“We at the Netcare Group mourn the loss of a healthcare professional of such great stature. Dr Mohamed was highly respected and well liked by his colleagues, patients as well as by the staff and management of Netcare Unitas Hospital where he has practised for 20 years,” said Du Plessis.

“We wish to express our sincere condolences to his wife, Rehana, and children. Dr Mohamed will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege to know him,” he added.

Dr Mohamed completed his undergraduate and post-graduate studies at the University of the Western Cape and thereafter went on to do his maxillofacial specialist training at Groote Schuur Hospital. His paediatric maxillofacial training was completed at the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital in Cape Town, South Africa.

“Dr Mohamed not only contributed at a clinical level to Netcare Unitas Hospital but also played an active role in assisting the management with suggestions to improve processes to the benefit of patients and the communities served by the hospital,” concluded Du Plessis.
