WHO WE ARE

About Vita Oncology

Who We Are

Our practice was founded by Dr. Alma van der Merwe, a medical oncologist in 1991. Chemotherapy was the only treatment modality, but radiotherapy was also established when Dr. Anna-Marie Visser joined the practice in 2000. Since then, the practice has expanded when Dr.George Loots (2007), Dr.Ilze Fourie (2018), and Dr.Louis Cordier (2021), joined.

Our Practices

We have practices at two sites: 17 Solway Street in Bellville and the Cape Gate Oncology Centre in Kraaifontein. Although we are situated in these locations, we also make use of radiotherapy units at Panorama, Rondebosch, and N1 City. We can therefore offer all types of external radiotherapy techniques, as well as brachytherapy.

What We Believe

As a practice we believe in a multidisciplinary approach. Patient cases are therefore often presented at a combined clinic where oncologists, surgeons,gynaecologists, urologists, radiologists, pathologists and social workers are involved. By involving these care partners, the best course of action for each patient can be decided upon.
