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 his patients.
He matriculated from St. Alban’s College in 1997 and completed his MBChB at UCT in 2003. He spent almost five years as a junior doctor in KZN and more than three years as a general surgery registrar at UCT, before starting his urology registrar time in February 2012. He completed his final examinations (FCUrol) in 2015 and was awarded his MMed degree in 2016. In 2016 he was awarded the Phillip Smith Prize for the best postgraduate student in Urology.
Dr Dewar then completed an SUO-accredited two-year fellowship in urological surgical oncology at Western University and the London Health Sciences Centre in London, Ontario, Canada from July 2016 to June 2018. During that time, he completed an MSc degree, performed clinical and basic sciences research, and was involved in a high volume of open, laparoscopic, and robotic surgeries.
Dr Dewar joined Cape Urology in July 2018. He practices general adult urology with a special interest in managing urological cancers. He is a certified robotic surgeon, and regularly performs robot-assisted prostatectomy using the Da Vinci X system at Kingsbury. He has rooms and operates at Kingsbury Hospital. He also consults in Fish Hoek and performs minor cases at Harbour Bay Medical Centre in Simons Town. Dr Dewar is a senior lecturer in the Division of Urology at UCT and attends a theatre list once a week at Groote Schuur Hospital where he teaches urological oncology surgery to urology trainees.
