospital. Here I received my postgraduate MMed Urology specialization degree cum laude and received the Rector’s Medal for the best postgraduate student in the Faculty of Health Sciences. I was also admitted to the Fellowship of the College of Urologists of South Africa and received the medal for the best candidate in their final exam (FC Urol SA).

I am currently a certified Urologist, full member of the South African Urology Association and hold specialist registration with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA).

I received the Golden Cystoscope prize funded by Karl Storz Endoscopes and awarded for postgraduate academic achievements by a young urologist (under 45 years of age) and I have received several previous awards and prizes, including the Bard, the Van Blerk and the Bunny Angorn prizes for the best congress papers presented by a registrar, the Goldschmidt Medal for the best candidate in the College of Urologists examination, the Discovery Foundation award and the University of Stellenbosch Rector’s award for the best MMed student. I am the author or co-author of 12 published papers and have presented 31 papers at congresses.
