Looking for a urologist in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town

I am urgently looking for a flexible urologist in the Northern suburbs (Bellville, Durbanville, Kuils River or Panorama), as my present urologist refuses point blank to do a CYSTSOCOPY under LOCAL anaesthesia. He INSISTS on doing it under GENERAL anaesthesia despite the fact that my medical aid will NOT cover the cost of a general anaesthesia as they know that it is unnecesary. Does someone know of an accommodating urologist in the Northern Suburbs who IS prepared to do a cystoscopy under LOCAL anaesthetic? I suffer from a very severe anxiety disorder and am genuinely completely unable to handle the stress of a GENERAL anaesthetic.

Unfortunately, I am not familiar with doctors and specialists in the Northern suburbs but feel free to contact Dr Martin Bigalgi at Medi-Clinic Vergelegen, Somerset West. You can call 021 - 850 9000 and ask to be transferred to him. He is very kind and will assist you with a second opinion.

Dude, I''ve had 3 cystoscopies and believe me its not something you want done under local anesthesia. Its very painful and they also strech the bladder. Rather get it done under general.
