About Dr. Ackermann

Dr. Callie Ackermann is an Orthopaedic Surgeon based at Cape Town’s Netcare Blaauwberg Hospital. He specialises in hip and knee replacement and revision surgery, as well as joint preserving surgery.

Having had both of his hips replaced, he understands the importance of finding the right surgeon and knows what it takes to return to a pain-free, active lifestyle. He ensures that each stage of the treatment process is thoroughly taken care of, with private consultations, allowing for accurate diagnosis, and individually designed treatment plans. He assists patients with a smooth recovery period, and offers continual advice regarding post-surgical care and recovery.

FAQs

Dr. Ackermann is contracted in, which means that medical aid rates will be charged for each visit.

We do accept VISA payments for consultation fees. Alternatively, the fees can be charged to your medical aid scheme.

For optimal recovery, it is important to remain on crutches for 6-8 weeks post surgery – this timeline will be determined by Dr. Ackermann and a physiotherapist on a case-by-case basis. Even if there is no pain after surgery, the bone and soft tissue needs time to heal.

Most patients will remain in hospital for anything from 1 to 3 days. This varies on a case-by-case basis and will be determined by Dr. Ackermann.
