"I experienced and learned from both a resource constrained environment, the public health sector, as well as from a world-class medical facility in Wits Donald Gordon Medical Centre (WDGMC) - not many subspecialists have this opportunity" On rotation through the WDGMC's Intensive Care Unit during her specialist medical training, Dr Liezl Brand found the ideal place to sub-specialize in Pulmonology. WDGMC's multidisciplinary environment, where medical professionals work as a team, and the wide range of challenging patient cases referred to the hospital, made her decision an easy one. "I knew that I wanted to be part of this..." Dr. Brand has an established her Pulmonology practice at the hospital and she is also part of the highly skilled medical team managing patients in the Intensive Care and High Care Units. Both of these Units offer the highest standard of care and support to complicated elective surgical and critically ill patients. The ICU has developed into a world-class unit and has become the preferred referral facility for solid organ transplantation, managing complex gastroenterology and hepato-biliary pathology and treating end-stage liver disease. Dr. Brand also provides a pre-operative assessment clinic where patients are screened, counseled and optimized before their elective surgery.
