Dr-Gabriel-DoucasDr Doucas believes that a good surgeon knows when not to operate. He is both passionate and meticulous about ensuring that his patients fully understand any procedure they may be considering. He ensures that this is the case by explaining complex medical procedures and their consequences, using easy-to-understand, non-medical terminology.

Dr Doucas firmly believes that patients should be empowered to make informed decisions about prospective surgery and he therefore provides them with the requisite tools to do so. This is followed-up by comprehensive post-surgical care and consultation.

Dr Gabriel Doucas graduated from the University of the Free State with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. He then went on to specialise as a Fellow of the College of Plastic Surgeons of South Africa, through the University of the Witwatersrand.

In addition to running a successful private practice from the Netcare Linksfield Hospital, he is also a founding member of Pure Aesthetics, a non-surgical aesthetic centre, which is also based in the Linksfield hospital.
