Since I am older than both the other two editors / authors, I sincerely hope that they will carry the book forward in the future, They are both excellent writers and form an outstanding team, the likes of which will be very difficult to get together again, if not impossible. The outstanding characteristic of this three author/editor team is that we complement one another, like the pieces of a jig-saw puzzle.

Executive Position: Leader; Listed in company profile as executive. | Obstetrics & Gynaecology | Pelonomi Hospital. Listed in Leadership Section on Company's profile page.
Bloemfontein, South Africa | 1999 - 2006

Medical, Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals

Director and Clinical Head.
Duties:
Administering Department in the Largest hospital in the Free State, South Africa.
Teaching registrars operations.
Teaching undergraduate medical students.
Redesigned the labour ward in conjunction with the architect, which was (when I left it) the most beautiful labour ward that I have seen anywhere in the world. I e g did away with the old style state hospital bunks, and had the chairs arranged in circles around tables, fixed to the ground. The caesarean section theatre is right next to the labour wards, and the scrub rooms right next to that. I also redesigned the gynaecology ward and even had one room tiled, to be used as a urogynaecology examination room (to easily clean the leaking urine from the floor). I also bought, with the very little money we had available, the first fetal heart monitor in South Africa, that could beautifully pick up both hearts of twin babies, and that very accurately. I put so much effort and time into this labour ward, that it is my greatest wish that my name 'JT Nel' would forever be linked to it, in memory of the African black people who suffered so much in this former neglected 'apartheid' hospital - yes, when I came to the Free State I heard every single Prime Minister from Winkie Direko onwards speak (complain) about how they suffered in this hospital. Fortunately things have been rectified to a large extent - I hope conditions are still as I left them !
That is also why one of my favourite books is - "We must talk ! - Professor Jonathan Jansen."
Other responsibilities in Pelonomi - Hospital are doing extremely difficult operations, since junior registrars work there, patients frequently have poor transport and arrive at the hospital very late after having already suffered massive haemorrhage.
Responsible for drawing up a budget each year.
Responsible for compiling a business plan.

PRE-OPERATIVE, MEDICAL, SURGICAL AND POST-OPERATIVE TREATMENT OF GYNAECOLOGICAL ONCOLOGY PATIENTS. SAW TO IT THAT PATEINTS GOT ADEQUATE PAIN RELIEF. MADE SURE THAT THE BATHROOMS AND TOWELS WERE CLEAN. ENSURED THAT PATIENTS FOOD WAS ATTRACTIVE AND EDIBLE, AND THAT THEY RECEIVED KNIVES, FORKS AND SPOONS AND NOT ONLY SPOONS (WHICH WAS THE CASE WHEN I FIRST STARTED WORKING IN PELONOMI). A PRIVATE FIRM PROVIDED THE FOOD AND EATING UTENSILS - THEY WERE NOT UP TO STANDARD, AND AFTER TWO WARNINGS THEY WERE DISCHARGED. I DID
REGULAR WARD ROUNDS -ALSO AT NIGHT, AT UNEXPECTED TIMES, TO ENSURE THAT PATIENTS WERE AT ALL TIMES HUMANELY TREATED.

HOW TO STOP MAJOR PELVIC BLEEDING BY LIGATING THE ANTERIOR DIVISION OF THE ANTERIOR INTERNAL ILIACA ARTERIES ON BOTH SIDES. IN FACT VERY FEW GYNAECOLOGISTS CAN DO THIS LIFE-SAVING OPERATION. MANY GYNAECOLOGISTS PHONED ME, EVEN ON SATURDAY NIGHTS, TO THANK ME FOR TEACHING THEM THIS LIFE-SAVING OPERATION, SINCE THEY HAD JUST SAVED A WOMAN"S LIFE BY USING THIS PROCEDURE.

I ALSO INIATED A WEEKLY WARD ROUND WITH THE FINAL YEAR MEDICAL STUDENTS, SPECIFICALLY TO PREPARE THEM FOR THEIR FINAL EXAMINATIONS. IN FACT THESE TEACHING ROUNDS FORMED THE BASIS OF THE BOOK THAT I LATER WROTE, AND AM NOW WRITING AGAIN, FORTUNATELY THIS TIME WITH TWO VERY CAPABLE CO-EDITORS / AUTHORS OF EQUAL STATUS.
MY OTHER DUTIES INCLUDED A WEEKLY STAGING CERVICAL CARCINOMA STAGING ROUND, A WEEKLY CYSTOSCOPY STAGING THEATRE LIST, TWO THEATRE LISTS PER WEEK, IN ADDITION TO MY MICROSURGERY LIST AT UNIVERSITAS HOSPITAL.

Regularly assisted my father, dr Rhoderic WA Nel, M.B. Ch.B. (UCT), L.M. (Dublin), D. Obst. R.C.O.G., F.R.C.O.G. (London), with gynaecological and obstetrical operations during 1979 - 1981, and sometimes between 1982 and 1984 (when I was already I qualified Obstetrician and Gynaecologist). This proved to be an extremely valuable experience, since at that stage he had been a practising obstetrician/gynaecologist for more than twenty years and had developed a special expertise in gynaecological surgery, especially vaginal surgery. This experience undoubtedly gave me a great advantage over my peers. Fortunately I could and can still convey this knowledge to my registrars and students.

Microsurgery via mini-laparotomy is also preceded by diagnostic laparoscopy & hysteroscopy (not at the same time as microsurgery, or the operative time becomes too long, with consequent less better results).

HEIL DIE LESER
Dit is vir die ondergenoemde 'n besondere voorreg om te kan getuig dat hy
DR JOHAN THERON NEL
baie goed ken waar hy in die Departement Obstetrie en Ginekologie van die Geneeskundige Fakulteit UOVS werksaam was as Mede Professor en Eerste Spesialis die afgelope paar jaar.

Ek meld graag dat ek Dr Nel leer ken het as 'n besondere aangename persoon, en 'n geneesheer met 'n baie hoë werksvermoë en verantwoordelikheidssin. Dr Nel, soos u bewus is, het gekwalifiseer FRCS (Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh) 1985, dit wil së 'n Algemene Chirurgie kwalifikasie en daarby dan sy verdere kwalifikasies in Obstetrie en Ginekologie. Dit het tot gevolg gehad dat ons 'n besondere aanvoeling uit die Departement Chirurgie met Dr Nel gehad het deur die jare van baie aangename samewerking. Dr Nel het 'n besondere vermoë om baie goed met mense en studente om te gaan en ook sy kollegas in eie Departement en ander Departemente in die Fakulteit. Hy het altyd 'n baie positiewe werksgeoriënteerde benadering tot probleme gehad en was steeds baie gewillig om behulpsaam te wees met tydskrif artikels, eweknie evaluasies, ens.

Ek kan ook daarby getuig dat hy baie na-uurse werk in die skryf van artikels, hoofstukke in boeke en twee boeke self, gesteek het en dat dit gepaard gegaan het met 'n hoë mate van opoffering ten opsigte van sy eie vryetydsbesteding en sy gesinsaktiwiteite. Hiervoor het almal in die Fakulteit vir hom die hoogste agting gehad.

Sy Hoofskap van Mikrochirurgie in die Reproduktiewesorg Eenheid, asook Hoofskap van die Uroginekologie Eenheid van die Departement Verloskunde by die Universiteit van die Oranje Vrystaat het aan hom 'n besondere posisie gegee ten opsigte van gespesialiseerde werk in die Fakulteit Geneeskunde.

Sy Mede Professoraat wat hy verwerf het op 1 Januarie 1993 het hom, na my mening, absoluut toegekom na aanleiding van sy hoë insette in hierdie Fakulteit en aan die Universiteit van die OVS. Dr Nel was steeds baie aktief gemoeid met kursusse ten opsigte van navorsingsmetodiek en reproduktiewechirurgie asook simposia oor Multi-sentriese studies in Ginekologiese Onkologie en ook navorsingsmetodiek aan die UOVS. Op hierdie wyse het hy die beeld en die positiewe kennis ten opsigte van die Departement Obstetrie en Ginekologie asook die Fakulteit Geneeskunde van die UOVS grotendeels bevoordeel en uitgebou. Hy is 'n lid van tientalle nasionale en internasionale vakkundige organisasies asook van Universiteitskomitees ensovoorts.

In opsomming kan ek met groot vrymoedigheid getuig dat ons in Dr JT Nel 'n voortreflike geneesheer, akademikus en 'n persoon van hoë integriteit het wat aan hierdie Universiteit in die Fakulteit Geneeskunde diep spore getrap het.

Met groot vrymoedigheid sal ek hom wil aanbeveel vir enige pos waartoe hy die nodige kwalifikasies sou besit en ek voel verseker dat hy die vermoë besit om daarvan 'n besondere sukses te maak.

Foreword written by Professor Frans Geldenhuys for "Kernverloskunde & - Ginekologie met Eksamenwenke vir M.B.Ch.B ."

"Foreword: Kernverloskunde & -Ginekologie (Ed./Author): Johan theron Nel
Dit is verfrissend en 'n welkome gebeurtenis om 'n mediese handleiding soos hierdie teë te kom waar die outeur met 'n oorspronklike benadering en skryfstyl daarin slaag om 'n verbasend volledige, lesersvriendelike uiteenstteing van die teoretiese en feitelike agtergrond sowel as die praktiese aspekte van die vakgebied weer te gee.
Die boek verskaf 'n omvangryke hoeveelheid inligting wat moontlik gemaak word deur 'n unieke aanbieding van materiaal tesame met bykans vier honderd illustrasies wat leesbaarheid, assimilasie en geheueretensie vergemaklik.
Hierdie boek wat primêr op die mediese student en die M.B.Ch.B. - eksamen gerig is, kan as volwaardige handboek gebruik word en die skrywer se probleemgerigte benadering sal bydra tot die opleiding van goeie geneeshere. Die tabelle en opsommings is ideaal vir hersiening, terwyl die eksamenwenke selftoetsing van kennis toelaat en selfvertroue by die eksamen sal bevorder.
Daar word voorspel dat hierdie handboek nuttig gebruik sal word deur die geneesheer in praktyk om sy kennis te verfris, en ook die nagraadse student wat vir eksamens voorberei. So ook sal verpleegkundiges en lede van aanvullende gesondheidsberoepe dit waardevol vind tydens hul opleiding en daarna.

Foreword written in 1995 1st ed, 1996 Reprint, 1998 Revised Reprint and 2002 Reprint of Core Obstetrics & Gynaecolgy, Ed Nel, JT

"Medical students who prepare for an examination require a textbook to be easily understandible, systematic and corelike. Prof Nel's book fulfills these requirements in an outstanding way.
The book has been written in particular for undergraduate students. The manuscript was at my disposal for the M.Med.(O.& G.) examinations and the Southern African application and good South African references in particular were very valuable. Certain interesting facts I could find in no other handbook.
This book should gain favourable acceptance by Southern African medical students and practitioners.

Foreword written in 1995 1st ed, 1996 Reprint, 1998 Revised Reprint and 2002 Reprint of Core Obstetrics & Gynaecology Ed Nel, JT

"The explosion in medical knowledge in the past two decades has been considerable. This is no less true in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology where the application of new technology is making a tremendous impact on the practice of the speciality. It is imperative that the concepts considered essential for the student to grasp should be streamlined and presented in a clear and concise manner. New technology must be incorporated in proper perspective for it to have relevance in the health care delivery systems, especially to underdeveloped communities.
Professor JT Nel has succeded in fulfilling this daunting task in this book.
May I use this opportunity to congratulate Professor JT Nel on his effort in compiling this book and to recommend it to every student and clinician practising or teaching obstetrics and gynaecology in the Republic of South Africa and the surrounding countries.

Preface written in 1995 1st ed, 1996 Reprint, 1998 Revised Reprint and 2002 Reprint of Core Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Ed Nel, JT

"An excellent book both for undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as general practitioners ! In one book both Obstetrics & Gynaecology are dealt with so comprehensively that even the undergraduate distinction student will need to know nothing more. Students will find the examples of questions most valuable, and having tested themselves on the basis of the questions asked at the end of each chapter, can approach any evaluation in the subject field with confidence. Many of the problems stated here are exactly the problems grappled with in practice, and this is what makes this book unique, because the approach to the problem as well as the exact way in which to deal with it, are explained fully. Medical practitioners will find the book most useful. Thus, this is the one book the student can use as reference for the rest of his/her medical career.

"Professor Nel has succeeded in conveying his analytical logical approach to daily obstetrical and gynaecological problems in this wonderful book. Born out of years of research, study and teaching, it is compiled in an easily readable manner with diagnostic-therapeutic plans, treatment regimens and excellent advice. This book is a significant contribution to the medical profession and it will be of great value to students, postgraduates and general practitioners alike, not only for its academic and reference value but also the sheer beauty of its medical logic. I would like to make use of this opportunity to salute Prof JT Nel, as an academic mentor and friend, and trust that this book will contribute to the respect and recognition he already enjoys and deserves.

Baie dankie vir die hulp en leiding wat u aan my gebied het tydens my voorbereiding vir die afgelope Kollege eksamen. U het eerstens vir my die regte pad aangedui wat ek moet loop. Verder het u my altyd van waardevolle raad bedien wat regtig die verskil in die eksamen gemaak het.

I would like to thank you for your generosity in presenting me with a copy of your textbook.
However, I would more particularly like to congratulate you on an excellent production, and particularly on your personal effort in completing this mammoth task.
I will certainly be recommending the library to purchase several copies, and we will also recommend this book to our students. I have asked Dr Kent who runs our undergraduate programme, to review the book for us and to make it known amongst the 4th and Final Year students.
Thank you again and congratulations on an excellent production and a great contribution from South Africa.
With kindest regards,
Yours sincerely,
Boet

Die boek is goed versorg en lyk aantreklik. Dit lees maklik en 'n mens volg die gedagtegang. Die eksamen boek is 'n terminale byvoeging tot standaard tekste. My opinie is dat dit 'n baie goeie aanvullende boek tot die voorgraadse literatuur sal wees en ek sal dit aan ons studente bekendstel.

Beste Johan,
Baie dankie vir jou boek Kernverloskunde & -Ginekologie, wat jou vader onlangs hier by my afgelewer het.
Ek wil jou van harte geluk wens met hierdie boek. Dit is ongetwyfeld die beste boek van sy aard wat ek nog in Engels sowel as Afrikaans, ter plaatse of enige plek in die wereld gelees het.
Hierdie boek is van onskatbare waarde, nie alleen vir die mediese student nie, maar ook vir die kliniese assistent, sowel as die praktiserende ginekoloog.
Baie dankie ook vir die vriendelike woorde wat jy voorin geskryf het. Ek waardeer dit opreg.
Hierdie boek getuig van jou deursettingsvermoe en deeglikheid wat altyd twee van jou mooiste karaktertrekke was.
Seenwense en sukses op die pad vorentoe word jou toegewens.

Recommendation received on Linkedin-written by Professor Dr Rita Niemann, Higher Education, University of the Free State.

"Johan Nel is a dedicated, focussed and hard working person with exceptional talents in his field of specialisation. His ability to critically question traditional practices in gynaecology, enabled him to generate new knowledge, which benefits both practical and theoretical concerns. He is also viewed by his students as an outstanding mentor and role model. As person, he is not only a bearer of a wealth of knowledge that transcends disciplinary boundaries, but has also distinguished himself as a talented sportsman. He forms part of the small cohort of exceptional intellectuals and top performers in the world. July 15, 2013." - 2013

Letter from a patient, who came to me from Namibia.

"Liewe Prof Nel,
Ek glo my ontmoeting met u in Bloemfontein was so bestem, en ek glo dit omdat ek glo 'n hoër Hand lei my. Ek het weer selfvertroue in myself as 'n vrou en dat ek gaan regkom; ek het dit baie waardeer dat u soveel tyd geneem het om alles aan my te verduidelik.
Dit was vir my inspirerend en leersaam om iemand so resourcefull (wat is die Afrikaans hiervoor ?) te ontmoet, wat so 'n passie vir sy beroep het, en compassion, wat mens selde vandag in die mediese professie ondervind. Ek weet ook dat u beroep geseënd is en dat God u in 'n besondere wyse gebruik, nie net om mense fisies reg te maak nie, maar 'n investment in hulle lewens te maak. Ek weet en glo u het besondere talente en vermoëns ontvang wat net meer sal word. Dit was ook vir my wonderlik om iemamd te sien wat met soveel passie hul droom gevolg het. Ek het tot stilstand gekom en besef ek moet my droom navolg, daar is net een fisiese lewe hier, and "tough times never last, tough people do".

Letter received from a patient who came from the United States of America to see me.

"Dear Prof Nel:
I was a patient of yours in 1999 and 2000. In December, 1999 I underwent a laparoscopy to diagnose Endometriosis and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. The Endometriosis was treated during the laparoscopy with Argon Laser. In July of 2000 you corrected the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome via a very low mini-laparotomy and microsurgical ovarian wedge resection. Since that time I have seen a dramatic decrease in the abdominal pain which I had previously been experiencing and am most grateful !
I am writing to report that I fell pregnant in July of 2001. I think that you keep statistics on your patients and thought that you would find this information useful. I did not intend to fall pregnant, but nevertheless I seem to be fertile ! What is really interesting is that I underwent a laparoscopy on 15 August at the Stellenbosch Medi-Clinic for an ectopic pregnancy, which apparently was lodged on the edge of my right ovary. The tube is still intact. I had a simultaneous pregnancy in utero which continues to progress well, with a due date of 17 April.
This information may be useful to you in your record-keeping. Please contact me at the above address if you would like further information. It is doubtless due to your help that we were able to conceive this baby, so we are most grateful (even though he was not planned). We trust that this letter finds you and your family well.
Best Regards,

Testimonial written by Matron N. C. Shuping, Department Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Pelonomi Hospital, Bloemfontein.

"TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
I have been aquainted with Prof. J.T. Nel since August 1987, when I was allocated to the Maternity Wards, Departments of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. He is very industrious, enthusiastic, with good human relations. He was involved with the development of education - theoretically and practically. This resulted in high quality medical and nursing care in Pelonomi Hospital. The high standard of medical and nursing care was also recognised during Provincial Inspections and Examinations, which occur yearly.
In an independent survey conducted by a private firm, in which "Batho Pele" principles were evaluated, the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Department, scored more than 90%, which was double that of any other department.
In the Nursing Profession his intellectual knowledge and skills, together with the book he wrote ('Core Obstetrics & Gynaecology'), led us to produce well-trained midwives and advanced midwives. He was always accessible when needed for tuition issues. He also helped nurses doing a Masters Degree in Nursing at the School of Nursing, University of the Free State, also after hours when he was off duty.
When the Hospital introduced Cost Centres, Prof. J.T.Nel was appointed Clinical Head of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, in Pelonomi Hospital, and Director of the Departments' Cost Centre. Through his leadership and dedication the Cost Centre has always been within its' budget. He successfully motivated for "moonlighting" to reduce the shortage of nurses in the maternity section. His dedication demonstrated to nurses that dedication is a virtue, and that it is essential in becoming a good employee - he has shown us the difference between just being a worker and having a career.
His God-gifted respect to all categories of staff, was well noticed. Through his negotiations with the Department of Physiotherapy, third year physiotherapy students help with postnatal exercises in the Postnatal Unit.
He implemented communication between Level 1 and 2 institutions, in the form of a monthly meeting with him as Chairman. These meetings produced excellent results. Statistics were kept, and maternal and perinatal mortality discussed and recorded. This educated staff, with a resultant decrease in maternal and perinatal mortality and morbidity. New scientific research findings were discussed at each meeting, thus motivating staff to become involved in research.
He also successfully implemented monthly departemental and cost centre meetings. Prof. J.T. Nel was very enthusiastic in the implementation of the "Baby Friendly Hospital Iniative". He was in the first group of Top Management Staff to attend the 18 hour "BFHI" Course. This declared that Pelonomi Hospital satisfied the requirements of a UNICEF/WHO "Baby Friendly Hospital".
This department is privileged to have a dedicated leader like himself, who sees to it that the 8 "Batho Pele Principles" and the "Patients Rights Charter", are adhered to. This is how I have known Prof. J.T.Nel to be in the years that he has been here.
I am honoured to state that I can recommend him, for whatever position he may apply for. I can confidently vote that he will engage in those activities, required from him, with dedication and leadership. He is excellent - although I am his junior, he always showed respect towards me. In all this, he has left his mark in Pelonomi Hospital.

Matron NC Shuping: Wrote me a long testimonial to thank me for all the effort and time that I put into Pelonomi Hospital.

"Matron NC Shuping thanked me for the attention I gave to patients and teaching students to treat patients with courtesy, empathy and warmness. She also thanked me for my leadership and for my efforts in seeing to it that the new labour ward was built, including re-designing of the architectural plans, in conjunction with the architect. She thanked me for iniating departemental meetings, meetings with the peripheral clinics, cost centre meetings and for successfully implementing a cost centre with Me Yvonne Mouers (a bright and brilliat lady). Additionally she thanked me for protecting the African ('black') sisters and nurses, when insulting remarks were made on the bedcharts, by some white doctors. I arranged a meeting between these two doctors, myself and Matrons Charlie and NC Shuping. I had no hesitation in telling these two doctors that there insulting remarks were unacceptable. Additionally I told them that they are in training, and if somebody has to go, it will certainly not be the matrons. I will not at this stage mention the names of these two doctors, despite the lies they spread about me after this incident and to whom. I was always willing to listen to fair complaints, but I did not tolerate insulting racist remarks. This kind of incident happened only once during my 20 years of service at Pelonomi Hospital, since the story quickly spread as to how the situation was handled. The vast majority of white doctors treated patients with skill, compassion and empathy, despite the massive workload. At one stage we were only two consultants, thus having to do more than thrice the workload of consultants at Universitas Hospital (the 'white' hospital during the 'Apartheid' years). These two doctors were not willng to stay on in Pelonomi Hospital - one emigrated and the other one is in private practice." - 2006

Some comments published by Heinemann on the back cover of 2002 reprint: Core Obstetrics & Gynaecology Ed. Johan Theron Nel.

"1. "I am most impressed and have no hesitation whatsoever in making it a prescribed textbook for our students. I can truly say that it is the best undergraduate textbook which I have ever had the privilege of reading."
Prof EWW Sonnendecker, Academic Head, Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of the Witwatersrand..
2. "For some years now, I have decried our dependence on overseas textbooks and have lamented the lack of a good, homegrown, comprehensive, student-centred textbook of obstetrics and gynaecology, designed specifically for Southern African needs. Such a local publication has just emerged. " The book is written for the clinical student preparing for his or her final M.B.Ch.B. examinations in this speciality, although this format renders it particularly suitable as a reference work for practising clinicians. "This user-friendly textbook has an attractive layout and a well-conceived format of headings, subheadings and numbering of subparagraphs. The text is liberally illustrated with clear photographs and good quality line drawings, and is written in straightforward, no-nonsense language and an easy style. "This is a book that I would enthusiastically recommend for undergraduate students in obstetrics and gynaecology, and for practitioners involved in the care of women."
Prof Daniel J Ncayiyana, SAMJ, Volume 85, No 11, Nov 1995.
3. "It is refreshing to encounter a medical textbook in which the author manages, through the use of an original approach and style of writing, to provide a surprisingly reader-friendly exposition of the theoretical and factual background as well as the practical aspects of the study area."
Prof Frans Geldenhuys, Professor Emeritus (University of Pretoria).
4. "This is more than a reliable textbook; it is a dependable partner in difficult times. It provides more than the mere content required by a student and supplies the most common examination questions asked. The book provides diagnostic and therapeutic regimes for those times when the medical practitioner wishes his/her mentor was close by to give the advice the student needs. In these situations, fortunately, Professor Nel's depth of knowledge and experience is at hand."
Dr Louis Fourie Smith, B.Sc.M.B.Ch.B.
