Dr. Malcolm Dewar is a specialist urological surgeon and fellowship-trained urologic oncologist, whose aim is to deliver exceptional patient-centred, evidence-based care to all of his patients.  
He grew up in Johannesburg and Mpumalanga, and matriculated from St. Alban’s College in Pretoria in 1997, achieving honours in scholarship and science.
His undergraduate medical training was at the University of Cape Town from 1998 to 2003. He then spent almost 5 years in KwaZulu-Natal gaining valuable experience as a junior doctor, with most of that time working in various surgical disciplines. In November 2008 he returned to Cape Town to start what would become just over 3 years of general surgery training at UCT. He then started his Urology training at UCT in 2012, passing the fellowship exam in 2015 and his MMed degree in 2016.  He was awarded the Phillip Smith Prize for the best postgraduate student in Urology.
 He then completed a two year fellowship in urologic oncology at the London Health Sciences Centre in Canada, ending in June 2018. The fellowship program is one of only two in Canada accredited by the Society of Urologic Oncology and is located at one of Canada’s largest and highest volume academic referral centres. His first year of the fellowship concentrated on basic science and translational research into biomarkers for prostate cancer, during which time he completed an MSc in Surgery degree. The second year was spent primarily in the operating room, where he was involved in more than 400 major surgical cases and gained extensive experience in open, laparoscopic, and robotic urologic oncology surgery.
Dr. Dewar practices general urology with a special interest in the treatment of cancers of the urinary tract and male genital tract, including cancer of the prostate, kidney, bladder, testis, penis, and adrenal gland. He has rooms and operates at Vincent Pallotti and Kingsbury Hospitals, and performs robotic surgery at Christiaan Barnard Hospital. He is also an adjunct lecturer in the Division of Urology at the University of Cape Town, where he is involved in twice-weekly registrar and medical student teaching within the uro-oncology surgical service at Groote Schuur Hospital. He has several peer-reviewed publications and has presented at numerous international urology meetings.
He is happily married to Lucille, and has a son and daughter. He also enjoys reading, running, and spending time with his family.
