Denise Hoogervorst has been involved in the medical industry for over fifteen years. She was the managing director of the fastest growing Orthopedics Company in South Africa and has successfully worked and built relationships with a variety of highly skilled South African surgeons since its inception in 1998. Importantly, she has also been exposed to various levels of healthcare and recognizes the importance of quality healthcare services and post operative care.
Having been a breast cancer patient herself, she understands very well what any patient typically experiences before and after undergoing surgery and treatment.
With her medical knowledge and experience Denise saw an opportunity to offer a high quality medical facilitation service that is based on her industry knowledge and her relationships with some of the best surgeons in each of their respective fields. She wanted to offer a more personal and informative service than what most other surgical facilitators offer and hence Surgical Bliss was born. Her motto for surgical Bliss is Excellence, Ethics and Experience.
"I have been in many operating theatres all over the world and South African Hospitals are on par and in many cases, have even better facilities. I see so much potential in our country and have wanted to share South Africa and the expertise of our specialists and hospitality of our beautiful country with those patients in need of affordable and more accessible healthcare" says Denise.
Denise has recently given Birth to her first long awaited daughter Sophie Leigh after having had IVF at one of the best infertility clinics in South Africa where she refers and works with all her infertility clients.
She has been through fertility treatments and laparoscopies and has a very good understanding of what clients go through when undertaking fertility treatment.
"Understanding our clients and what they experience throughout the treatment is vital to their overall experience and success of their treatment. Surgical Bliss truly does offer "the personal touch.
Denise says , ""As a patient , the clinic was outstanding and the doctors, nurses and admin staff all amazingly friendly , helpful and kind"
In order to position Cape Town as a viable international medical tourism destination, Denise has traveled to International medical travel conferences to establish a competitive and attractive service offering that competes with any other popular medical tourism destinations.
