– Dr Cameron McIntosh.
I began my training at the University of Stellenbosch, where I received my MBChB (Medical degree) in 2005. I then went on to obtain my FCORL (SA) and MMed (UFS) in 2015, specialising in ENT (Ear, nose and throat surgery).
In 2017, I founded the Society of Rhinoplasty Surgeons of South Africa (SORSSA). The purpose of the society is to offer an educational platform for Rhinoplasty specialists to constantly improve rhinoplasty surgery in South Africa.
In 2019 I passed the IBCFPRS exams in Washington DC making me the first African trained specialist to become a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon.
I am also a member of The Rhinoplasty Society of Europe and The European Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery.
For the last four years, I have been running my own private practice, Bay ENT, in Port Elizabeth. I have also travelled extensively to Europe and the USA, where I have been fortunate to spend time with renowned surgeons, including – Spencer Cochran, Andrew Jacono, Rod Rohrich, Steve Byrd, Russel Kridel, Fazil Apaydin, Daniel Simmen and Daniel A ‘Wegen.
While specialising in ENT at the University of the Free State, I rigorously studied the anatomy of the alar cartilage. The study proved to be the biggest of its kind in more than 30 years, resulting in me presenting my research nationally and internationally.
Parallel to my medical career, I’ve had an international sporting career, where I represented South Africa for 12 seasons in the Slalom Canoe/Kayak circuit. After representing South Africa in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, I retired from competitive paddling. However, this has not stopped me from enjoying an array of sports. I am fluent in English, Afrikaans and Zulu, and live with my wife and three children in Port Elizabeth, where we enjoy the wonderful outdoor lifestyle that South Africa has to offer.

My entire experience with Dr McIntosh's practice was very good. It was easy to get an appointment for a consultation.
From the moment I walked in to
the rooms I was treated very professionally.
The doctor was on time for the appointment and was extremely pleasant and made me feel relaxed.
He explained which procedure would fix my nasal problem after doing some tests. Photographs were taken by
a lovely young lady.
During my second consultation we made arrangements for the operation to be done. The staff were extremely helpful
and patient in trying to contact my hospital plan company.
Dr McIntosh was there to greet me in the hospital ward before my operation and was very comforting when I was in
the theatre as I was very nervous. In my follow up appointment, there was an issue which the doctor handled very
patiently and without any reproach.
I have had one more follow up appointment since then and it went well. The doctor gave me photos of the entire
operation, taken in theatre, which I found fascinating.
I have to see the doctor again in August, and I believe more photos will be taken. I was treated with dignity and respect

When my little boy came in for tonsils, Dr McIntosh noticed how skew my nose was. He asked me if I have any
