QUALIFICATIONS & FELLOWSHIPS
In 2014 Dr Crispin Thompson took up the position of Consultant Spinal Neurosurgeon at Groote Schuur Hospital with the purpose of providing a comprehensive service within the state sector and furthering the training opportunities within the University of Cape Town Department of Neurosurgery. The need for a Spinal Neurosurgeon at Milnerton Mediclinic resulted in the commencement of a limited private practice being established in late 2015. The growing private practice responsibilities and a growing Groote Schuur team culminated in full-time private practice in 2018.
Dr Crispin Thompson is still employed within the Department of Neurosurgery as a part-time consultant where he provides both operative and clinical support at Groote Schuur Hospital.
A FEW OF OUR TRUSTED REVIEWS
“I am forever grateful to Dr Crispin Thompson for what he, with his medical knowledge, achieved with my back. I have never had any back pain since my accident.”
“Dr Thompson is very approachable and knowledgeable. He is prepared to spend time going into great detail explaining what the problem is, how to fix it and about the surgical procedure. Dr Thompson spent time explaining to my wife how the surgery had gone and putting her mind at rest. She told me later that she had felt greatly comforted.“
“Dr Thompson was my medical support structure through my healing. We forged a bond that I learnt to rely on to retain my positive outlook. I think his transparency with regards to what and why this happened to me, his positive feedback and support played a major part in my recovery. I would never have been able to do this without his support and patience. Thank you Dr Thompson.”
