Welcome to our practice, where healing is at the heart of what we do.

Dr Michelle Maree

Orthopaedic Surgeon

I am Dr Michelle Maree, an Orthopedic Surgeon trained in South Africa. I specialise in Hand and Upper Limb surgery. I embarked on my medical journey at the University of Cape Town (UCT), where I earned my medical degree in 1995. I am driven by a commitment to excellence and compassion.

After my internship in Kwa-Zula Natal, my passion for orthopaedics deepened. My diverse experience includes orthopaedic and general surgery and a significant stint in emergency medicine in Nigeria. I returned to Cape Town to complete my orthopaedic surgery training and obtained my Masters of Medicine from UCT in 2009. My expertise has been enhanced by several hand surgery fellowships, locally at Groote Schuur Hospital and abroad in the United Kingdom, providing me with a global perspective in my practice.

I have been honoured with awards such as Best Research Registrar and Best Registrar of the Year, alongside recognitions for my contributions to medical literature. My special interests include managing conditions like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Trigger Finger, De Quervain’s, Thumb Arthritis, and undertaking complex Hand and Wrist Reconstructive Surgery, Nerve and Tendon Repair, Brachial Plexus Surgery, and Management of Rheumatoid Hand.

Beyond my clinical and surgical endeavours, I am actively involved in the medical community, sharing insights through presentations at society congresses, instructional course lectures, and publications in leading medical journals. My professional journey is driven by a blend of challenge and curiosity, balanced by the joys of running and the company of my two wonderful daughters.
