Netcare Unitas Hospital is home to a number of ‘super specialists’, many of whom are acknowledged leaders within their respective fields of expertise and having achieved several ground-breaking medical firsts. This includes advanced laparoscopic surgery and endovascular procedures.
The state-of-the-art neuro and vascular unit provides specialised treatments to patients suffering from a range of vascular diseases.
The interventional radiology unit at our hospital is equipped with three-dimensional scanning equipment and operates under leading super-specialists whose experience covers the full spectrum of interventional procedures including endovascular, gynaecological and hepato biliary interventions, as well as biopsies and drainages.
Our hospital has no less than three full-time intensivists caring for patients within our ICUs and those receiving extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) treatment.

The radiotherapy department which serves oncology patients is equipped with rapid arc radiation technology which allows higher doses to be targeted at affected tumour areas while offering better protection to the surrounding normal tissue and critical organs, thereby reducing the side effects of radiation. Stereotactic radiotherapy is offered for both brain tumours and extracranial tumours in, for example, the liver, bladder and lungs.
