About Us

Windhoek IVF Clinic started as an idea by Prof Igno Siebert and Dr Riaan van der Colf a few years ago, after recognizing the fact that a service like that does not exist in Namibia. Prof Siebert is part of the well-known AE VITAS clinic in Cape Town. Originally, he started off by visiting Windhoek 4 times a year, consulting and performing advanced laparoscopic surgery. Dr Melanie Smith was involved later.
