Expert joint care
The team of specialists at Cape Joint Surgery are happy to consult with you. We pride ourselves in creating bespoke solutions for your orthopaedic problems, based on the understanding that no two patient’s needs are the same.
Our team of orthopaedic specialist hip and knee surgeons are available to assist you. We consult in Constantia, Simon’s Town and Rondebosch. We are pleased to announce that we now perform joint replacement operations at Constantiaberg Mediclinic and Kingsbury Hospital, which significantly increases our medical aid coverage. We also perform surgery at Harbour Bay Hospital.

Joint Replacement Co-ordinator
Grace manages our patients on their surgical journey and she sorts out all the issues which would otherwise be a distraction to what should be the patient’s only concern – recovery from surgery. She always makes time for her patients and no problem is too big or too small.

orthopaedics changes lives
The Joint Care Trust was established in 2017. The trust is actively involved in providing joint replacement surgery at no cost to patients of limited means. This is achieved through charitable donations from implant companies, as well as corporates, such as Polyoak packaging and Mediclinic. Dr Engela and Dr Martin perform around 50 cases a year pro Deo. Orthopaedic registrars from Groote Schuur Hospital assist with these cases, which provides them with arthroplasty exposure and training. Listen to Dr Engela giving an interview about the evolution and successes of the Joint Care Trust on Cape Talk or read about the trust’s achievements.
If you wish to make a booking for someone to be investigated further for hip- or knee arthritis (a prerequisite for waiting list placement), please contact Victoria Hospital on.
The patient is on a medical aid or if they wish to see Dr Martin or Dr Engela for an assessment, please contact the rooms on 021 7970947 (consultation and investigation costs will apply).
