The Best Fertility Specialist in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa
Medfem’s Candidate: Dr Nicholas Clark
People looking for a fertility specialist in Sandton often ask us: “Who is the best fertility specialist in South Africa?”.
Before we answer, let’s first define the concepts.
Fertility: the ability to conceive children.
Specialist: a person highly skilled in a particular field; who possess detailed knowledge and/or is involved in the study of this specific field.
In a fertility specialist, then, you are looking for a person who is highly skilled and has detailed knowledge of fertility issues and studies the field of fertility. There are, fortunately, many highly skilled and successful fertility specialists in South Africa, particularly in Sandton and in Johannesburg, the economic hub of the country.
As far as the “best” is concerned, some of the criteria one could consider is whether a fertility specialist is qualified and registered; has extensive experience and an encouraging success rate; is up-to-date with the latest fertility advances and research; has facilities with state-of-the-art equipment and extensive medical support; and takes a supportive, caring approach.
At Medfem Fertility Clinic, we have ample reason to believe that we have four very strong candidates to be the answer to the often-repeated question:
“Who is the best fertility specialist in South Africa?”. They are:

Another important factor to consider when selecting the best among various fertility specialists is their experience.

Dr Clark and the entire team at Medfem Fertility Clinic is very proud of their high rate of pregnancies and live births per transfer, and to have assisted in over 16,000 successful pregnancies!
The best fertility specialist can be expected to have access to world-class facilities, advanced equipment, a range of treatment options and a committed and qualified support team of medical and nursing professionals including embryologists, theatre staff and pharmacists, operating from a clinic registered as an accredited IVF (In-vitro Fertilisation) unit with the Southern African Society for Reproductive Medicine and Gynaecological Endoscopy (SASREG).

In addition, he is supported by a highly qualified and experienced team of nursing specialists, embryologists, lab personnel, pharmacists, theatre and support staff, as well as a clinical phycologist specialising in fertility.
