About Me

Care Comes First

Welcome to the Orthopaedic Practice of Dr Kobus (JC) van Niekerk.
This practice focusses on improving pain and restoring function of damaged minor and major joints in adult patients.  These joints include the hip, knee and shoulder joints.
Through cutting edge technology combined with years of experience in the field of joint care, I strive to improve the quality life for all of my patients.
