Meet Dr. Ackermann

Dr. Callie Ackermann is an Orthopaedic Surgeon based at Cape Town’s Netcare Blaauwberg Hospital. He specialises in hip and knee replacement and revision surgery, as well as joint preserving surgery.

Having had both of his hips replaced, he understands the importance of finding the right surgeon and knows what it takes to return to a pain-free, active lifestyle. He ensures that each stage of the treatment process is thoroughly taken care of, with private consultations, allowing for accurate diagnosis, and individually designed treatment plans. He assists patients with a smooth recovery period, and offers continual advice regarding post-surgical care and recovery.
