Dr MR Purdy

Dr Purdy completed his undergraduate medical training at the University of Cape Town in 2002 and went on to specialise in Urology at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits). He was admitted as a Fellow of the College of Urologists of South Africa in 2012.

During his specialist training at Wits he also completed his Masters Degree with a research report entitled: The Predictive Value of the NMP22 BladderChek test for bladder carcinoma in patients presenting with haematuria to a South African Tertiary Care Centre.

In 2020, after 6 years based at Mediclinic Emfuleni, Dr Purdy moved the practice base to Midvaal Private Hospital in Three Rivers. Dr Purdy also sees patients at his sessional rooms in the Doctor's Block at Cormed Clinic in Vanderbijlpark.
