About Dr. Maré Du Plessis – Specialist Surgeon
Hello, I am Maré du Plessis. When you choose a surgeon you will want to be sure that you are in good hands. Below is an overview of what I have achieved so far in my medical career.
Over the past decade I have reached significant milestones in my medical career. I graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine Degree from the University of Pretoria in 2006. It was during my undergraduate years that I developed a keen interest in surgery.
Then followed 3 years of foundational training in surgery during my internship and community service which I did on the East Rand in Gauteng.
In 2010 I married my wonderful wife Vanessa and moved down to Cape Town – for the wine and great outdoor life, of course – I am a keen runner and cyclist. During that year I also spent several months working at Groote Schuur hospital’s trauma unit as a medical officer where I gained phenomenal experience in trauma-related cases.
The following year, in 2011, I started general surgical training at Tygerberg Hospital and the University of Stellenbosch. My dissertation for my Master of Medicine (MMed) studies was a retrospective review on breast cancer patients’ outcomes at Tygerberg hospital, entitled “Outcomes of Breast Carcinoma in a resource-limited environment.” This was accepted by and published in the South African Journal of Surgery in July 2015.
I passed the College of Surgeons of South Africa examination in 2015 and achieved a Master of Medicine (MMed) Degree in Surgery in from the University of Stellenbosch.
In 2016 I joined the Melomed Group as a full-time specialist surgeon, and in 2017 I relocated my practice to Mediclinic Milnerton.
I live in Bergvliet in Cape Town and I am privileged to serve the general practitioners and patient community of the southern suburbs of Cape Town. I am a keen cook and have a great interest in the wonderful wines the Cape has to offer.
“My 18-year old daughter, Shanice had an op with Dr. Du Plessis to remove a fibroadenoma in her breast. He handled Shanice with so much care and made her feel very comfortable … I would recommend Dr. Du Plessis as a surgeon to any patient. His advice and his medical knowledge is the best.”

“I would like to thank you and your team for all the amazing service I received during my stay at Melomed Tokia for surgery for a bilateral inguinal hernia. From the moment I met you my mind was set at ease. The professional yet friendly way things were explained to me was refreshing.”
- Tristan Lee
The very thought of hospitalisation is scary and traumatising, but caring doctors like you make it friendly and pleasing.
Your team took care of me as i was the most important person on earth 🙂 Nicole Andrews
