Gynaecologist – General and Aesthetic, Endoscopic Surgeon
in Cape Town & Johannesburg




I am a gynaecologist with a special interest in minimally invasive surgery, pelvic floor disorders and cosmetic gynaecology practising in the Gardens area of Cape Town and Melrose Arch area of Johannesburg. I live in Cape Town and travel to Johannesburg regularly to attend to my patients. My practice in Cape Town is situated in Vredehoek and at Melrose Arch in Johannesburg.

I am passionate about looking after women with gynaecological problems and finding an answer to my patients’ needs. Aesthetic gynaecology is a new exciting field and I am proud to be the first aesthetic gynaecologist in South Africa certified by the European Society of Aesthetic Gynaecology.

Being an advanced minimally invasive gynaecological surgeon and having worked in various medical settings around the world allows me to bring a full package of skills to women seeking assistance with female genital reconstructive surgery and non-invasive procedures, improving genital appearance as well as treating incontinence, vaginal dryness, laxity, and other problems.

I come from Ukraine, where I got my medical degree in 1998. I studied and worked in different countries (Ukraine, Sweden, Australia, and finally South Africa).

    Dear Dr Novikova

    Thank you for my clear cancer screening, I am indeed very blessed by this.

    May I please say my experience with you has been one of gentleness and the most unexpected profound kindness that I have never ever experienced in all my many sad years of having endometriosis. As a matter of fact I have only ever known hostility and prejudice! And pain!

    During our conversation I suddenly lost all my words! My mouth and clever brain just froze. I am brave but am ashamed of that fear. So what did you do? You looked at me with utter compassion, with your deep eyes and heart! You saw me clearly as I truly am for a small moment! I thank you for that. That is indeed the mark of a true healer.

    Dare I say keep fighting for your beautiful art of love and healing!

    “I am delighted with the experience and results. I had quite a bit of sensitivity and pain the afternoon after the procedure (partially because I think my pain threshold is so low) but from the second day I haven’t had any problems. Even when exercising or wearing tight clothing. I am absolutely thrilled with the results. Everything about this process has been such a blessing and I really appreciate it so much, thank you.”

    “I received the best possible care from Dr Novikova and her team of health care specialists, and would happily recommend her gynaecological services to any prospective patient. Her manner during the procedure was quietly reassuring and she was kind and efficient when it came to dealing with post-operative concerns.”

    I cannot thank you enough. You are amazing at what you do and have gentle, healing hands. Thank you so much for all the sacrifices you’ve made on your journey to become such an excellent surgeon & Dr. I can imagine how many hours of study, exams & tests you’ve had to undertake.
