Patient testimonials

“Katherine helped me when I was involved in a bad climbing accident and suffered poly trauma and needed surgery to stabilise my ankle. She was brilliant and so confident but also caring and willing to engage and explain. I recommend her highly to anyone seeking an excellent surgeon. On follow up after returning to Johannesburg she has been willing to assist with further advice and my follow up surgeon is very impressed with the outcome. Thank you!”

“Dr Smit and Staff, I  would like to say Thank you to all of you during and after my ankle injury. It was a tough and distressing time for me and your kindness will always stay with me. Maya Angelou said ‘I’ve learnt that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’ Thank you always.”
