Meet Dr Nokubonga Patience Makhubo, a compassionate female gynaecologist & obstetrician. Born in Soweto, Dr Bongi Makhubo completed her undergraduate in BSc Physiology at the University of the Witwatersrand in 2002. Straight after graduating she felt compelled to complete a medical degree and did so at the same institution. After obtaining her medical degree in 2005, she went on to working as an intern at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital. One year later, Dr Makhubo found herself in the primary health care sector applying her medical knowledge to aid the South African National Defence Force.

Thereafter she continued to offer her medical services for the duration of 2009 - 2010 by enrolling ARVs and managing HIV patients at the Helen Joseph Hospital through the Right to Care campaign as well as the Edendale Hospital ARV Clinic based in KwaZulu Natal. Following this experience, Dr Makhubo began working as a Medical Officer at Edendale Hospital and presenting at Greys Hospital on a weekly basis.

While initially she struggled to conceive herself, 2 years later she was able to conceive without medical intervention. It is for this reason that Dr Bongi Makhubo felt compelled to pursue a career in gynaecology and obstetrics to aid women in the same position with her compassion, care and empathy. She began her experience in these fields gaining in-depth knowledge and hands-on expertise before attaining her Fellowship of College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (FCOG) as well as her Masters in Medicine (MMed O & G) with the University of Pretoria, of which her dissertation together with her supervisors was published in SAJOG in 2018.

Finally, with her own practice based in Klerksdorp's Life Anncron Hospital, Dr Bongi Makhubo practises as a specialist gynaecologist and obstetrician with a special interest in infertility and maternity. In an empathetic, safe and supportive environment, she strives to provide women’s health care using the latest innovations in diagnosis, treatment and management.
