Dear Dr Joubert,
Thank you so much for your dedication and compassion that you bestowed on me during my left hip replacement (AMIS) in August 2023. I had my first experience with you in 2015 when you did my right hip (AMIS), so I knew what I was in for, and I mean this in a very positive way.
The second time around, the healing process was even shorter than the first time. You are an AMAZING person, blessed with the most exceptional skills. Not only surgically, but your people’s skills too are extraordinary. You make everyone feel as if he/she is your only patient and you communicate with them in a manner that puts them so at ease. Reassuring! You diagnose them effectively and recommend the best source of treatment, without putting any pressure on them. Patients feel how passionate you are about your profession and that you really care about them. They trust you completely… Being an orthopaedic surgeon is not just a profession for you; it is a calling! The quality of care that I received from you on both occasions, was incredible. I can also add that all fellow patients I met in 2015, and in August 2023, spoke highly of you.
What I should also mention is that your interaction with the nursing staff and your office staff is remarkable. One big happy family!
THANK YOU, DR JAN! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
To MEDICLINIC WINELANDS in STELLENBOSCH I would like to say: My stay with you in August felt like a mini holiday at a 5 star hotel. It was wonderful! The staff was fantastic; the delicious meals, the choice therein and presentation thereof, was first class, and the overall hygienic standards you set are very high. Well done!
TO PATIENTS: I recommend anyone in need of an orthopaedic surgeon to contact Dr Jan Joubert. You’ll be in the best hands you can ever be. After a hip or knee replacement, you’ll be dancing on the table in no time. If that is not what your aim is, then soon, you will be walking, cycling, swimming, back at the gym, of whatever it is you like to do physically. WITHOUT PAIN. A new lease on life.
A few words of advice though: Don’t underestimate the importance of doing the recommend daily physio exercises. Go for regular walks. Yes, even when still on crutches. If you have one, or can borrow one, cycle on a stationary bike. Listen to your body! Exercise patience, so be a patient patient. After three months, or even sooner, you will have forgotten you ever had the operation.
