Jaco obtained his MBChB in 1997 from the University of Pretoria. After completing his internship in South Africa, he went to the United Kingdom where he worked as a Senior House Officer at various hospitals, many of which were accredited Psychiatry training posts by the Royal College of Psychiatrists. Jaco returned to South Africa in 2002 and specialised in Psychiatry at the University of the Witwatersrand.
He is a general adult Psychiatrist, but has a special interest in Mood Disorders (particularly Bipolar Disorder) as well as Neuro-Psychiatry (Psychiatric manifestations of epilepsy, stroke and other organic causes).
Jaco was actively involved in setting up an ECT (Electro-convulsive treatment) protocol at the Crescent Clinic Johannesburg and offers this type of treatment to patients with severe depressions and other conditions responding to ECT. Jaco’s philosophy is to empower and involve his patients in designing treatment plans, ensuring that the patient is fully informed about the diagnosis and all treatment modalities
