About Dr Caroline Zabiegaj-Zwick
Dr Caroline Zabiegaj-Zwick started her medical career at the University of Cape Town, where she was first exposed to paediatric surgery, as well as the care of children as an undergraduate. After graduating in 2007 from UCT, Caroline went to Johannesburg to complete her internship training, where she developed a love for surgery and the surgical specialities.
It was during Caroline’s community service year in general surgery, where her love for paediatric surgery was truly ignited. On completion of community service in 2010, Caroline returned to the Western Cape to work at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital as a medical officer in the trauma front room. The love and care of critically ill and injured children further cemented her passion for paediatric surgery, and she was overjoyed when she accepted a position at Tygerberg Hospital in paediatric Surgery.
After 6 years of training, Caroline attained her Fellowship in the College of Paediatric Surgery in South Africa in 2016, as well as a Masters in Medicine in Paediatric Surgery from Stellenbosch University in the same year.
After completion of her studies, Caroline took some time off to have a baby, and has subsequently been working in private practice, mainly at N1 City Hospital, but also offering a paediatric surgical service to a number of hospitals in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town.
Caroline’s special interests in paediatric surgery include neonatal surgery, as well as hepatobiliary and oncology surgery.
