Why Medical Tourism?

South Africa is the obvious choice for those on a budget needing surgical care...

Leading ENT Surgeon

Who wouldn't opt for surgery from one of the leading surgeons in this specialised method?


Dr Martin Young is one of the ‘new breed’ of ENT surgeons, having realised 15 years ago that the niche ‘chisel method’ of treating Surfers Ear was substantially better for both surgeon and patient.


Dr Martin Young is committed to providing the highest quality of service to his patients. He takes the time to get to know his patients, to understand their medical conditions, their needs and guides them through executing the best solution for their healing process.

Affordability

Travelling to Cape Town or Knysna, South Africa, one of the world's most affordable destinations, for your surgery is something that you simply should consider. 
Quality Service, Leading ENT Surgeon, beautiful destinations... AND AFFORDABLE!

World Class Facilities

South African private hospitals and clinics are equipped with the latest technology and staffed by highly trained medical professionals, all geared towards providing patients with the best possible care.

Dr Young operates at the Advanced Harbour Bay Surgical Centre in Cape Town, and at the Life Knysna Private Hospital and the Advanced Knysna Surgical Centre in Knysna.

Quick Healing

The healing process with the Chisel Method for Surfers Ear is much faster than the traditional drill method, has very little postoperative pain or discomfort, and allows you to get back into the water to the sports that you love usually within three weeks.

 Beautiful Destinations

While seeking medical treatment might be the primary reason for visiting Cape Town or Knysna, both regions offer breathtaking natural beauty. From the iconic Table Mountain to pristine beaches and lush vineyards, the Western Cape and Garden Route provide a serene and picturesque backdrop for recovery and relaxation. Medical tourists can combine their treatment journey with moments of rejuvenation amidst the region's stunning landscapes.
