Renal care unit
This unit – one of only two National Renal Care facilities in the North West Province – can accommodate regular patients as well as tourists with chronic kidney failure who are visiting the tourist attractions in the area for haemodialysis. The unit also offers peritoneal dialysis and a Healthy Start educational programme for patients with end-stage renal failure.
Deep brain stimulation centre
Our hospital is one of only a handful in the country where this procedure is performed. This new technology can improve the quality of life for patients suffering from Parkinson's disease. Tiny electrodes are implanted in targeted structures of the brain and connected to a neuro-stimulator, and a wireless programming device is used to adjust the electrical stimulation according to the patient's individual needs.
This clinic focuses on the diagnostic testing of patients suffering from various symptoms like heartburn, difficulty in swallowing, stomach ache, continuous coughing, nausea and vomiting.
Wound care clinic
This clinic has served the needs of our patients and doctors since 2006. The aim of specialised wound care is to ensure that patients benefit from continuity in the observation and treatment of their wounds. This service is available to hospitalised patients and outpatients.
