Dr Keketso Mopeli is a Specialist Paediatric Pulmonologist from Johannesburg who specialises in the holistic care of children with respiratory conditions. She investigates and treats the causes of chronic cough and other chronic lung conditions such as asthma. She does not just treat the child’s medical condition but also supports parents to better manage the condition in their environment. Dr Mopeli studied medicine at The University of Witwatersrand and graduated in 2007. She furthered her studies again through Wits University and graduated in the speciality of paediatrics in 2016. Since then, she has been working at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital in the paediatrics and paediatric pulmonology departments. This is where she gained her vast experience in respiratory conditions. She completed her fellowship and qualified as a paediatric pulmonologist in 2021. She is also a joint lecturer at Wits University and teaches undergraduate medical students as well as paediatric registrars, and paediatric pulmonology fellows. With more than 15 years’ experience she decided to venture into private practice as it allows one-on-one interaction and follow-up of patients. Dr Mopeli diagnoses and treats children with a range of respiratory conditions including asthma, cystic fibrosis and interstitial lung diseases. She is passionate about lung function testing and bronchoscopy as investigations to aid in the diagnosis of respiratory pathologies. She likes to get to know her patients beyond just their medical condition. Being a mother has made her passionate about encountering families during a time of distress, making her patients feel physically better, and having their parents feel heard and supported. How parents feel goes a long way in effectively managing their child’s condition.
