Patient Care Philosophy

An informed patient is a satisfied patient, and with understanding your condition, the scene is set to ensure the best possible treatment outcome.

Each patient is unique and by considering all lifestyle factors of each individual, formulating a tailor-made treatment plan is possible.

After first getting to know you, I will seek to inform you of all possible treatment options before assisting you in choosing one. I strive to provide honest, informed and unbiased recommendations regarding non-surgical and surgical treatments, their risks and benefits.

Quality of your care is reliant on a multidisciplinary team approach, starting with your family general practitioner and involving physiotherapy, occupational therapy, biokineticists, and if necessary, a psychologist.

Being able to return to your previous level of functioning and independence will be the main aim of care, whether that involves independent mobility around the home or participation in professional sports.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Dr Van Niekerk, Greetings!
Never before I have I experienced such a professional interaction with a surgeon, or any one else in the medical fraternity, as I have with you and your practice. I think the surgery I have just been through may be exceptionally difficult for most, but with your thoroughness, skill and communication I was not uncomfortable at any time, I think you made this as easy as possible on me. I am looking forward to my recovery, I have all confidence that my knee will be in the better shape post recovery than it has been for the last 20 years. For all of that I would like to say a huge and sincere Thank you, I consider myself extremely fortunate to have you as my doctor.
Met hierdie skrywe wil ek net hartlik dankie sê aan jou en Palma.

Eerstens aan Palma wat werklik baie meer moeite gedoen het om hierdie operasie te laat realiseer as wat enige pasiënt kon verwag.

Haar kommunikasie en terugvoer aan my was ook bo verwagting. Sy is baie vriendelik en was altyd gedurende haar oproepe nie net baie professioneel nie maar ook positief. Sy het gesorg dat ek deurentyd die lig in die tonnel kon sien.

Doktor, dieselfde vir jou. Jy het my van die eerste dag af die gevoel gegee dat ek die regte persoon kom sien het vir konsultasie en die operasie.

Ek is baie positief op goeie resultate as wat mens kan verwag op so ń operasie en vir my ouderdom. Ek sal seker maak dat ek die voorskrifte volg soos voorgeskryf deur jou en die fisio terapeute om die mees sukses van die operasie te kan hê.

Vir jou praktyk gee ek 10/10.
