About Dr Wynand E. van Tonder

Dr. Wynand E. van Tonder is a specialist gynaecologist and obstetrician specialising in reproductive medicine and endoscopic surgery at Sandton Mediclinic, Bryanston, Johannesburg. After training as a primary physician, and feeling a deep need to help childless couples fulfill their dreams and prayers to be parents, Dr. van Tonder pursued further training in all aspects of obstetrical and gynaecological medicine. He knew that his comprehensive knowledge and training as a specialist would help patients seeking his medical advice on their journey to parenthood.

What distinguishes Dr. van Tonder from many medical practitioners is his academic and highly individualised approach to patient care. “Time is of no importance when consulting with me,” he says. Being holistically and academically inclined, Dr. van Tonder is constantly updating his knowledge with the latest training and medicinal education so that every patient and couple receives the best possible care for their unique situations.

Over and above gynaecology and obstetrics, Dr. van Tonder performs all aspects of advanced infertility treatment, with special interest in endoscopic and microscopic training (post-graduate) as well as reproductive medicine.
