In its continuous pursuit of providing top-quality medical care to its patients, Mediclinic Newcastle proudly welcomes Dr Yusuf Ameer, a highly skilled urologist, to its team.
Dr Ameer, who has taken over the practice of Dr Mahesh Dhanjee, brings extensive medical expertise to his field of specialisation within the medical sector.
“I did my Undergraduate training at the University of Cape Town (UCT) in 2001 with distinctions in pre-clinicals. I then obtained a diploma in obstetrics in 2003, followed by my Post Graduate training at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) in 2010,” explained Dr Ameer.
With experience as the Head of the Unit of Urology at Albert Luthuli Hospital in 2012, and certification in robotic surgery in March 2023, Dr Ameer has also practiced at private practices in Life Westville and Lenmed Shifa Hospitals from 2012 to 2023.
Reflecting on his medical journey and choosing urology as his career, Dr Ameer expressed his passion for the specialty. “I knew I wanted to do a specialty and I decided to apply around, and I was accepted into urology. I am glad I was,” said Dr Ameer.
The doctor further highlighted that urology allows him to make a significant impact on his patients’ lives through personal engagement and the implementation of surgical and medical interventions. He also noted that urology is at the forefront of minimally invasive surgery, which is not always common in other forms of surgery.
Moreover, Dr Ameer emphasised that urology enables him to help his patients in ways that result in immediate improvements in their quality of life.
Joining the Mediclinic Newcastle team was not an easy decision for Dr Ameer, as he had been running his practice in Durban for 12 years. However, after considering his father’s advice, who is a long-time Newcastle resident and the increasingly busyness of city life, Dr Ameer saw the opportunity to return to Newcastle as part of God’s plan.
Concluding, Dr Ameer is eager to dedicate his expertise to the community and work alongside the team at Mediclinic Newcastle. He assured the community that he would provide excellent service, building on the legacy of Dr Dhanjee and instilling confidence in his skills.
As Mediclinic Newcastle warmly welcomes Dr Yusuf Ameer to their team, the community is encouraged to greet him with open arms.
