Dr Rossouw’s 39 year career in the medical industry includes both public and private sector experience. He qualified at the University of Pretoria in 1979 (MBChB); spent 4 years in the surgical department in Polokwane after which he spent 3 years as General Practitioner in Amersfoort (a small
agricultural town in Mpumalanga).
Dr Rossouw’s interest in ear nose and throat surgery (ENT) was catalyzed by his father – Dr J.T Rossouw (also an ENT), who completed his studies at Edinburgh University and was one of the first surgeons to conduct a stapedectomy (hearing repair surgery) in South Africa.
Dr Rossouw specialized in ENT surgery at the University of Pretoria, attended numerous local and international conferences, courses and workshops. The Garden City Clinic has been “home” to Dr Rossouw for the past 29 years, where he operates with his own team of dedicated scrub sisters;
floor nurses and anaethatists (Dr A. Greeff and Dr P. de Wet). Dr Rossouw and his team have vast experience and special interest in hearing related problems and the surgical correction thereof, including cochlear implant surgery (CI).
Dr Rossouw maintains “a surgeon is only as good as his support team”
