Medical Services

State of the Art


At the Bone & Breast Care Centre we appreciate that suspecting you may have cancer is very worrying. And as such we make an effort to screen you as soon as possible to start the diagnostic journey.

Our Centre

The Bone & Breast Care Centre was established by Dr Louella Ritz in 1997. We offer up to date, innovative, state-of-the-art screening services. We pride ourselves in caring for and treating each patient professionally. Most of our all-female staff have been with the practice for more than a decade and so we all share the same passion for providing patients with top quality healthcare.

We are also a steering member of the 

Morningside Breast Care

working group and as such ensure a multi-disciplinary, informed approach for each patient's treatment protocol.


We welcome 3 employees: Natasja van der Linde, Thabitha Moyo & Tashna Steenkamp and we say farewell to Yvonne Lougin and Fernanda Santos.

 This Practice is POPI compliant.
