Your medical aid may cover the full Cost of Hip and Knee Replacement


recovered patient cyclingHi Dr Nick Martin.

Guess what I did yesterday ? After 9 months and 10 days since my cycling accident
I finally got to ride my new mtb bike.Its just such an awesome ride.This is hopefully the very first, of many baby steps back into mtb biking. Although I only rode 5 kms it felt so special.

So, from nearly dead, to wearing almost everything red (see pic : my cycling kit is red ). New milestone reached. Thank you for putting me back together again. God has been watching over me Big Time.

Regards & God Bless

Dear Dr Engela and team,

It’s been a year now since my double hip replacement and I just wanted to thank you again for changing my life. I cannot describe to you the quality of my life, from where I was almost a cripple and had to have my son bath and dress me. Not being able to play ball with him, to now be able to walk tall, bathing and dressing myself, playing with my son on the beach, I have a good job with good prospects, I have a life, a future.

I can’t thank you enough, when I had not hope, you came through for me, a man you have never met. Without hesitation you just acted. Thank you for being so kind. There are many times I do not know what I would have done if you had not taken pity on me, you gave up your time and did not ask for anything in return.

I want you to know that I truly appreciated what you and your team have done for me and my family, giving me a second chance in life. You are one of those rare breeds of people who are undeniably self-sacrificing and generous. I can’t thank you enough for all you have done, I am not sure how I can ever repay you, but I’ll start by saying thank you for your help and live my life to its full capacity as I know that is your wish for me.

I am healthy and my whole life is open before me, I now have the ability to dream and know that anything is possible, thanks to you and your wonderful team at Constantiaberg Mediclinic. Thank you for my second chance.

Forever in your debt,

Gavin Rusteberg.

Dear Dr Martin ,
I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with your prognosis today . I always thought of you as a very subdued person but to see your excitement today was quite an enlightening experience , it does make me feel very comfortable that the long term prospects are 1000% better than when we first met a mere 80 days ago.

You can be proud of the work you have done and continue doing , you have a special gift and talent.

Thank you for saving my leg – I am eternally grateful to you.

testimonial from man walking Since the operation I have turned 80 and since the pain associated with the hip has gone I have become aware of all the other aches and pains.

The particular hike amounted to 12km and a climb of 200 metres from the car park to the top of Kleintuin Kop.

I am aware that I have been exceptionally lucky to have had two knees and a hip replaced and to still be as active as I am.

Thank you so much for the care and attention you showed me durng my recent knee surgery, and especially the post operative care.

I would recommend your practice to anyone.

Mrs J Gale, Durbanville

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful work you’ve done.

On December 17th I was walking for 30 minutes my dog without crutches (and without pain) – just four weeks after surgery! Fabulous – many thanks!

UPDATE: I hope you are doing well – as I do. Last week when in JHB I played one hour Tennis and a few days later I was dancing for 1,5 h (Biodanza) and felt fabulous! Still very grateful for your work done.
