Welcome to Atlantic Bone and Joint Centre. Our practice is based at Netcare Blaauwberg Hospital in Cape Town. Our team of professionals offers a wide variety of services in the field of orthopaedics, with a specialisation in the assessment and management of hip and knee problems, with a particular interest in hip and knee joint replacement procedures.
The practice is headed by Dr Preyen Naidu, who completed his speciality training in orthopaedic surgery in 2013, spending three years thereafter, as a fellow at the Tertiary Academic Hospital in Durban, where he was trained extensively in complex hip and knee surgery. As a specialist orthopaedic surgeon, Dr Naidu is fully committed to assisting patients throughout their recovery journey. This includes all stages, from diagnosis, to treatment recommendations, surgery and post-operative recovery and care. Trust, honesty, and personal attention, are the ideals which Dr Naidu holds dear, and make the foundations upon which our practice, Atlantic Bone and Joint Centre, has been created. Dr Naidu currently performs all elective hip replacement procedures via the posterior approach. Dr Naidu has chosen not to offer the so-called minimally invasive direct anterior surgical approach, as he feels very strongly that the method will not allow him to perform surgery to the high standards to which he works. He is, however, willing and available to discuss all surgery options with each patient, and will address any questions or concerns along the way.
Dr Naidu offers a range of services, some of the most common of which include fracture management, hip replacement, knee replacement, knee arthroscopy, and treatments for sports injuries, orthopaedic trauma and emergencies. We also treat common conditions, such as joint pain, arthritis, and other degenerative diseases.
The Atlantic Bone and Joint Centre is fully equipped and our team has access to world-class technology and facilities. Dr Naidu believes that medical professionals are obligated to remain on the cutting edge of modern medicine, in order to provide their patients with the best care possible. Consequently, continuous medical education, conferences, and workshops, remain a passion. We ensure that each patient feels comfortable at our centre of excellence, and that every need is met both before and after treatment. Dr Naidu’s team of professionals is dedicated to ensuring that the recovery period is as quick and painless as possible.
